Pinky and Thumb

Oh my gosh! This was -- I don't know -- the funniest/cutest/strangest/sweetest thing I think that I ever did see! This morning Owen was holding Meera on the couch. He somehow managed to figure out how to hold her up with just his right arm so that he could get his thumb into his mouth (he's lefty and sucks his left thumb). He was sucking his thumb and Meera started to fuss. Next thing I knew he was sucking his thumb and had put his pinky finger into her mouth and she was sucking his pinky. The two of them sat like this for a solid 5 minutes --- happily and contentedly.

Necessity is the mother of invention. I guess they both needed a finger, heh!! Very cute. Def one for the baby books.

Laura--
My gift for Braydon for Father's Day this year was Baby Meera! ;)
In all seriousness... that sort of was it! I was still in full recovery mode from the c-section, the baby was still so tiny, K & O were in transition full tilt, we were EXHAUSTED, etc.! We didn't do anything specifically for father's day or give any material gifts. I did give him a rain check, though. The deal is that as soon as the dust settles enough here he'll get a delayed Father's Day gift from me-- his favorite summer dinner made by me: Tuna Nicoise salad with french vinagrette, crusty bread, and good white wine.

that is truly amazing!!!!!!! Too cute, and I love your new blog Photo!
Also, I wanted to thank you for mentioning in a way earlier post about using aquafor on the boys' faces. It works amazing on Jonas, and it just makes his skin glow. I use it on his hand, feet, and ankles too! I would love to start twisting his hair, but I am trying to eliminate the bald spot on the back of his head first! :-) Your family is beautiful!
