When the baby becomes a big sister.....

Where do I even begin? Life has been a wonderfully sweet roller coaster that hasn't stopped since our new little girl, Exie Jo, has made her presence known in our family.

She was and still remains a wonderful little infant.

Today, Ruthie brought me to Exie Jo in her swing in the living room. I found her just like this.

Her outfit was unsnapped and her diaper was halfway off.

Ruthie proceeds to tell me,"Poop momma." So I bent down to take a whiff and sure enough, there was a filled diaper.

Whoever claims that breastfed babies don't have stinky diapers are not telling the complete truth. I can smell them and so can the other 3 mini-mommas that live in this house.

Ruthie left the room and came back with her cotton ball, alcohol, wipes, and a diaper. She was determined that she was going to change Exie's diaper.

But, I'm not quite ready for that just yet. So, Ruthie settled on changing her pig's pants.

And then I managed to steal a photo of Ruthie's new favorite face to make. How funny! She is one very animated little girl.

And this is one to grow on.

I haven't stopped by your blog in forever, but I'm so glad I did today! Congratulations on your sweet new baby girl. We had a baby girl (after 3 BOYS) this past October and I'm soaking her up. I love seeing all the girly-ness here. I LOVED the bedroom pictures you shared. AND... we are doing Classical Conversations this year, too. :) (Oh, and I can definitely smell the diapers around here, too. :)) Thanks for not giving up on your blog!
