A Ponytail

Blanche is 7 weeks old yesterday. After her bath I thought I'd give a ponytail a try. She has lots of hair and I managed to pull together a little one of the top of her head. I was so excited I had to take some pictures. Getting out the camera meant BG had to get in on the action too. It's a little hard to see since her hair is dark and they are against a dark background, but that little white thing on top of her head is an elastic.

Blanche is fattening up. Her cheeks are getting heavier and more jowl-like. BG is a loving big sister. She helps a lot with getting me burp rags, binkies, etc. Yesterday I left them alone for a minute while I ran upstairs. When I came back down BG was putting Blanche back into her chair. I nearly had a heart attack and we had a discussion about who is allowed to pick up the baby. Three year olds don't make that list.

When Baby was a newborn, I came out of the shower one morning to find her preschool brother pushing her around in the doll stroller...Yikes! But she seemed content so I had a calm discussion with the Boy about how he needs to ask before moving Baby. And now that she follows him from room to room, he still asks before he moves her off her train tracks or away from his legos.
