I was really happy to capture this tender moment between Pistol and LongRifle. It's one of my all time favorite pics. I just love how Pistol has her eyes closed her hands wrapped around her "little sister" (you know that minute really does make her the little sister) and how LongRifle is gently patting her head.
Seriously, not only are they twins but they really are the "BEST" of friends! From the get go we knew they would have a special relationship but we were really able to see it take fruit early on when after having been kept in separate incubators for the first 13 weeks of their lives (they were born 16 weeks early) they were finally allowed to share one. Right away they found each other, and from that moment on they were always connected, little arms entwined, mouth nuzzling the back of sissy's head, or we'd find them embracing each other as they slept. Sure now they're older and they argue and drive each other crazy every now and then, but...they also feed each other food, stand up for each other (even against DrillSgt. and I), and tell each other "I love you sissy, you're my best friend!"
So head on over to I ♥ Faces and check out all the other great My Friend & I pics!
