Birth Order

Fix and I are both the third of four siblings. We treasure having been born into the best spot in the birth order line-up. At brunch we asked John and Wesley (also third-of-fours) to pose for a picture to celebrate our superior status.
Then I thought it would be a good idea to make up a sign for our birth order. It is supposed to read "THIRD (three fingers) OF ("O" shape of the mouth) FOUR (four fingers)."But I was the only one who realized that you needed to flip your fingers so it would be able to be 'read' by the viewer. Sigh. Perhaps we are not as superior as I thought.
Of course, then everyone else had to get in on the birth-order fun. Here are the first-borns; Kate, Uncle Dan, Rock and Mommarama.
Nell and Rocket were the only second-of-fours in attendance.
Dinah, Susanna, and Valeta make a cute 4-of-4 team. They are also known as the "Babies."

I love this post! I loved seeing all of your family again. And I don't think I ever knew the birth order of your Dad's siblings, so that was fun!

I love how much fun Rock looks like he's having. And your hair looks gorgeous.

Don't you know-
1st is the worst
2nd is the best
3rd is the one with the hairy chest.
