Sibling Rivalry

These are my nieces, Jade and Kira.

I think sibling rivalry started on the day Kira was brought home from the hospital.



Jade was not so thrilled with the arrival of sister Kira.

Jade: But Dad, Kira likes it when I pinch her face off!

Great day for Jade; not so much for Kira.

Kira shrieking as Jade TOUCHES her.

Jade recently said it would be nice if they could SELL Kira.



I think they will be best friends within 18 years, but hopefully sooner.

That is hilarious! This reminds me of me and my sister growing up. I was a year and a half older and the bully: always stealing the dolls away from her. She would be crying in photos while I was smiling. Such a brat I was! But now we are best friends. I couldn't imagine not having her around.

What a blast from the past. I thought I'd patented that face pinch move! :-)

Big difference from how I was with my little sis, but then I was a middle kid. You know, there's just something obnoxious about the oldest sib. Sorry Jade, but get over it girl. Things will just get worse if Mom and Dad have spawn again.
Great collection of pics, though! Reveals everything ;)

who are they? your nieces? my dad always tells this story about the day my brother jon was born. i was introduced to this turd and i asked the doc if i could exchange it for a puppy. my bro is ugly and gross but a funny asshole

Hehe.
Oh memories! I was very jealous of my sis when she was born.I was constantly trying to beat her up. The resentment was made worse by the fact that when we fought,she would pretend to cry when our mother walked in, just so I'd get in trouble.
She also used to tell me that our parents loved her more than me because she was much cuter.
Evil little bitch.
We do get along a fair bit better these days, although one day together is usually adequate....
:D

I have two girls that did exactly the same thing as your nieces. Today...they are inseparable and best friends!

Hahaha. Just like me and my little brother. I tried to return him to the hospital. Those girls have some priceless expressions.

I love that in every pic but the last one, Jade has got the BIGGEST SMILE while Kira is a wreck. So funny ...they are so effing cute!!! #1 is my all time fave but the rocking horse comes in a close second.

please sir said...

Oh my gosh these photos are too funny - oh siblings!

valerie said...

Genius photographer.

Charlotte said...

They are both gorgeous!

Jennifer said...

this reminds me so much of my childhood. it's not cool when another little person comes along after 3 years of having the spotlight to yourself. i was a bossy bratty older sister, but 20 years later i am now the nice one. i love her, cuz she's my sister, but we are very different. she's probably still getting back at me for big sister abuse when she was 2.

creative kerfuffle said...

those pictures are priceless! LOL
for what it's worth, my brother (the middle child and only sibling i like) is 6 yrs younger than me. i HATED him as a child. i asked my parents to take him back to the hospital. i hated everything about him, probably until i went away to college. now, i'm 40, he's 34 and we've been best friends for about 10 years.

Holly said...

That is too funny. I dn't have siblings, but I imagine I would be the same way as Jade.
