Cricket has been dying to retake this photo (above left) since we found out last summer we had another baby on the way. She finally got her wish last week. Everyone was randomly coordinated the other day, so I grabbed my camera and assembled them on the screen porch. We had neither the same clothes nor the same house, plus one additional human; we had to make some adjustments. There was much controversy over Nora's new position, since Piper would be "playing Nora." Where should Nora sit? Which girl should Daddy be kissing? But I think it turned out pretty well in the end.
We also tried to recreate the hand shot (below left) from the same sitting. It quickly devolved into little hands smacking each other, but here's one non-smacking version.
Jeff and I still keep looking at each other and saying, "We have three kids!" How did we ever get so lucky?
