day one.

the apartment looks like a warzone.
we're drowning in binkies (fox)/pacifiers (indie).
our hot water is off (!!!).
even our dog has bags under his eyes.
but there is a lot of sweet love up in here.
xoxo.

seriously made me teary eyed. just a touching video. i think my harmonies are out of control. i love baby sisters. lots of love.

hilary said...

oh, that video is so precious. it made me very sad that we don't live in the same state, though. but i think foxman handled it pretty well. some kids don't even acknowledge a younger sibling. so sweet to hear him say indie and that was so fun to see her on video footage. keep it coming.

Jill said...

yep. crying over here. that is soooo sweet when fox first looks at indie. and her sneezing at the end? stick a fork in me.

jill said...

love it!

noelle said...

oh yeah. teared up pretty much instantly. sweet love for sure.

Melanie said...

oh my goodness, that's sweet. What a good idea to caprute it on video.

Indiana is a beauty. You all are. How we love the Burtons.

Julia said...

That is darling. Congratulations again!

Net said...

Congratulations!!
I love that you differentiate between binkies and pacifiers. Wish we'd thought of that. May have spared Hyrum some grief.

Kathryn said...

We watched it together & loved it.

Add this to the agenda: Erin teaches Kathryn how to make movies. It's about time.

Abbie said...

aw, I'm a little weepy. Baby one meeting baby two is one of my best memories.

And the war zone, and the wear of just undies. no clothes of us after Audrie was born. May in Texas + nursing, too tired momma. I was naked time all day.
