When families have their first baby, it's a magical time filled with a good bit of guesswork and learning that continues for a lifetime since, for the most part, your first will present you with new challenges as parents. However, having your second baby is a lot less scary thanks to your firstborn.
Newborn L is having a lot of firsts right now. She's getting to know her "big" sister, K, who loves to give her kisses and is learning what it means to be an older sibling and how to play nicely with the newest member of the family.
Soon enough, L will come to know the joys of the miniature size, bouncing gait and floppy ears of a dachshund named Bella. In the meantime, she can borrow K's life-sized plush animal verson of Bella from time to time. :-)
The combination of this adorable hat and a well-timed grin is priceless.
