A year in the lives of Avery and Harper

I've been thinking a lot recently about something special I can do now that Harper is here.
I've decided that I'm going to take pictures of the girls each day so that I can document their first year together.
If all goes as planned, I'll have a nice memory book to print and share with them when they're older.
Here goes nothing:
Day 1:
Avery meets her little sister, Harper!

Day 2:
Avery holds baby Harper for the first time!

Day 3:
Avery introduces Harper to her new home!

Day 4: Avery gives Harper a big kiss and holds her hand during her first sponge bath!
