Yippeeee!!!!! I finally decided that if I just make a huge effort to clear the postpartum fog, remain focused for about 5 minutes, and think real hard where the most likely place would be that the camera case would have gone missing, I was sure that I would find it. Lo and behold, I followed this recipe to a "T" and found the case between the head of my bed and the wall within 5 minutes (added bonus: I found most of my 3 y.o.'s library books that were due yesterday). The battery is now charged and my finger is twitching in anticipation of taking pictures! Here we go:
Here's Isabella, a couple weeks ago, in her little teddy bear suit my sister and her family gave her for a baby gift.
Here she is today...notice her little chipmunk cheeks? I finally pulled out the Baby Bjorn because she loves being held and I love holding her. However, I really can't get anything done here with only about a half functioning takes about 1 1/2 arms to hold her.
Fresh out of the tub..the proud and loving (most of the time) big sister!!!
Another proud and loving (all of the time) big sister. She stole the Baby Bjorn right off my back (not literally)..she loves holding babies and especially in this carrier!
...and again!

Oooh, I know what you mean about just trying to focus for 5 minutes. Really, that's all you need to lay your hands on whatever's been missing for the past 2 weeks.

Oh, fun! That would be a fun picture to see with a baby on each side (front and back)! Isn't it so fun to see especially the older kids bond so strongly with the little ones? THat in itself can make it so worth it, although of course it is just worth it anyway!!! Each time we have a baby I just marvel at the changes that have taken place from the one before...each child is that much older and so much more involved. Of course, the most marked difference each time is with my oldest. She does more and more, and is more qualified each time to more and more. Even from our last one to this baby, Holli went from 7, almost 8 to 10, almost 11. That's a huge difference in maturity and capability!

Hooray! I love finding things (well things I was looking for, anyways).
