Meanwhile, Big Brother...

Lots of people have asked how Henry has responded to having a baby sister. The answer is that he's been fantastic. He loves to talk about her, tries to comfort her when she cries and helps us out by fetching things like burp cloths and blankets. He hasn't shown the first sign of being jealous--something were a little concerned about due to his Jesse Jackson-level love of the spotlight. He's also enjoyed spending time with all of his visiting relatives...

Picking blueberries in our backyard. (Technically, these are in our neighbor's yard, but I promise we have their permission.)

These made for some pretty good blueberry pancakes that night (breakfast for dinner FTW!)

This is obviously an intense game of "Toy Story-dinosaur-bumper-hockey," which requires protective headgear consisting of mini-Major League Baseball helmets. Duh.

While Claire gets her first ever bath at home, Henry comforts her by "reading" Mimi's Toes, a book we used to read to him during his first baths.

Group hug!

Great to see pics of the happy fam! Claire looks like she'll be a contender in the dinasaur battles pretty soon.
