I've said this before...I always wanted a sister. I love my brother so much, but growing up I really wanted a sister, too.
It seems like there's such a special bond between sisters (I know that isn't true in every case, but the potential for tight friendship is there). Girls growing up in the same family, experiencing their parents and siblings in similar ways as well as in ways that speak to their differences and uniqueness. Playing together. Giggling together. Telling secrects together. Just being together.
Eliana wants to be wherever the big kids are...
but it's true the other way around, too.
