Triplets

The cousins posing in Vermont


Olivia has been telling us, for quite some time, that she wants a baby brother or sister. When we arrived in Vermont and she got a look a "Baby Zoey," she decided that she needs another sister so that she, Lila and the baby can be "triplets."

When Matt and I explained to her that we don't know if we'll ever have another baby, she began to cry and beg. Life is so simple for a five-year-old! Five-year-olds don't contemplate future deployments, illness or money.

She also hasn't considered that a baby would take up a lot of YOUR time, too. Definitely not a good idea to let your preschooler be in charge of family planning.

You just need to move closer so the cousins can play more often...
I have to admit they did play well together while here....

Three is a magic number, that is all I'm saying:)

That's so funny that she wants another sibling. Not only does Becca not want any more, she'd kind of like the one she does have to go back where he came from! :)
