Jealous.

Maggie is this sweet pretty much all the time.  She's also the most compliant child I have ever known.  If you tell her "no" she stops what she is doing immediately.  Often, she gets her feelings hurt when she is told no and will start crying and want to be held.  (Which we do, happily)

She's also very jealous of the boys.  When Walker and Will sit in my lap, she starts crying, pitifully throws herself down on the floor and looks to see if my lap still holds another child in it besides her.  Maggie thinks I am her mother and no one else's !  Well, I know that being jealous is not the best thing to be, but I have to say I love that she sees me as her mom and doesn't want to share me.  And, I love to scoop her up and place her in my lap, telling her I love her.  The boys don't mind either.  How could they ? They love her so much and understand her need for attention right now.  She is definitely treasured and loved over and abundantly !

Oh she does have a sweet, sensitive spirit, doesn't she?? What a precious! My youngest, Joshua, was a jealous one too when I held his big brother on my lap, he would try to squeeze in as hard as he could and push Matthew out! Now he is fine with sharing the love.
By the way, I am always in love with the beautiful dresses you put on her!
