Walking down the hall to the sonogram room, I had butterflies the whole way. 
I knew it would be another girl. 
I just knew it in my heart. 

And I was right, two sweet girls! 
I have this image. Two blondes, fair skin, light blue eyes. You can tell they are sisters. They are traveling the world with only the packs on their backs. Experiencing this life. Laughing. Talking about where life will lead them.Their hair pulled back in ponytails, tennis shoes on- ready to see, taste, feel, experience.

    I could just read this post over and over again. Your words and photos are so precious! I have three younger brothers, and I remember thinking "ooh, a new toy!" when my parents brought the youngest one home haha. There's nothing quite like siblings!

    They are blessed to have each other to go through the ups and downs of life together. I have a sister who is much older than I am so I never really got to experience that bond you get with a sister who relatively the same age as you. Ainsleigh will be a great older sister 🙂

    My sister and I are 17 months apart, and we are great friends. As we were growing up, my parents never worried about us too much when we went out because they knew two level-headed girls couldn't get into that much trouble.

    I have a very distinct memory of her and I taking a walk and laughing hysterically because our laughs sounded so similar. For a few moments I couldn't tell which laugh was mine and which laugh was hers.

    i was three when my sister was born, and i called her "my baby" and tried to help take care of her whenever i could. now we're 25 and 22, and have been best friends since she was born. she's the best and i couldn't do life without her.

    The headband looks so cuuute! Love it! And me and my sister are about 2 1/2 years apart. I don't know who I would be without her. We get a built in best friend for life. Ains and Apple are going to have so many adventures, memories together. How special!

    My sister is my best friend, always has been. I can not imagine not doing life with her. In fact, I can not go there, it will make me weep! I felt the same way when I gave birth to my 2nd daughter, that I gave my first her best friend. Glad to see other mommas feel the same way!

    Oh, Casey, thank you for the kind words! 🙂 I just love the look of your photos… So soft and the lighting is perfect. I really worked hard this summer to learn how to use my camera manually, and I do have two lenses, an 18-55 mm and a 75-300 mm, but indoor lighting is so tricky. It looks like you guys don't use a flash (which is what I don't like to use, either). I LOVE these sister picture! Your whole family is precious. When I found out that our third was going to be a boy, I was sad for just a minute, because I wanted my little Emma to have a sister. I only have a brother and I always wanted a sister so badly. But, it will be nice for my Eli to have a brother and Emma was happy as could be about it! I had dreamed we were having a boy so I already felt like I knew… This will be my 3rd C-section, too, so I'm not sure if we'll try for another! Anyway, love these sweet memories of your little ones! Hugs!

    There are so many things I love about this post! The photos are gorgeous…I love the dress form in Apple's room, and the photos of the girls together!
    Also, I have four daughters and although we have our crazy moments, and crazy days, there is nothing I love more than watching them grow up together. I love how my oldest two take care of the younger two, I love watching them all jump on the trampoline…it's just all so heartwarming 🙂

    Thank you for sharing Casey!

    those girls are lucky. my sister and i have a relationship unlike any friendship i've ever had. we truly are best friends…i'm sure your two lovlies will be just the same!

    Awww i love your thoughts on how they will be when they are older. So sweet. Seriously I hope I can give a little sister to my girl one day. I always wanted a sister =)

    oh these comments kill me. My husband and I are trying to space out our next baby since our girl and boy are less than 12 months apart but I REALLY want another boy and girl close in age so my daughter has a best friend/sister and my son has a best friend/brother

    September 27th, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    i have absolutely the same dream 🙂 i don't have a sister only a brother, and i just envision my two little blondies too. so far….3 boys lol 😉 still working on it.

    I am obsessed with these sweet pictures. Such a sweet post. Sisters really are so great! How lucky they are. I have four sisters and we had so much fun growing up. And we still do!

    Your daughters are both so beautiful!! I love the picture you painted in my mind of them being best friends someday.. I have a son and I want another boy for him to be best friends with 🙂

    This is such a beautiful thought! I have a little sister, I'm 10 years older than her so she's still a teenager, we fought alot when I was younger but as soon as I got married it changed.Now I love being the person to her that I wish I had as a teenager. My husband and I try to be that for both my little brother and her and I've seen how confident and loved the are because of it. I hope they will be even more succesful than my older brother and I. When people tell me they only want two kids because its more "affordable" I feel so sad for them- I've had a sister and two brothers and its been the greatest blessing! Our family is fun and lively, my brothers and cousin are my husbands best friends, its kept my parents fun and young. I have so much love in my life because my parents decided to have two more children. Ainsleigh and Apple are so lucky to have each other, and a brother-I love my brothers and they will too:)

    I can't wait to start a family of my own! Keep up the beautiful work in everything you do Casey

    Such a sweet post! Loved what you wrote about your vision for them as sisters. I'm expecting girl number two as well and Astair and I are over the moon excited 🙂 I have three boys so I was due another girl.

    oh, and i just love how cute Apple looks in that headband!!!

    look at the way Apple is looking at Ansley while she feeds her! This pic needs to be shared with moms who are upset about not having a connection with baby bc they arent able to breast feed…this pic alone shows you can still have a connection!
