My Baby Sister

Most of you reading this know I have a not so baby, baby sister. She is now twelve and we unfortunately don't get to see each other nearly enough since we live eight hours away from her. After several conversations with parents, figuring out logistics, and a quick trip MI, we were able to bring my sister to Buffalo. She has been staying with us for the last week and will be here until Friday when we leave for Muskegon.

We have really enjoyed her being around and I am going to miss her when she goes home. We've learned it is difficult to find activities to entertain a 12 year old that a one year old will also enjoy, but we've been doing our best.

Levi has enjoyed her too, although I have noticed some jealousy from him. He didn't like it when Bethany sat on my lap. He climbed on top of me, squeezing between the two of us, then pushing her away from me. He has also been extremely clingy to me and has started throwing full blown temper tantrums, which most likely has nothing to do with her- she just happened to be here when it all started. (lucky for her)

I am enjoying getting to know more about my sister- understanding her likes and dislikes and what she enjoys- and hopefully she is having a bit of fun.
