    Default Great things about having 2 daughters

    We've just had our second daughter. DH is inclined to try again for a boy but I'm pretty content with 2 girls. For those with two girls, please tell me what you love about it. I don't have any sisters but I've always imagined it would be great to have a sister.

    I have two, one is 4 and the second 1. I love seeing them grow closer and start to play together. They argue and yell etc, but then the hug and laugh again and it makes it all worth it.

    I also am enjoying watching my little one idolise her sister. She thinks her big sister is amazing!!!

    I have two daughters!! It's amazing! They were born about 23 months apart. They love and care for each other, they have private jokes, only they get them, and they find them hilarious! They look for each other at school, they are proud of each other and love to show each other off, like "this is MY sister!" Kind of thing, if they meet a new friend, or go into each other's classrooms.

    They can sometimes get annoyed and frustrated with each other, more because one wants to play a separate game to her sister. They both try to dictate which game, but they can't always agree..

    I have a toddler and 8 month old girls. 24 months almost to the day between them.

    I have 2 daughters. They're 5 and 4 years old now

    They swap clothes (fight too!) also compliment each other randomly " I loooovve that dress!" Lol.

    They don't share a bedroom but they have sleepovers in each other's rooms because they ask and want to be near each other. (Usually when they've been playing nicely or when they've just made up)

    Have strange giggling fits that only they understand

    Play anna and Elsa, taking turns to be each one. Wander about dressed up as them and other random Disney princesses, addressing each other as said character.Swap costumes too.

    Pick flowers for each other, jump on trampoline and play on their bikes together

    Dress up as princesses

    Do each other's hair and have attempted to paint each other's fingernails and toes (this did not go well!)

    They're both very girly so similar in that way

    My 4 year old looks up to her big sis so much and my 5 year old looks out for her little sis.

    Oh and hand me downs!

    I don't think my 4 year old has had much new at all! Probably mostly clothes that have been gifts.

    And she is at the age where getting to wear her big sisters clothes is awesome!
