    Sigh. Love them all! I’ve been learning so much about Sibling Bonding this week, too! I hope I can make an easy transition for Sasha when baby brother Spencer is born in January.

    Such sweet, sweet pictures – I can’t wait for Kieran to meet his sibling Earth-side :)

  4. Lauren @ Hobo Mama & NPN  

    These are so special! I especially feel all gooey inside at seeing the significantly older siblings with the newborns. Makes me happy to think of the next generation growing up so nurturing.

    These are so SO sweet! I hope our family gets to experience moments like these someday. =)
