Little E

Little Lenichka.

Here are some pictures of our daughter. I still can't believe the Lord sent her to us. She is a lovely baby and adds a sweetness to the feeling in our home. It is amazing how different each child can be. Sometimes, C will be running through the house and he'll stop to put his face down near her feet. He will laugh gleefully when she moves, especially if she kicks him. I'll then ask him to do something and he will turn and say, "no" and then go back to his running. All the while, she is just looking around calmly as if to say, "I am content and I'm going to stay that way." I added the last picture of her in the middle of a cry for Joe. It reminds me of some of his classic baby faces . . . and even later-in-life faces. :)








She was 7.2 lbs. and very tired. She opens her eyes a lot more now.

Rachel! She is absolutely the sweetest thing I have ever seen. I have to agree that her crying face does resemble one of Joe's many. And Caleb's "What?" face does too. Joe may have some competition not too soon...

Caleb and Lena are me, reincarnated. It's not really fair, I haven't even died yet.

Looooove all those pictures! Thank you! All I can say to Liz and Joe's comments are 555...rach, you can ask me what that means later!

Oh my goodness, SO precious! I'm glad you finally posted pictures. Joe should die so there can be more cute reincarnations of him. Sorry, Joe, but it's for the best.
