Two Peas in a Pod...

Twins? Yes...but these two girls couldn't be more different from one another.

Reilly loves skirts...and skirts with shorts attached (girl shorts as she likes to call them) are even better. She is very particular about matching colors and patterns, and accessorizing has become a must. Even if it's just for a short walk around the block, Roo likes to add a purse or necklace or something "extra" to her outfit. Clothing preferences aside, Roo likes to play with her zhu zhu pets and dolls...she is very particular about how their homes get decorated. She loves to ride her bike and is fine playing by herself or with other kids...no preference, as long as she is having fun. Reilly likes to do her own thing on her time. If you ask her to do something, she'll get around to it when it's convenient...and if it's not convenient, she has no problem telling you so (or trying to delegate the task to someone else).

Aiden has turned into my t-shirt and jeans girl. She is kinda picky about the jeans, and almost always rolls them up at the cuff, but she'll pick jeans straight out of the wash before she chooses anything else. Unlike her sister, she's not too picky about color combos or patterns...if it fits and it's comfortable, she's happy. Aiden also likes to layer things...she'll put on a couple of shirts at a time and add a sweatshirt or sweater...guess she picked up the layering habit from her mama. Aiden loves, loves, LOVES to color and draw and practice writing her letters. If she's playing outside, she prefers to have someone to play with...outdoor play is more than a one-person activity in her opinion. Aiden is always willing to lend a helping hand...if you need something done, she's the gal to go to. Whether I'm folding laundry or washing dishes or cooking dinner, her first question is "Mama, can I help you with that?"

Differences aside, I love both of these girls so incredibly much. They make me smile every day and make me laugh even when I don't feel much like doing so. They have become such good friends, wonderful sisters, and I am so lucky to have been blessed to be their mom. I love you Reilly! I love you Aiden!
