It’s time to introduce you to the deputy.

Here she is. Hope you like her. We all love her very much. 

 

The following photos were not staged.

 

Baby E the Deputy is like her father in many ways. She has blue eyes!

 

 

Perfect for spending a lot of time staring out the window.

At one week. Thanks Mor-Far for the beautiful tunic!

 

She has a bald head.

Tiyo holding baby E for the first time! Also at one week. Thanks Barry for the awesome tie-dyed authentic Berkeley t-shirts.

 

She finds the Field Commander both amusing and demanding.

(Tiyo wears a knit toque from Aaron and Chelsea; pink pyjama top that says, ‘Tiaras make you taller!’ (a hand-me-down from Rivkah, Kyle, Una and Isa); gray shorts from Viola, our landlady; and camo rain boots (on the wrong feet) from the consignment store, with sparkles for added appeal. Ready to go to school.
In the background, Evla’s newborn baby hammock, which she hates. Handmade by mom.)Whenever possible, she copes with chaos by retreating into a world of her own making.

(Mama and Papa are chatting in the kitchen. Baby asleep on mama’s shoulder.
Enter Tiyo, carrying the metal bowl in the background: “Baby! Baby! Baby! Put in baby!”
He’s got a good memory, that kid. But his sense of proportion is maybe a little off.)
Thanks to cousin Lynn for the beautiful hand-knit blanket on whose silken fibers Evla sleeps through (almost) every meal time. Thanks Mimi for the Moose socks and June and Kally for painting the onesie!

 

She has the same smile…

And she loves cuddles!

Though sometimes her brother enjoys them a little more…
