Em and Lizzie are only 2 months apart...

although you wouldn't know it by looking at them.

Em is a whole head taller than Lizzie...

You see, Em is baby CRAZY and had it in her head that she was getting a baby sister!!

Well, Lizzie is not a baby, but she definitely needed to be babyed for a while and is small enough to be picked up,

and lead to safety,

and taken care of by her big sister,

    Avery doesn't mind being 'babyed'....

    In the end, it all works out!!! (kind
