My sister Lucy

In yesterday's gift guide, I mentioned that my twin sister Lucy teared up when she first met Toby. Here are two photos from that day, back in September. As you can tell, the love-at-first-sight was mutual. :)


Rachel Dangerfield said...

My sister isn't my twin, but my babies always recognized her when they wouldn't go to anyone else, even if we'd been apart for months. Someone once told me our heart rhythms are very similar.
What a special moment to capture, thank you for sharing!

Meghan said...

that is so special. love that you caught that with photos. sisteres are one of a kind.

Grandma Kathleen said...

I tried to leave a comment on the monday giveaway but it wouldn't let me! It said it was full! I love any and all pictures of Toby!

Aura said...

I thought it was you with bangs! It's nice to have a twin with different hair, that was you can test drive and see what they'd look like before committing :)

Cassandra Marie said...

So cute :)

maggie said...

i cannot believe how sweet and moving these two photos are!

Joanna Goddard said...

Aww how sweet & he loved her too!!

jacqueline said...

Angel Court Jewels... said... wonderful that you captured this moment on film.


Tricia said...

So sweet! I love his little expression like he's holding on to her for dear life. Adorable.

marina esmeraldo said...

hey, jo! that is a really sweet moment. my father has had three children in his 2nd marriage and everytime i heard their sweet little cries for the first time, i wept.

for the first one i was traveling and missed the day of birth but heard my newborn sister's (20 years apart from me) cries through the phone, and i started bawling my eyes out immediately (and then again once i met her!). four years later, her mother had twins, and i got to see them in person, and once again with the all-encompassing emotion and weeping.

welcoming a baby into your life is a precious experience, for everyone involved... i'm really happy that toby was born into a beautiful loving family. congratulations!

little t said...

Its because your sister looks SO like you its uncanny.

Claire said...

ah.. what a cuddlebug! I wonder if he thought she was you... :)

britt said...

i love how the emotion was captured in these photos. made me tear up. so sweet!

Caroline Royce said...

I bet he really likes her because she looks just like mommy.

Anonymous said...

I'm a twin. I think Toby bonded with your sister because she probably smells like you. I mean you guys did share space in the womb. :-)

He's a gorgeous boy!

stephanie said...

Lucy is beautiful, just like you. Those pictures are precious. xo

Ali said...

I'm sure I'm the 1,516th person to say this, but you and your sister look so much alike! Am I crazy, or are you twins?

PoetessWug said...

Awwww!She's gonna be the best Auntie ever!!! Love, love is sorta like win/win!! :-)

Joanna Goddard said...

yes, we're twins, see the post :)

B. Inspired. said...

So sweet;)

Tish said...

my boyfriend is a twin as well and his twin brother's baby can't tell them apart. he'll only let his parents (and my boyfriend) hold him and he cries when my guy leaves thinking it's pop. it's flippin adorable...the bond of a twin to their niece or nephew...

Meg Trainer said...

So Darling - and I know how she feels - My sister just had a baby about the same time you didi! And I love being an Aunt - truly the highlight of my life! I am hoping that you will have holiday gift ideas for the wee set! Merry Xmas Jo!

Gosh, for non-identical twins you looks very alike (facial expression especially!). These photos are the sweetest. I remember my brothers meeting L. for the firs time - very emotional. Babies bring nothing but happiness, eh?!

There is just something about Mommy's sister that is especially familiar to a little baby.

Just clicked on this link, reminded me of a funny story.

One of our family friends has an identical twin sister. They live in separate continents and met up again after a few years when her daughter, M, was five.

One night, M went to the kitchen where her Mum was cooking and then to the lounge to find her Aunt reading and completely freaked out. She thought her Mum was a witch and wouldn't stop sobbing for hours.
