Babies and Baas

My best friend had her first baby today, after 8 years of hard (and mostly unpleasant) trying. She is so very, very happy, as is her husband. And little AJ is absolutely perfect. I am thrilled for the whole family, and you'll just have to take my word for it that AJ is beautiful baby, since we haven't uploaded our pictures yet. Next week, hopefully, I'll be able to post a good picture of Ellie holding the baby. She was fabulous with AJ, and gently climbed up into the bed to snuggle with my tired but happy friend.

Instead, for Friday photoblogging, here are some shots of my own beautiful babies:

Here's Ada brushing Ellie's hair as we got dressed one morning. It's worth noting both that the room was tidy the night before, and also that Ellie fights when anyone else touches her hair with a brush.

Ada is a brave and independent girl . . . as long as she has a special "Baa" or two (or three) with her.

The joy of a new baby! They are so sweet . . . and before you know it you have a little tornadic toddler whose mission is destruction, running through the house, shouting "no" at all that doesnt work as they think it should (my son is letting his combines have it as I type, yelling "no, no Mr Fuzzypants") I love that he has the ability to express himself and at the same time, he makes me want to pull my hair out!

Awww! My girl has a thing about sheep as well, and her most favorite is also 'baa'. Love it! She looks so very serious.
