LOVE-ly Day!

Stella and Esme made Valentines on Valentines Day.  Stella named who they were for but said they were to stay on her fridge and were not be mailed.  (???)  Esme is continuing to follow her sister and demands to do everything Stella does.  Monkey see, monkey do.  If Stella comes home from dance/tumble class and shows me her new twirl on her toes and a somersault....the 18 mo old also twirls on her toes and attempts to do a somersault.  They brush their teeth together, they climb and jump together, they dress up together and they even cry together.  Things are not always perfect between them.  Stella was so mad at Esme yesterday, for not helping her pick up the mess they made, that through real tears she declares, "Esme! You are such (huff, huff, tear) a STINKY BUTT (sniff, sniff, tear)!!"  On V-day, Esme did NOT want Stella touching her new toy (a big gumball machine with about 12 balls).  Stella even tried to trade toys, and at one point tried to convince Esme that they could play together.  Esme decides it was worth not actually playing with the toy, in order to hold it and walk around the house with it to keep Stella from playing with it.  Later that night...she brings Stella her blanky and milk and hugs and kisses her.  Last night, we were working on a puzzle and Stella says to me, "I love Esme so much."
