Palette of Colors, Anchored Boat

Sisters Portrait Drawing

Lately my wife and I have been talking a lot about what it will be like to introduce a sibling to our son. We’re currently reading a book called The Birth Order by Dr. Kevin Leman, and I read that introducing a sibling is akin to the ‘dethronement’ of the first child!
