Grace's little friend Sophia (~18 months) just got a new little brother.
Sophia is a mild-mannered child. She rarely throws a tantrum and is just all-around pleasant to be around. She's the baby in the nursery that I want Grace to watch and learn from. Or until this week, that is.
Sophia's not taking to the role of a big sister in a now-family-of-four so well. In fact, she does not want anything to do with her little brother.
This week, at the doctor's office after his check-up, her mom packed up new baby Elliot. Sophia looked directly at him. "Bye-bye Baby." she said. And she grabbed her mom's hand and headed for the door.
Her mom scooped her up while trying to stifle her laughter. "Sophia, I'm sorry honey, but we can't just leave him here."
