a day in the life {the baby sister}

WARNING: This post may cause a strong urge to have a baby.

I love to watch her wake up. Baby yawns kill me.1009day-1

Big Brother likes to join her on the bed in the mornings. On this morning he relayed the story of my plane ride. I am now just as cool if not cooler than Indiana Jones in regards to adventure. It’s was fun to listen to how proud he was of me and how much watching me fly impacted him.1009day-2

Hanging out with her brothers in the morning…1009day-3

Nap time…and outfit #2.1009day-4

Nap time on the bed didn’t last long, she prefers that I hold her in the wrap. So we did a little crafting together.1009day-5

Enjoying a little afternoon lego play with Big Brother


Crying…and being comforted by tender hearted Big Brother1009day-10

Going for a walk…Littlest Brother pointing out her body parts. “mouth. nose. hair.”1009day-11

Back at home and enjoying the window view while sporting her ElleBow (see the link at the bottom of the page)…I love the handmade flower. (outfit #3)1009day-6

Getting a little mid-afternoon cuddle from Littlest Brother. Leg Warmers – my FAVORITE girl accessory.

I love how cute AND practical they are….and her chubby thighs are just too much in them!1009day-7

Falling asleep while I was trying to get some new pictures of her. Already bored with the camera.1009day-8

Finishing up the day in outfit #4 –ย  a dress made by my friend Lauren. She is shocked that I don’t enjoy washing all the clothes she spits up on or drools all over.1009day-12

I told her when she is bigger she has to do her own laundry.1009day-13

Her days are so different from Biggest Brother’s when he was a baby. Have I mentioned I love having a ‘big’ family? My cup overflows…so does my washing machine, dishwasher and trash cans ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Alba - I’m done with two little boys, but she is so cute. I would love to have a baby girl, but … there are so many “but” that I can not think about it. All the pictures are as fantastic as always, but the one with Big Brother is so tender!

  • Emily Beaty - She is SO cute and has already grown SO much! I love her accessories – the headband, leg warmers, hat… adorable. I also love how her brothers interact with her!

  • lesley - love this post! I really like the one where she’s big eyed with her mouth open and the leg warmers are so cute!!

  • amanda torres - Love the post! She is SO adorable and so thankful for you. Families are one of God’s greatest gifts to us.

  • Miranda - I love this post! It does make me want a baby, but that already existed before I looked at you blog. Little baby girls are SO sweet! I agree having a big family is awesome!!

  • meg duerksen - watching a birth…then a friend telling me of her shocking surprise pregnancy…now you post this. not cool. my womb can’t take it. my poor husband can’t listen to me whine about it anymore. we can’t have anymore. but that doesn’t stop me from wanting it really bad.
    she is doll.
    love the legwarmers. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • christina larsen - Absolutely precious.

  • Lisa - Everytime I see her I get that 2nd baby urge!!! Loving this blog post. What a life ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for the ElleBows link – I just adore that picture.

  • Shanalea - I am always amazed by how fast my washer and dishwasher fill up. I take one day off and poof 3 loads appear. I will say though I would rather have a full washer and a full house rather than an empty one.

  • ashlee - oh my she is a doll!!!

  • steph anne - Aww. You have beautiful kids! Are you planning on having more kids?

  • Juliann Brenner - You’re right – these pics do make me want to have another (would be #4)…but then there are the NIGHTS, which make that first year so hard for me….

  • Jill R - That IS the life! I would love for someone to dress me in cute outfits all day and have 3 adorable boys at my beck and call!

  • Jeannette Swan - It doesn’t take much to make me want another one!!! Well, except the thought of more laundry than I have now – yikes! My washer and dryer never stop, it’s a wonder they don’t over heat.
    She is beautiful!

  • Amnah - Oh my goodness… too cute!

  • carrie - Her lips are so kissable!!!!!

  • the inadvertent farmer - As a mom of 4 boys and 1 princess I must say those photos made my heart melt…Enjoy! Kim

  • Lauren Roberts - I love her in her dress! So sweet!

  • Lisa Johnson - oh my. This may just be my favorite post ever. What a sweetie!

  • kerry - i love the framed picture of the different sized shoes!
    so much love from the brothers to little sister, simply heart melting:D

  • Jolie - oh stop with all the gorgeousness…you know, you aren’t helping the baby fever around here, any!!! She just looks utterly divine!

  • jennifer - Love your blog and LOVE your photography!!!

    WHERE did you get the sling that you have your little one in??? Is it a moby wrap or like a moby wrap??? How do you like it??

    I have a 4 month old son, who is starting to prefer being held and I need something like that!!!!

    Thanks SO much!!

  • Mandy Metcalf - Oh my goodness she is such a doll! Such a photogenic little girl! Your family is beautiful! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • AshleyAnn - Jennifer…it is from Etsy, seller name is “Loveyduds”. I think it is a lot like a moby wrap…I love it, but now that she is getting bigger I might start trying a simple sling.

  • Amber Dearman - I love these pics!! My favorite is the one in the chair with the orange stocking cap and the leg warmers…darling!!!

  • Trina - Love it. Pls tell me where the legwarmers are from – fantastic! my daughter needs some!

  • AshleyAnn - Trina, the legwarmers are from Target. I think they were about $2.99!

  • Ellie - I love little firecracker. Even then she hinted on her spicey personality. I know that it has been a long while but do you remember where you found those lil’ leg warmers? I just love them. They are favorite baby girl accessory too!
