Don't forget...the baby?

So we've had family in town this week (hence not posting much).  They've been entertaining my two eldest and I've had some valuable time with New Baby.  Well, today, I've got the two eldest and they have New Baby.

And we're driving home from a nice lunch, both kids are over-tired.  Punky keeps looking next to her where New Baby should be.  She burst into tears.

"Mommy, you forgot the baby!" she wails.  "Go back and get the baby!"

I try to assure her that Grandma has the baby and she's taking good care of her.  "No she's not!" she continues to wail with HUGE crocodile tears.  "Go back and get her, Mommy.  You forgot the baby!"

Needless to say, I don't think I have to worry about her actually running away any time soon.  Seems to me like she's pretty attached now.

How precious. I am glad you have had the opportunity to spend quality time with both the new baby and the older two. It is such a blessing.

That is precious... everything is so deeply felt at that age, and it's really special.

That is sweet and sad at the same time.
