So Big

When did my babies get so big? Today Eliza Claire woke up from her nap not feeling well and fussy. Ruby went with me to get her up. While I was sitting in the rocker comforting Eliza Claire, Ruby crawled over to Eliza Claire's crib and got her lovie and brought it to Eliza Claire. Then she crawled back to Eliza Claire's crib and got her paci and brought it to her. Then she crawled back over and got her blankie and brought it to her!

When did they get big enough to understand this much and do this much? What an empathetic little girl Ruby is. Hopefully Eliza Claire will feel better soon.

That is just about the sweetest "sister" story I have ever heard. Really very touching. Thanks for sharing!

Did you ask Ruby to get those things, or did she do it on her own? Either way, it was very sweet.

Sorry to hear that Eliza has an ear infection, but glad that you decided to take her to doctor.

Hope she is feeling better today.

How precious is that! I think we don't often give kids enough credit for just how in tune they are with everyone and everything around them. Clearly the sisterly relationship here is very strong. Big hugs to Ruby for taking such good care of Eliza Claire!!

That is the sweetest story. They grow up so fast, we blink and they are bigger.
I hope Eliza is feeling better.

Well, they're twins, of course Ruby would take care of her sissy! If it were Rhem...forget it! ;)

Hope Eliza Claire is feeling better. <3

How sweet! I think people underestimate what children at that age understand, especially twins. I hope that Eliza Claire is feeling better.
