The perfect fit.

There's not much else to say about this. She is the perfect fit.
Shirley's growing up, whether we like it or not.
But she will always be our little baby bird.

Our nightly ritual of reading to Shirley will only get more interesting as Rosa gets older. I'll be interested to see how many books we'll be reading, each evening, in a year or two....I'm guessing 10 or more.

One of my favorite rituals at the moment is our Saturday morning breakfasts together. My dad use to, and probably still does, make the standard bacon, eggs and toast that always hit the spot. I can only hope mine does his justice and at least hold the same kind of memories for Shirley and Rosa.

Welcome little Sister Rosa!

Welcome Shirley's little sister, Rosa Simone Abigador Pearson.
Only a day old and already best of friends.

Get ready... ...Here we go again.

Shirley could be a big sister any day now. 
She's soooo excited, just like mommy and daddy.

It's hard to believe that it's been that long.

Mommy is the best!

Shirley's mommy is so awesome! Daddy and Shirley are thankful for everything she does.

Greetings from Karsey Street.

Shirley would like to say "Hi" to all of her friends and family, and hopes everyone is as happy as she has been lately. We took advantage of the mild winter weather this past weekend and spent some time in the backyard, picking up and playing.
Shirley would also like you to know that she's discovered the therapeutic power of bubble wrap dancing, and that we should all do this more often...

"One, Two, Three, Hoken, Hoken, Hoken"

Thanks for being patient with us. We've been hibernating, anxiously awaiting the arrival of our new family member. Shirley is very excited about being a big least we think she is. It's hard enough as it is to post here regularly, let alone keep up with another baby blog. Most likely they will share this blog the same way they will be sharing a bedroom. We'll see how all of that works out. 

Oh yeah... the post title today is what Shirley still says when she counts past three. Even though she knows how to count further, she still insists on adding the "hoken, hoken, hoken". Maybe someday she'll shed some light on what hoken is. 
Shirley and her Mommy.
