Annie looks like she wants to eat the baby.

Lol! I was thinking the same thing. Annie is an adorable little cannibal.

But can I give some assvice?
I am not sure if Annie regularly sits in a “W” position like that, or if it’s a rare, once-in-a-while thing, but if it’s a regular occurrence you might want to get her to put her feet out front, or criss-cross. My daughter does that too (it’s usually a sign of hyper-flexible joints, which she, in particular, has because she has slight hypotonia) and while I was initially somewhat dismissive of all the people who told me I should correct her, I now see why: The position tends to internally rotate the hips, so she now walks with her feet rotated inwards, and she might need some physical or occupational therapy to correct that….
Sorry if I’m overstepping — just thought I’d let you know, because many people are not aware that this is not a very good thing…

I miss them both immensely!! Miss you and Jen too!

Lovely. Annie is really taking her in, not quite sure, is she?
It’s when I write something like the above that I realise Northern Ireland English might not translate clearly to any other type of English.

Precious! Annie is beyond cute! Did she see you hold the baby? What did she think about that, I wonder?

@katherine, I have no idea what the science behind that is, but it made me smile, because my father made it his life crusade to keep us from sitting like that. He called it “the dreaded W.” (alliterative when spoken aloud.) We both persisted and didn’t have any trouble walking, but that’s not much in the way of evidence, I know.
It sure is cute, either way.

She was looking at the baby and thinking “can I eat him?” , anyway thanks for the post they are both cute I sure do love kids that makes me smile.

I don’t typically disagree w/other comments, but sitting like a “W” is perfectly fine. I only know this b/c my oldest was born with DDH (ie, hip dysplasia) Her ortho said its perfectly fine to sit either “w” or criss cross. Some kids its uncomfortable to sit – depends on how their hips rotate, but it won’t harm them.

She is too cute!! She totally is sizing the baby up, hysterical.

My son sits in a W all the time. It’s his preferred sitting position. Drives my husband crazy – my husband who has knee problems and worries about the same thing happening to our kid.
