Claire's Best Friend
They learn so much from each other. One of my favorite memories is when Claire taught Makenna sign language. Makenna was a so little, she could hardly sit up and Claire would sit and "read" her books by pointing at the picture, signing the word then signing it with Makenna's hands. MELT MY HEART!! These days Makenna is teaching Claire to talk and still signs to her big sister.
They are the same size so we get asked every day if they are twins. Probably because I enjoy dressing them in matching jackets. They are two and a half years apart and will probably graduate from high school together. I pray constantly that they will be able to maintain this special bond. Makenna gets Claire in a beautiful way and Claire is so patient with Makenna's toddlerness.
