Weekend Reading: April 20, 2013

Sweet Girl

It’s true — at three-and-a-half years old, I still call her Baby Girl and “the baby”, and a friend recently reminded me (as if the thought is ever far from my mind) that she will only be the baby for a few more months!

The rest of our babies were so close together (17-24 months) that no one ever really settled into the role of baby of the family, and I’m not sure exactly how this transition is going to go — for her OR me! It would probably help if we got her moved out of the nursery and into the big girls’ room, huh?
