Our growing baby is getting bigger by the day. And she knows it and she’s proud of it.
The extended wingspan also means that it’s easier for her to hit her big sister. Which Chloe doesn’t appreciate in the least. But Chloe still hasn’t figured it out – she still strikes back, even after we’ve repeatedly berated her for succumbing to Sophie’s taunts. Perhaps she’ll get it by the time she ships off to college, but it’s not looking particularly promising. I’m fairly confident, however, that by the time she has children of her own, she’ll understand perfectly. And look back on her days as an 8-year old with a newfound admiration for her parents’ child rearing skills. OK, that may be a pipe dream on my part, but something has to keep us going everyday!
