a good question and a good answer - Ivar asked me just now, "Mom, why do we have finger nails?" And I tried to answer about how it is helpful to have a little hard thing to get batteries out ...

Svea is 6 months old!
My goodness, the past 6 months have flown by! Having a newborn and a kindergartner makes a parent very aware of the passing months! Svea continues to be so very sweet and cuddly. She is happy to be admired and passed around at church and brightens everyone's day. Recently we received a beautiful alphabet cross-stitch wall hanging with Svea's name and birth date made by Mara and Sonna's preschool teacher. Teacher Carol wrote "Dear delightful Svea, You bring happiness to those who know you, just by being here and being you". I think those are lovely words. Svea is learning to sit up and examine things closely, continues to love her hands and toes, her sisters and nursing. She saves her best smiles for me (I may be biased here!) and her spirit of peaceful contentment is a joy to behold. On Saturday we went out for Chinese food and according to the Chinese symbols/animals, Svea and her Daddy are "compatible". Jedd announced this proudly. He already knew that! We are so thankful that Svea hasn't had any kidney infections and takes her antibiotic pretty well. (She doesn't like the taste of it at all - I finally tried it and it is nasty!) We love you, Svea! Happy Half Year!
