age makes no difference at all...


Can't you just see them whispering secrets?
Can't you hear their giggles?
I love that their friendship is already evident.

My brother came for a visit over the 4th.
We finally got to meet his daughter, Persephone.
How did our family go so long without such a little bundle of delight?

To say that Aunt Relyn cried all the way home
when Baby P left would not be an exaggeration.
To say that she owns our hearts already would be just about right.

Sloane, 9 1/2 years
Persephone, 5 months
Friends, forever

So sweet to know that Persephone will have a wonderful cousin to follow after and love spending time with.

Beautiful photograph of these 2 special girls. As adults we know that the age difference will be as nothing as they get older. Sweet sweet cousins.

Persephone! Say it slowly and it's a poem all on its own!

Lara said...

This is so sweet. My girls have a new baby cousin too and we cannot wait to meet her someday. (Curses to living so far away from family!)

Delightful photo. And words so true.

amazing how babies do that :)

A baby doesn't need to talk to tell you a lot.

And in addition to being friends, I can see your daughter being a role model too.

Beautiful post.

Precious! From this picture I see Sloane is looking so grown up, but maybe it is the contrast of being 9 1/2 with a 5 month old. Just sweet!

what a sweet photo.
Taylor was 10 when her twin cousins were born and they have form a really great relationship.
Little Persephone sure has a great role model in Sloan.

Awwww! I bet Baby P cried a bit when she left you, too, Relyn. :)

And now you have a reason for another family get-together!
