The Little Sister
For the longest time I have fielded the question "are they twins". Typically people know they are twins but it is a good opening line. Lately things have started to change. Instead I get "they aren't twins are they". When I say yes they then say "wow, "that one" is so much bigger". (Can I tell how rude I think it is to say "that one"... but people say it ALL THE TIME... anyway). I know Grace looks bigger but I didn't think she looked that much bigger.
So last week I put both girls on my Mom's scale. Grace weighed in at a whopping 36 pounds. Then we weighed Abs. I was shocked that she was still only 27 pounds. 10 pounds less than her twin sister! I couldn't believe the size difference is so huge. I knew when we got Abby's diagnosis that she would likely stay much smaller than Grace. I had no idea the difference would be so stark so early on.
**I thought the picture above really shows how different they are in size.
