One Home, Two To Go

Jason and I are so excited to have Ellery home. It may take some convincing for Quin to be excited though. The fact that Ellery is so small doesn’t help the matter. I’m not sure if Quin is connecting the idea that Ellery is alive, and fragile (she has a 'baby' doll that is about the same size as Ellery). She loved interacting with Ellery when she was on her lap, and tried to help with a few things. It is going to take some lessons on how to be gentle and nice before she can interact without an adult within a short arm distance away. Quin is a lover, but is a little rough. She was also not thrilled with the fact that Jason and I could not hold Ellery and help/hold her at the same time. This will be a life long lesson, I am sure! She will grow to love her. It should be interesting when Gianna and Easton come home :{ Thanks to everyone who emailed or commented with best wishes. Here are a few pictures from this evening:

Seriously - what a peanut! Yesterday we found out that they were not going to have us roll up towels to place around her. I am assuming that this is because the carseat if made for babies four pounds and up (opposed to most carseats that are made for five pounds and up).

Ellery getting some love from Quin - not sure how she feels about this though :)


Bottle Holder in training! It may take awhile, but we will get there.

Go Quin! She's going to be the best big sister ever (with a little time and practice). So glad she's home with you!

I am so happy for you all! She is beautiful and I love hearing how Quin is interacting with her. I am so happy that Ellery is hope with her family.
