In love...

We've been delighted with how each of the "big" kids has welcomed their newest sister into the fold over the past few weeks. They coo at her and beg to hold her and kiss her until we make them stop! Elise is really over the moon about the idea of having a sister - it seems like she still can't quite believe it. Caleb is so sweet and doting and quietly sings her songs and poems when she's in his arms. Lucas just can't help himself and regularly sneaks away to look at her, nuzzle her and sometimes lick her...the other day after he was admiring her nose to nose, he jumped off the bed and announced "baby lick mine boogies" - now isn't that the sweetest thing you've heard today?!?! Considering he used my stomach as a trampoline for the better part of the last 9 months, I think Eden probably knew this was just how life on the outside was going to be!
Lucas insisted on sleeping with Eden on her first day home with us!
