I'm amazed at the maternal instinct that God gives to little girls. It's so precious to see Abby care for her baby doll and her brother Enoch. I've carried Enoch around in a sling and Elijah came up with the idea to make Abby her own sling for her baby doll which she calls Enoch. We used a towel and a chip clip to hold it together. There are also days that she really enjoys helping with housework. I've been encouraging her to learn how to do the laundry, wash dishes, etc. because someday God might give her a family and home of her own. She'll need to know how to take care of them. I pray that she is learning how to care tenderly for babies and children and that some day God will bless her with her own family to care for.

Enoch's doing well eating baby food. Abby really enjoys feeding him, which has been very helpful. I've also given him huge pieces of vegetables to chew on that he couldn't choke on. He gets the flavor of the vegetables and it feels good on his gums.
