Zoya and Mila are so different from one another, but they make perfect sisters! Zoya is very protective of Mila. If she is fussing, Zoya does not like it and will try to make it better. Sometimes she will sign, "together" which means "pick her up! she wants to be with you!" Sometimes Zoya will give me suggestions on how to make Mila stop fussing (I swear Zoya thinks she is the mama hah). She will say "Mama baba," or "BINKY!" Sometimes she wll run over to her just to be there, which almost always makes Mila stop crying. It is so sweet.  Zoya really doesn't show jealousy (anymore) with Mila. She takes pride in sharing her toys with Mila and will do so all on her own and then look at me and say "Mama, share Mila" with a big smile! Zoya loves helping with diapers and taking Mila's bottle over to the sink when it's all gone. Zoya sometimes needs reminders to not squeeze Mila when she wants to hug her and to not get so close to her face. Mila just admires her big sister and smiles when she sees her.  I love seeing the two of them interact with one another. It's so sweet!

I can't wait to watch their relationship grow over the years! They are so blessed to have one another!

And here is a sweet video of the girls:


  1. These pictures brought tears to my eyes. Thank you so much for sharing. They are both beautiful and I love seeing how well Mila is doing.

    Carlene's soon to be momma :)

  2. Those 2 little girls are precious. What a pair they make. Zoya is a great big sister and as the years go by will be so kind and helpful to Mila. How I wish I could see and hug them.
    You guys are so lucky that God saved them for you. Love them and keep telling us about them and their fun together.

    Easter blessings to you all from Texas.

  3. These pictures are priceless!! I love the intensity with which they look at each blessed they (and you) are to have each other!!! (((BIG HUGS))) from RI!!!

  4. I love all the sister pictures!! Claire loves her sister lots, but is terribly jealous right now. She's also pretty rough with sister at times. She'll pat her on the back so nice, then half a second later try to scratch her eyes out. :/
