For Her Aunties...

Well, nothing too exciting has happened.

Really, we think all firsts are exciting and we get the camera out to document.

Here is Sadie's first bath...




She did really well!


We are going to have pictures taken of Sadie tomorrow, so my mom and I tried on her outfit. Too cute! Thanks for the outfit Noonie and Papa Max!


Noonie trying to wake her up for "playtime"!




Daddy reading to the kids before bedtime. That's right folks, all three were asleep by 7:15 last night!


Owen and Cooper have been tremendous in this time of transition! They are so good at being gentle with her and taking care of her. This is one that Owen didn't want me to take, but it was too precious to miss. Sorry Owen!

Hope this is a "fix" for my sisters and the rest of our family who are missing these kids terribly! We love you and are so happy to share these blessings with you!

She is a doll!!!! Your dad said tonight that she is so hard to wake up, that he still hasn't seen her beautiful eyes, so I thought it funny you put that pic of Norma trying to wake Sadie up! :) Blake is such a good daddy, I am sure that little girl has him right around her finger! Also, we have the same sheets for Andrew, do you have the whole set from Target, if so we have a lot in common girl!!!

Laura said...

Thank you molly! Love the pics! Looks like you are settling in so well sweet girl! I love how Owen is just all over her, kissing her and wanting to be close. How sweet. I asked Max if he was going to tell his class that he has a new cousin...he said "No, because then they will want to see her!" What? Apparently, he's a little possessive! Can't wait to see the pictures you all have done today! Thanks for keeping this updated for us...

I love all of Owen's curls tickling her face! There will be no end to that soon. I can just picture the boys waking up so excited to see where she is and what she is doing! Don't you love that sleepy, limp, "I don't care" stage:)Perfect for cuddling!
Love Misty

Just so you know, I consider myself one of her "aunties" :) and I appreciate that "fix" too! I am on your blog multiple times each day, just anticipating the next pictures of your sweet family. Isn't it just indescribable to see your two older ones fall in love with the little one? Oh, so precious! Love you, Molly!
