Admittedly, Kevin and I are somewhat of germaphobes. Especially when our kids are babies. And especially when it is cold/flu season. So, we are constantly correcting Kate about touching and being in Karsten's face. But the kisses are sweet. And we're totally okay with it.
I mean, who wouldn't want to kiss those sweet cheeks?
My prayer is that these two girls grow up to be the best of friends. I have a sister that is 2 years younger. While we were really little, we probably got along pretty well. I don't really remember. I guess I'd need to ask my parents! But as middle schoolers and teenagers, we did not get along at all. Maybe there was too much competition between us. Who knows. But now? Best friends. It might have taken us a while to get here, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
And maybe Kate will always want to give her little sister kisses. And maybe Karsten will always look at her big sister like this.
