Weekend Family Blogging

Lots of people ask how SteelyKid is taking to having a younger sibling. Well, judge for yourself:


This is during the Giants-Falcons playoff game this afternoon, but it’s pretty typical. When both SteelyKid and The Pip are home, she’s always running over to give him kisses and hugs and chatter at him. She’s super excited to be a big sister, and that hasn’t changed.

Better yet, a few minutes after that first picture, she looked like this:


And, in fact, she’s still snoring cutely. We’ll wake her up soonish, but for now, we’re enjoying the break from constant, exhausting motion.

Hope you and your loved ones are similarly cozy.

    Just how much she loves her brother: I offered to take her to the library, just the two of us, so we could spend some time together alone. When she realized that the Pip was going to stay home, she insisted that she wanted him and would not be dissuaded.

    My toddler approves of these pictures, with excited finger-pointing and audible if non-word comments. Heh.

    T., I hope we are not giving your toddler hopes that aren’t going to be met . . .
