There's no denying it, Esther is most definitely not our baby anymore. Making this tunic reminded me how big and grown-up I felt Freya was when I made her a dress from the same pattern
a couple of years ago. I'm starting to understand that thing they say about second children
never really growing up in their parent's mind. It's something we've got
to watch out for, I know - to see Esther as she really is, right now - not just in relation to her older sister or to our own sense of her
as the "baby".
