My Twins and Their Fifth Wheel






These pictures describe the story of our photo session today. I dressed the babies in their new "Nana Outfits" and set them up on the floor. I went to get my camera and when I came back, I noticed Digory meandering over from where he was taking his nap. He then proceeded to plant himself as close to them as he could (see picture number four) and right smack in the middle of my portrait. I didn't have the heart to shove him out of the way so, here he is. But it illustrates the saga of his life at the moment-- clammoring to remain the baby of the family, but recognizing that he is now number seven and down at the bottom of the totem poll. He does, however, LOVE the kids and especially the babies. They grab a fistfull of his fur and he never even flinches-- just enjoys the attention even if it comes with a bit of pain. (notice Digory is resting his head on Olivia's leg in the last picture - so sweet.)

The twins are SO adorable! They look like they're doing just wonderfully. And their 5th wheel is the cutest thing, too. I'm glad he is adjusting to the new children.

Thank you for writing this blog so that we can keep up with how you're all doing and continue to pray for you all!

Okay, to be honest I thought you had bought the twins one of those motorized cars or something when I heard 5th wheel but I bet Digory will be much more fun and safer! They seriously can not get any cuter! I love their little open mouth smiles.
