Ian is a very loving brother. He fights with Madeleine plenty, but he's super sweet to Alayna. Possibly not always as gentle as we would hope, but he loves her to pieces. Here he was trying to help her be still so I could get a better picture.

Alayna recently had her first experience with swings at the park and she was not disappointed. She has been a bit on the grouchy side lately. I'll go ahead and say that's because she is cutting 3 teeth right now. (She already has 4.) That's probably a good enough excuse, right? Well despite all that, she was all smiles in the swing.

I know I have already posted this picture before. That time it was meant for you to see how nicely we were able to hide Madeleine's self-inflicted bad haircut with her hair parted just right. This time, I want you to notice the ottoman just behind her. What you don't see is that, sadly, the leather was beginning to tear and in the months since we took this picture, the tears got really big and embarrassing. Since we didn't have room in our budget to buy something new the rips just got worse and worse. I'll blame it on having a three-baby brain that it took me this long to realize I could just cover it with upholstery fabric and give it new life. Truth be told, I thought of making a slipcover but my friend Nicole helped me to see how much better and easier it would be to just staple the fabric in place. That Nicole is one smart lady!
Remember this table? Here's the finished product:
