Maggie & Ben

Ben is now a little over a week old and we are loving being the parents of TWO kids. Fortunately, Maggie has continued to enjoy her little brother, termed "Baby Ben." Other than continuously trying to steal his pacifiers, she has been nothing but affectionate. In the mornings and after naps, she immediately asks where he is and goes off in search of him (usually found sleeping in Mommy and Daddy's room). "Baby Ben!! Nap!!" She'll already fetch hats, diapers, and blankets for him as well (whether he needs them or not). Hopefully this sibling love continues for years to come!




Here she is singing him a song, probably from her favorite VeggieTales video, although we weren't quite sure of the melody. Ben, duly impressed with his sister's musical skills, is yawning in his carseat."Napping" with her baby brother.

So sweet! Is she trying to nurse any of her dollies while Rachel feeds Ben? Thanks for posting so many pictures, it's wonderful to see snippets of your life. The pattern on your couch is the pattern of the couch we had over on Brewer.......it's odd that you have it in Kenya. Nana
