This week has been all about Baby Anna, who showed up on her Daddy’s birthday! She has us all wrapped around her tiny little finger.
Three-year-old Lily is proving an incredibly dedicated big sister! Yesterday she got up at 4:30am and stayed up, “helping” me take care of her (sleeping) baby sister…
Four-year-old Johnny was a little worried about the baby stealing all of his toys, but she won him over instantly! Once he saw her he decided “we should keep her” – and he has asked me several times not to give her back.
Six-year-old Emma is a very helpful, loving, and dedicated oldest sibling. This is Lily’s first time with a baby in the house, and Johnny’s first time being old enough to remember. Emma is the resident “baby expert”, and loves the authority that comes with her expertise.
We’re enjoying the final days of my parents and sister visiting – they fly home Tuesday morning. The kids have had many wonderful adventures with them, as well as my sister who lives nearby. They visited Georges Island, Old Sturbridge Village, Walden Pond, and picked blueberries (twice!) at Parlee Farms!
