From the moment Elsie saw her new babies in the hospital, she has had an immediate attraction and bond with Tess. When she wanted to hold the babies for the first time, I went to hand her Tripp and she said "no Mummy...I want THAT one!" and that sentiment has never wavered. She loves her brother too, but the preference to bond with a little version of herself is precious to watch. I dream that they will be close, not only as children, but as adults. I have always wanted a sister and although I have had many "sisters in spirit" over the years, I hope Tess and Elsie will appreciate eachother in the way only sisters can.
