love thursday: opposites attract

He’s a boy. She’s a girl. He’s a BIG KID. She’s a TINY BABY. He talks a mile a minute. She’s still in the cooing and gurgling phase. Brother. Sister. A stunner in black and white. Vibrant with color. They are a whirlwind of opposites but they have a lot in common, too, starting with my undying love.
