One of the reasons I purposely had babies 18 months apart was because I hoped they’d be close friends and playmates growing up.
Ella has never really had the chance to be a princess loving girly girl. Her favorite things are tractors, trains, and monster trucks, just like her big brother, Carson. Really, I think it’s a good thing that they like the same things. So far, they are the close friends I wanted them to be.
Of course, Ella has had to learn to be tough, having Carson as her brother. Helmets, when playing with Carson, are usually a pretty good idea.
