Big Sister; Little Brother; Big Brother, Little Sister
No, I did not acquire two more children overnight! Cousins Grace and Max came to visit us this past weekend. I'm going to go ahead and admit it, Sarah and I were completely overwhelmed more than once with 4 children under the age of 3 in one house. And more than once, I declared my own mother absolutely CRAZY for having 3 children in 3 years. As I was holding Max and Juliet begged for me to pick her up, it hit me. John (my older brother) was actually 3 months YOUNGER than Juliet is when I was born. (Did you follow that?? There are 12 months and 11 days between us.)
