Size Matters

Shortly after Clare was born, 3-year-old Mary Autumn studied her in Mama's arms and asked, "What size is she?"

It soon became clear that Mary Autumn expected to GROW bigger as soon as the baby arrived. She had heard she would become the BIG sister, and in her mind that meant growing bigger like her older sisters Gianna and Anna Mae. Mama explained that she was the big sister because Clare was so little.

It may take a few days for Mary Autumn to digest this information and truly arrive at big sister status. She needs to study the situation a little longer.
