I absolutely love watching Grace and Cora's budding sibling relationship. They have their moments of sibling squabbles, especially Cora grabbing Grace's hair and Grace yanking toys out of Cora's hands, but for the most part, they really really love each other. When one cries, the other often cries too. Nothing gets Cora happier faster than Grace laughing. When Grace is playing alone, she often asks me to bring Cora over to play with her.
Here are two especially sweet interactions I don't want to forget:
After listening to a children's song that references being a best friend:
Michael: "Grace, who's your best friend?"
Michael: Do you have a best friend?
Grace: thinks for a second "Cora!"
Cora's first word is "Grace." Her saying it usually goes down like this.
Cora hasn't seen Grace for a few minutes when suddenly Grace walks into the room where Cora is playing. Cora lights up and exclaims: "Grah, Gah, Gah!" i.e. "Grace, Grace, Grace!"
