So THIS Is What Heaven Is Like

I don't really know how Sophie survived her baby months without an older sibling to help her. Mommies just don't understand exactly how to take care of babies the way their big sisters do.

Last night, Sophie made sure to demonstrate how I am supposed to give puffs to her brother by dumping the entire bottle onto Will's tray. I love this picture - she is so proud, he is startled (and hoping this doesn't end), and look at his little hand - grasping as many puffs as he can!


Check out the sheer determination on that little face... and also note how widely he spreads his hands, making sure to take in every last puff possible.


Sophie just might have had an ulterior motive.

Cute pictures. Sister #2 had two older sisters. My parents didn't have do parenting at all with the her, Sister #1 and I did everything. HA!

Ah, yes. Will looks quite content with Sophie's help. Hope they continue to enjoy each others company.

Now you know the secret as to why mothers and grandmothers push food on everyone! We have an ulterior motive! Love the pics!
