Evolution of a Sibling Pic

I have a new daughter. And, as you may have noticed, I have a new blog banner picture, depicting four smiling children, all looking in the general vicinity of the camera. What can I say? Sometimes I just luck out.

We got t-shirts for the kids while we were in China. Emerson's says "Made in China", Dane and Aidan's say "ge ge", which means "older brother", and Harper's is little sister "mei mei".

Our little photo shoot did not start out well. Aidan had just gotten in trouble, and I was trying to convince myself that all four children would fit easily on our big chair.

And Harper?

The mei mei was not in the picture taking mood, much to the delight of her new big sister.

I had slightly better luck when we moved the kids to the loveseat, and kept the mei mei occupied with a book in her hands.
I can't stop staring at the forty toes.

Have I mentioned that Emerson is just full of personality?

After Aidan had lost interest in all the picture-taking, Harper got to know her new sister a little bit better

...and Dane helped teach her how to "touch nice". Poor Emerson looks a little freaked out here.
I have a feeling there will be many more "loveseat pictures" in our future.
