Mommy in training



Annalia has taken to her new sister very well.  She loves her, hugs her, can't get enough of her.  (we will ignore the fact that she bit her foot this morning, I think she was just curious to see what would happen.  Needless to say, Naomi did not like that wake-up call).  

However, with the new baby, comes baby things, and Annalia has become quite the mother to her little Elmo.  She insists on giving him a bath often.  Although, I don't think washing him in Aslan's drinking water should count as "clean".  She also gives him "leche".  And she is a modest girl while she nurses, insisting there is a blanket to cover up with.  And she loves to carry him around in the sling.  After many times of fitting Mommy's big ring sling around her, we made her a small one, just for Elmo and Mommy Annalia.

It's so fun to read about your adorable kids! I can't believe how big Annalia is now- she looks just like you too! Belated congrats on the beautiful new addition to the family.

Marianna hasn't tried to nusre, but she does like to play with the "food maker" (the pump). It is fun to watch them grow up in such a tender way. Let us know when we can come for a visit!!
