    Blood On The Fleece - Baffled!

    I have two soon to be 7 month old girls. The little one is always bouncy and full of courage but the big one is typically more reserved, let's the little one test the waters before committing to anything. They had a bit of a disagreement a couple of weeks ago which sounded horrible but no...
