10 months later, Cora repays with some sisterly love. Her first "for sure" word? "Jack-Jack"! She says ma-ma-ma and da-da-da all the time but never for sure names us. I'd thought for a few days she was actually saying Jack-Jack, but this week when we arrived to pick up Jack from a playdate, as soon as she laid eyes on him, she quivered with excitement and said a clear "Dja-Dja".
In the intervening 10 months, there has been lots of mutual adoration, giggles, smiles, hugs (gentle and not-so-gentle), slobbery kisses, a few slaps and pushes, and two unfortunate scratches :( So certainly not all perfect, but the beginnings of a real relationship with its highs and lows.
I love, love, love watching these two interact and am so happy that they will have each other throughout life!
