Thursday we had an unexpected snow day AND three healthy kids for the first time in a long time, so I seized the moment (and a lull in the storm) to take the kids to meet their newest cousin!
My kids were charmed. They were beyond thrilled to hold him, and Emma even got to help feed him a bottle!
Johnny was particularly impressed by Baby S’s “teeny little ears”. He brought an entire stack of drawings to show to the newest boy in the family!
I love Baby S’s expression in this photo. It’s almost as if he’s asking, “Mom, are you sure this particular cousin is old enough to hold me?” Lily did great, with help – and talked about Baby S for a good half hour before falling asleep. She was particularly fascinated by his “teeny tiny hands”, and the little duck faces on the feet of his sleeper! =)
As for our baby, we had an ultrasound yesterday, that showed a healthy, very active baby. A baby set on staying in a particular position – for an hour and a half! Not the position the ultrasound technician needed for a fair number of the images they wanted. So we’ll be back to finish the ultrasound on Monday, when hopefully we’ll also find out the gender!
