|This is usually what happens when I try to take pictures of her!|

Sunday night I was making our bed while Jim was supervising bath play time. I heard her tell him, "some mamas love one child more than they love the other." He asked her why she said that and she told him because some mamas yell at one of their kids but not the other. I was practically in tears. I know she's had moments where she thinks everyone is over the moon for Lulu and she's been pushed aside a bit. He asked her if she thought I felt that way and she said, "no, but some mamas do." When I took over in the tub we talked about how babies don't get into trouble and when she's 6 and Lu is 3 Lucy will be get in trouble SO much more than she does. Then at 11 and 14 it will be Stella's turn again, and at 14 and 17 we're all in serious trouble! She was laughing and I told her that she and her sister were my two favorite people in the ENTIRE world (which she couldn't quite believe and made her smile) and that she was the answer to the prayer that I had prayed for SO many years. I think that she felt it, I pray that she felt it.
I know that she's growing up and trying to figure things out. She's becoming more independent. She's learning about life. I just pray for the patience and guidance to best know how to help her through the frustrating times.
