Little mother

For her third birthday, Lily received a Baby Annabel doll from her Uncle Greg and Auntie Kelly. Since the arrival of her little sister, Lily has renamed the doll the Baby Emma and loves to play at being a mummy. It can be a useful diversion sometimes as Lily loves to help out with Emma and there are just some things she can't do. We've had a few tears as Lily really loves Emma and wants to do everything for her. When this happens we suggest that she does the same thing with her doll that I am doing for Emma and very often this is enough to pacify her. The Podlings' interest in Emma keeps me ever vigilant, but I am so glad that they love her and don't seem jealous.
