Emma and Afton




[It's taking me so long to post photos...these are about a month and a half old.]
It's great having a helpful and loving nine-year-old like Emma around. Her favorite thing to do these days is hold Afton (or sit on the floor by her to sing her little songs). I don't mind, not one bit. I'm all for encouraging such a strong sisterly affection, not to mention she's old enough to actually be really good at it. She can get her to sleep, she can soothe her fussing when I'm tied up. Go sisters.

Emma is growing into a beautiful girl in so many ways. Those pics are dear.

Long live big sisters! I don't know what I'd do without my Tal. She's a great fill-in when I need a hand.

(my word verification is cryono- "cry? oh, no!" Because big sisters help you not to be sad. How fitting)

How tender! I love these pictures. I can see there will be a deep and abiding love between them. Emma gets her tender, nurturing love from you Lori, you are wonderful and we love you so much!
