|I did a quick photo shoot with Annika the other day. I added the big flower to capture the difference between the one month pics I took. For the record, she is 5 months.|
|Her brothers came in and were being silly trying to get her to smile. She loves them.|
|Then they wanted a picture with Annika. I didn't dress them up or comb their hair, just laid them on the bed and snapped some pics. I think this is one of the first I took. They love her.|
Levi has started telling everyone "Dis my sishter!" And "Where's my sishter?"
Annika, you are one loved baby girl. Your brothers all dote on you, tell you how beautiful you are and love to make you smile. They delight when you roll over, smile at them or giggle. You have added a new dimension to this house of boys, a really great dimension. I still look at you and think, "I have a girl! I can't believe it." Somehow, you have turned into a really perfect baby. You are just calm and content all the time. You rarely fuss in your car seat anymore. You love to be in your jumper thing and watch the action. You're content to swing while I fix dinner. When we grocery shop, I always carry you in the Ergo and you will often take a little cat nap. If we are going in somewhere quick with just a few things to get, I'll leave you in the car seat and you are content to sit in the cart and see the world. You enjoy facing out in the stroller. The last two days, I've laid you down wide awake for a morning nap and you haven't fussed, just fallen asleep. You wake up one or two times a night, you're pretty unpredictable. But, I love to get you and bring you into our bed where you nurse/sleep for about an hour and then I take you back to your bed. I won't complain when you do decide to sleep through the night, but I won't complain now either, I really like those snuggly times.
