One year ago on November 13, we arrived back in the US from our second trip to Ethiopia and Nick and Noah met Aliyah for the first time. When the boys woke up the next morning, they wanted to have their "baby sister" sit on their laps. I think they were little surprised that she wasn't really that much of a baby!
And now one year later, I would say the sibling bond is pretty strong. Aliyah copies Noah which drives him crazy, just the way that Noah has always copied Nick and driven him crazy. They all play and push each others buttons in only the way that siblings can.
I just asked Noah how he feels about Aliyah. He looked at me funny and said "She's my sister" in a "duh mom" kinda voice. That pretty much sums it up.

This was Aliyah's first Halloween and she loved all of it.
Grandma Kathy came over on Halloween night to pass out candy so that both Pete and I could take the kids trick or treating.
Half the people who saw Nick said "cool, fear the beard!" and the other half said, "Um, a Giants player with a beard?"
