>Apparently Georgie needed to see the doctor again. Luckily I didn’t have to load her up in the car again since this doctor makes house calls.
But Bailey really does seem to love her little sister. She wants to hold her a lot and she’s very sweet and gentle with her when she’s talking to her or touching her……using a soft voice or just lightly stroking her face. I mean we tell her that she has to be careful with GA, but she also just seems to intuitively know that she’s a fragile little baby and not one of her plastic babydolls. Good thing considering how she sometimes treats her babydolls! ha ha! And whenever GA is crying, Bailey makes sure we know. She runs up to us saying “Baby crying! Baby crying!” and wants us to fix it immediately. Or she tries to fix it herself by putting her finger to her lips and “Shussshing” Georgia. And one of the cutest things so far is that if anyone asks Bailey what the baby’s name is she’ll answer, “My baby” or “Catherine Bailey’s Baby”. Apparently Georgia doesn’t have a real name of her own. Bailey can also be a bit possessive of her little sis. There’s been a couple of occasions where someone wants to pick up GA and Bailey will hover over her and say “No! My baby”. I hope that protective nature always lasts. One more cute thing about their relationship- when we went on a walk last week Bailey went off and picked a flower for me (she often does this when we’re outside)- but this time she ran off again and got another one and handed it to me saying “baby, baby”. Definitely kept that little yellow flower for GA’s keepsake box. 🙂
I know it’s only been a month since GA entered our lives, but it feels like she’s been a part of our family forever. And luckily, Bailey seems to feel that way too. I love watching them together and I hope and pray that they grow up to be super close best friends. I’m just so happy they have each other!
