little sister

Talias first meeting with Alice didnt really mean to much to her – she just wanted me to put her back into the hospital bed and let her sit and watch play school in peace. The last few days however, Talis interest in her little sister has increased somewhat. Yesterday was the first day that […]

Beauty Queen

Alice just got back from having her first xrays done at the hospital. She was the tinest person that the three xray people had ever done an xray on and they were back and forth from the little room to see the pictures as they came up. She did a great job – screamed her […]
