I'm still not quite used to the idea that I have 3 girls (Ivy was 'supposed' to be a boy, remember?), but when I see them together, I can't help but smile. I'm not trying to leave Elijah out, his connection with Ivy is quite special on it's own. But this post is about sisters, and the love they share together (now, if only Maya would stop using Anya as a 'squeal button').

changing the strategy

Seems like I've been hoarding gigabytes of cute baby pictures for too long, telling myself that I need to find time to write meaningful posts to go with them. But I need to be more realistic and make peace with the idea that maybe at this time in my life posting pictures with a few words (or no words at all) is the best I can do. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words, right?

Oh yes, there's more to come!

loved by many...

... she is. every day. and her older sisters and brother are not too shy to express their love for Ivy both in actions and in words.

Sure, they don't exactly try to stay quiet when she's sleeping (couch in the living room is her favorite place for now. or wrapped on mama. in the middle of noise anyway), but that doesn't count. Because they do love her, and each one of them tells her that at least once a day, and smother her with hugs and kisses throughout the day. I heard some parents get annoyed at older children being all over the new baby. But I think nothing could bring me more joy these days than seeing our children expressing their love so freely and willingly. And yes, I do hold my breath for a few seconds when they are trying to kiss Ivy while she's sleeping. But annoyed? no.

What she's been up to...

snuggling, of course. What else would you expect from a tiny baby in a big world...
