Big Days!

A brief update, mostly in pictures, of life around here since L's arrival.

O. and N. are still really excited about and interested in their little brother.

They feel a need to look at him up close often to check whether his eyes are open or closed,
hug him every time they leave a room he is in, and enjoy holding him.

That is, until he starts crying.

They want to have their picture taken with L. all the time.
This particular shot was after school last week.
It was Red Day for N. We are happy to report she seems to LIKE PRESCHOOL.
Tomorrow, though, L. and Mommy have to drop her off
for the first time since the first day of school.
We'll see how that goes.

I have pretty much lost possession of my cameras.
O. wants to take pictures of L. in every mood and activity.

But every time I upload photos from the camera, I also get a few like this.
Who knows what I'm going to find on my Flip video camera...

The Browns beat the Bengals! And we were all outfitted properly to support the team.

We went on an outing in the car! All three across in Daddy's Cherokee.
Mommy couldn't really get a good angle for the photo.
O. is playing with Mighty Beans, a treasured big brother gift.

Where did we go on our first outing, of all places? For N.'s first haircut!
She got to watch Little Mermaid and sit in the pink car.
Unfortunately, since we were just doing a bang trim and taking a teensy bit off the ends, she didn't even get to the part where Ariel arrives.
Had to promise her to check it out of the library this week. N. sat super still and was smiley through the whole event. Guess that's what happens when you wait until you're three for your first haircut!!

I love the one of the Small World Browns Fans. Adorable! And thank goodness for haircut places with seats in the shape of fun objects and Disney movies for distraction! =>

Looks like everyone is doing great! Bub looked at all these pictures with me and was especially impressed with O's dinosaur tableau. Please pass that along.

L looks so, so sweet!

I love seeing the pictures of the big brother and sister holding their new little brother. So sweet!

We haven't attempted a haircut for Sophie yet. Partly because I'm cheap and partly because I'm afraid of how it will go. I don't see her sitting and smiling so cheerfully like N.

Glad to hear that things are going so well. Keep the pictures coming!!
