I am proud of all three of our children. We have truly felt blessed to have our two girls and our little buddy! Emily is our middle child. She turned 9 in August and loves gymnastics, animals, and writing. She is a wonderful daughter and I still can't believe that she is mine! Although Lizzy is our oldest, Emily has all the characteristics of a first born.
The other night she asked me if she could feed Lizzy. I think I may have answered "I don't think so, Em." She started telling me that she was old enough, she wanted to help me, and that I should let her. Lizzy gets a feeding right before bed and has medicine in it. I wanted to be sure Lizzy got every bite. There is singing involved and I just didn't think that this control freak could risk it. Maybe another time.
I am so glad Emily was persistent. She SHOVED me into a #2 position and I loved it!

When she finished feeding Lizzy, Emily says to me "told ya mom." Yeah, I had that coming. Emily has been wanting to help with Lizzy in general but I've felt that she isn't ready. I am so proud of her. She fed her the exact same way that I do. Right down to the way I sit on the floor with her. I feed her on the floor because it is easier to just go where she is!
We are back in Hilton Head for oxygen therapy! We got here about 6:00 tonight. I'm so excited and can't wait to tell you all about it!
