So we have made it for a little more than a week now with no major crises or meltdowns and are doing really well! Tessa has been a great baby so far. She mostly just eats and sleeps right now, so my main task has been to keep Eli from "loving" on her too much. I think I've said the sentences "Be gentle with the baby", "Don't touch the baby" and "Don't catapult the baby out of the bouncy seat" about 6,492 times since we came home last Wednesday :). He hasn't really shown any signs of jealousy, though. I think he's too young to really "get it" and has rolled with it beautifully.
But, I know the real reason you're all here is to see the pics, so here you go!
Got Eli from the grandparents and we're headed home! Tessa's not too thrilled about it at the moment.
I have to say that I'm lovin' all the pink stuff.
Layla's already lookin' out for her little sis.
Eli being "gentle".
Enough with this gentle business. Time to tackle Layla!
Eli has recently started snuggling with his stuffed lion when he's sleeping. This melts my heart!
and this laugh does, too.
(and yes, my baby generally does wear just a t-shirt and diaper when we're home. Pretty ghetto, I know, but it makes diaper changes a lot easier! Don't judge me... :))
I debated whether to post this on my blog, but it was an amazing moment that I want to be able to look back on when I go through my blog later. So, you get to see it, too. Don't worry - nothing innapropriate is showing, but you do get to see a slimey baby :)
