Is your family complete? Baby Harper

Baby Sister

Tiny beautiful Harper came in for her studio newborn session and we just couldn’t get enough of her! Her features are so delicate and she really looks like a baby doll. Baby Harper is baby number two for this sweet family. She is welcomed by her parents and her very happy big brother. Isn’t Harper’s big brother, Alex good at snuggling his new baby sister? He was so gentle and loving with her. It seems like these two will grow up together with the most wonderful bond and stories.

Having one of each gender is really a lot of fun and by many parents considered very lucky. When they have two children, a boy and a girl, some people may say that this family is now ‘complete’ because they have “one of each sex” and that they have “the perfect family”. As a result, some women get really annoyed by such comments, especially those who have same gender children. What’s worse, they often hear people ask them if they are going to try for another one, either a boy or a girl.


A study

First of all, I have two girls myself so I can relate to that. However, I decided that I’m happy with having just girls and my family feels perfect as it is. I got further reassured after I found out that having two daughters is the key to a happy and harmonious family life, according to a study. Researchers came to the conclusion after examining the lives of families with different combinations of children, both male and female. The results show of all the variations, two girls make for the most harmonious family life as they are unlikely to fight, will play nicely and are generally a pleasure to be around. It also emerged two girls rarely annoy their parents, make limited noise, often confide in their parents and are unlikely to wind each other up or ignore each other. By contrast, doubling the number of daughters is likely to lead to a whole world of pain, the report found.
