I took this picture yesterday when Jack was carrying Finn to the basement to play. Not only is it a good photo of both boys (and I know there are several of you out there who particularly enjoy the pictures of Finn) but it also serves as an illustration of just how much a person's parenting practices evolve with the birth of more children. Kelly and I would never have allowed a 6-year-old to carry Aubrey around like this when she was 8 months old. But that was back when we were first-time parents still figuring out how to do things and worried that we always had to do them "right". By the time you get to your fourth child, you realize it often isn't about what's "right" but what's "easy." Finn was happy, Jack was happy, I was happy. Aren't families wonderful?
Have a happy weekend!
