I found these pictures of Joey and Lissie when I was looking through some files on the computer. It made me think of the special friendship that they have had from the beginning. Joey was only six months old when Lissie "surprised" us. Even before she was born, he would "wrap around" my stomach and coo to her. She would kick back and they would have long "conversations". When she was born, he was always gentle with her and they would still coo back and forth for a minutes at a time. She was a very happy baby, but seemed even more content when he was around. When Liss was old enough for a crib, we had to place it next to Joey's and they would fall asleep holding hands through the bars. Early on, the two of them developed their own world and language, much like twins. The look so much alike and have the same build that we have been asked if they were twins ever since they were toddlers. Even as pre-teens, they are still the best of buds. I think it is really cool that they are such good friends and very tight, their friends have quickly learned to not come between them! I hope that they retain this friendship!
