That is an interesting idea, that now that she's not calling her kiddo anymore means she sees her more as an equal friend than a little sister. I agree with csinynut that now that Lindsay is married and has a baby she's not the little sister anymore. I think it was the whole baby and marriage thing that maybe really changed their relationship so they're equal now. What I loved was that Lindsay once again showed her trust in Stella when they were at the hospital and Lindsay told her how she was really feeling and why she was so nervous. I think for a person like Lindsay speaking that out means a lot. And I love how Stella listened and told her she would be fine. This support was lovely.
