This was one of those moments where the sun and the stars align for a truly Kodak moment. I was much more lax in getting out birth announcements for A than for E. I am incredibly picky about pictures and feared there would be no way I was going to get a good picture of the two of them for A.'s announcement. Between a lucky moment with A. deciding to fall asleep in a room with great light, and my incredibly obedient E. who stayed perfectly quiet and relaxed so as not to wake the baby, I got my now-favorite picture of the two of them. They're a pretty pair.
So far my favorite part is watching them make each other smile. E. likes to tickle and kiss little A., and A. will gaze in complete awe of her big sister's expressive face. Lucky, lucky me.
