Just the other day, I wandered out of the kitchen where I was fixing dinner to find this. Maeve and Shadow together in in the dog's kennel. For a while I tried to coax them out but neither wanted to leave. Eventually I gave up and just started snapping photos, because quite honestly, I didn't have the heart to break up that scene myself.
It's amazing looking at these photos and wondering what happen to that infant? It seems like yesterday Maeve was a swaddled little bundle being poked and prodded at by her two big brothers. Now, apparently she has decided it's her turn to be the big sibling. Maeve calls Shadow around the house, orders him into the kennel with her, feeds him bits of food from her hand. I'm pretty sure Shadow thinks she's his big sister.
And look, she's even reading! What a big girl!
