Some things never change...






I ALWAYS find myself having to defend our reasons for only wanting one child. Maybe it's because I am an only child myself that I see the world differently than people with siblings and vice versa. No one NEEDS a sibling. But I can guarantee you that everyone NEEDS a friend. Maybe for some people friends do come in the form of a sibling. Or maybe, no I'm quite certain, that two people can share a bond that some siblings couldn't even hold a candle to.

Those girls are so cute! I think you are totally right--there are bonds that you form with people, making them like family and regardless of whether you are blood related!

Those two little gals are so cute. I love seeing how much they are growing...nice comparison photos. Close friends are wonderful, but you know me, I am the advocate for the big family!! I have a feeling that one Sophie is going to be enough for the world though. :-))

came across your blog by way of another blog. we both have "little bits" who are onlies.
i agree, even though i have a sibling who is my best friend. It isn't enough of a reason for me to have a second. She will have plenty of best buds.

Being an only child myself, I know the importance of having a great friend. You can totally tell that those girls will be best friends for life!
