We have a collage that my mom made of some of Harper's pictures sitting on our book shelf. Last night while we were making dinner Norah was swinging and started to get a little fussy so we switched the direction of the swinging from side to side to front to back (more like rocking). Right after changing directions, we noticed her looking up at her sister's picture. She seemed mesmerized by it. She stopped fussing immediately and just stared and stared. I couldn't help but take a picture through my tears and it captured what looks like Norah waving to Harper. Even typing it out brings tears to my eyes. I wonder if they communicate. As Chris said, "If anyone is able to talk to Harper it would be Norah". I know Harper is looking down and is happy but I miss her so much and wish both of my babies were here.
