Black and White


I took this picture a few weeks ago. It was taken right before church, aren't they cute?

I had to laugh when I looked at it. Adyson in her "little black dress." (She's such a diva.) And Sienna in her sweet white spring dress. Opposites. And they are.


I assumed when we found out we were having another little girl (Sienna), that she would be like her big sis. Blond as can be, a total princess and girly in every way.


Silly me. They are pretty different kids!


Adyson is scared of everything. I mean everything. Bugs, strangers, going new places...you get the gist. It takes her a while to warm up to new situations. She always gets there, but it takes time with her. She is cautious. (maybe cautious is a better word than scared...)


Sienna on the other hand, dives right in. The other day Adyson was crying because there was a dead bug on the doorstep, (yes, she's scared of dead bugs too). Sienna ran inside, got a tissue, picked up the dead bug, and threw it in the toilet. It was hilarious! She has her shy moments, but usually is waving hello to anyone and everyone.


Adyson has the straightest hair. It is so beautiful and shiny, but jet straight.


Sienna, well you've all witnessed her amazing curls.


Adyson loves barbies and dolls, make-up and dress-ups. All things girlie.


While Sienna enjoys these things, you wouldn't be surprised to see her playing with a match box car any day of the week.


Adyson still doesn't dare go down the hill in a bike. (We are working on it.)


Sienna will hop in her little car and zoom right into the middle of the street.


You get it, they are different! I love their differences. I love Adyson's cautious motherly nature. And yes, I've complained that she's not brave enough at times, but I wouldn't change a thing about her, it's who she is-and I dig it. I love Sienna's brave heart. I love how curious she is, and trusting. And yes, I've complained that she's too brave (the grass is always greener...). I think it is so much fun to watch them grow and see who they really are!


They do have similarities too, like they are dramatic. (I wonder where they get that from...), they are silly, funny, smart, great kids!


Oh and did I mention I think they are perfect? Well, I do.

Melissa said...

I have been a blog slacker! What cuties. How boring if god sent us all the same kind of kids!! I can't wait to see what he sends us next (and that's not an announcement), but I love seeing how different kids personalities are!!

I remember thinking the same thing about Polly. Well, it'll be about the same... Not true. We used to say Polly acts first, thinks later! The curly tops sound the same in that way. They must play soon.

Each of your little girlies have such cute hair. I am so used to seeing dark hair. I love the blonde!!

Troy and Cami said...

they are both darling, i loved hearing all that great stuff about them, very cute.

Jami said...

As usual I love your posts-so fun to read. It's fun to learn a little bit more about them! Ellie has been such a wonderful baby, very mellow and hardly ever cries so I tell myself that I could handle 4 or 5 of these easy but then I have to remind myself that not ever child is going to have the same personality. Where they quite different from each other as babies?

Hayley said...

Jami

I got pretty lucky. They were both VERY easy babies. Great sleepers, happy babies, but they still had different personalities.

Maybe you will get lucky and your next will be easy too.

Matt & Jill said...

It's funny they are so different. Allie and Dallin are totally different too. Yes I know, Dallin is a boy and Allie is a girl. :) But even still Dallin turns and runs from me in the store, church, Disneyland, everywhere! Allie still won't leave my side. It's nice I wish Dallin would stay by me!
YOur girls are both so cute in their own special ways!!!

Jan said...

Sometimes I have a hard time imagining the possibility of having a child different than Carson - coming from the same genes and all. This post was great and makes me excited to learn about our next one... hopefully he's easy like Carson was though.

Hay- your girls are so darn cute and getting so big!!!! Can't wait to see you all.

Bre said...

Your girls really are too cute, I love that they are different, thats how my boys are! But it is so fun to have such different personalities in our home as well. I love your posts, they are so fun to read and I love your fam!

tina said...

You have such an awesome blog, and so many readers. Your girls are adorable, just like their mommy! I love your attitude towards life!

The McClellan Clan said...

That is so true!! That is the total same with my girls too. I was just expecting them to be so much alike. Since they were both girls ya know!! But its fun to see the difference and now they can both bring so much to the table. And make you laugh in such different ways!! Girls are a ball of fun. But OHHHHHH the DRAMA!!

Love the pictures! I have to say our girls are a lot alike, even with the straight hair/curly hair. Adyson & Addison and Sienna & Oakli. I love having girls. The comparisons are so fun, I love them. :)

Heidi Kjar said...

Your girls are so cute- that was fun to read about their differences! I would kill for that curly hair Sienna has!

Tasha said...

Wow, I am amazed at how much your girls look just like you. The curly hair - just like your own locks back in the day...
I have enjoyed checking out your blog and others from SVHS, it is too bad some are private, I would love to see how everyone is doing. Such a blast from the past! I will check in on you frequently, thanks for finding me! :)
