Big Sister


Yesterday morning was a crazy one. Tess woke first (ALWAYS) before 6am...UHG. Tripp is usually next at 6:30 then Elsie at 7 or 7:30...sometimes even 8, but not nearly often enough! LOL Anyway, Elsie woke at 6:30 and Tripp slept till after 7. When I sat on the couch to feed Tripp, I was immediately joined by Big Sister who wanted to "feed Tripp BY MYSELF!" "By Myself" is a theme in her little life right now. We all piled on the couch in our jammies and Elsie fed him by herself! She did an excellent job, beaming the whole time, and then lifted up the empty bottle and said, "Mummy, Tripp had 8 ounces!"...she doesn't miss a thing! She was so excited about the whole event she told everyone we saw that day that she fed her baby brother....sooo cute.

LOVE it! It seems that girls always take a liking to feeding & changing babies! My niece is that way. She ALWAYS' wants to hold them & they don't want any part of it, they want to do it all by themselves. It just gets SO much better! hehee! Elsie you are an AWESOME big sister!

Love, Cathy & the quads
