Baby Bonanza


And then there were three… Sophia Grace came into the world on March 11th. 25 hours later, her sweet sweet cousin Mikaila arrived. And two weeks ago, Eloise (aka “the blond princess” according to her proud papa Tynan) joined the tribe of cousins. I didn’t get my first cousin until I was 20, and I grew up envying my friends who had dozens of cousins in town or close by enough  join them for adventures of all sorts. So this serendipity of adorable baby-ness that now dominates the Pierce family totally blows my mind. Here’s some pics from the first “official” photo shoot of our girls in all their glory–from Sophia’s brow furrow to Mikaila’s kinetic energy to Eloise’s newborn floppiness. Love love love abounds…

    How precious–the three cousins begin to plot their adventures! And Mikaila pulls Sophia’s hair in a cosmic re-enactment of children over the generations. I recall Tynan pulling Jessica’s hair in the back seat of my car. Oh, the blood curdling screams! They still reverberate somewhere in the universe. Love to all of you on this glorious journey, Linda
