this is what I've been doing
the last few days. Max made his entrance to the big wide world on Thursday morning. Perfectly healthy, by the way, and thank you Lord. The MOTH and I have been staying with Max's big sister, Sophia. She is the best little thing. Playing in her own little world, stopping to pick up a book and holding up her arms for a cuddle and a read. She is not the least impressed by this brother buisness. Not really acknowledging him at all. On the premise that if you ignore it, it will go away I guess. She does like all the balloons that came with him tho. While we were playing today, I tied her rainbow playsilk around her neck like a cape and she toddled all around the house. Her daddy snapped this picture of her with one of Max's balloons. I think it is my all-time favorite picture of her.
In typical fashion, Max has turned the house topsy-turvy. But no one is really worried about it. We are all just wallowing in the new baby smell, the sighs, and the tiny little mouth wide open in a yawn. And when we aren't doing that, we are reading to Sophia, blowing bubbles, and just stopping for cuddles and catnaps on the couch.
