I've been finding these two playing nicely {and quietly} a lot these days so I try and secretly snap a few photos here and and there as much as I can. Or some hilarious video like the one of Delainey trying to get Ryder into his jammies. I was dying laughing listening to them and then just had to try and get some of it on video. He was being so patient with her just standing there clinging to the crib rails and she was trying so hard "ok bud I think we almost got it". It was just too much. 

"The greatest gift our parents ever gave us was each other"

With all those quiet perfect moments of them playing sweetly there are many, many meltdowns and teaching moments throughout our days. They both shed many tears brought on by the other and I don't know how many times I tell Delainey that one day Ryder is going to be bigger and stronger than her - just like Uncle Jeff with me! She doesn't quite get it.

Delainey often asks to play in the crib with Ryder, which is great seeing as neither of them will climb out so I have them trapped for a few very loud minutes but they love it and will surely break the crib soon. ;) I will never tire of watching them together though. When they get laughing together it's pretty much the best part of my day. I can't help but stop what I am doing and watch them and laugh myself.  Especially with Delainey snorts she's laughing so hard. They are at such a fun age interacting with each other and Ryder will do pretty much anything Delainey wants him to at this point.

These Finn + Emma pajamas are our absolute favorite. I love the fit for my kids. They are a narrower fit in the top with plenty of room to grow in the waist and in length. They are made with buttery soft, thick yet breathable G.O.T.S., certified organic cotton and non-toxic, eco-friendly dyes. Since this is their second pair I knew to go with the 4T for Delainey and then decided to size up and went with a 2T for Ryder. They also have these tribal ones and he has a 18-24 months and both fit him just great.

I had Delainey pick which ones she wanted this time around and told her she could choose from any print including a girlier print like these zebras or the fairytales and we could choose a different print for Ry. She initially wanted the arrow print for both of them but they were sold out of her size so she chose the totem ones and definitely wanted Ryder to match! This brand new giraffe print is my favorite right now though. 

I know Ryder isn't always going to pine for Delainey's attention and I know soon Delainey won't think matching her brother {or her Mom} is super cool. It's all a season that I will cherish.
 And until then I will sit back and enjoy these moments and snap these photos when I can, because every picture tells our story.
I still remember the days so clearly that I hoped and wished for the very things I have now. Not quite sure how we got this lucky.
