We finally got Craig, the camera, the sunlight and Elizabeth all in the same place at the same time and awake, so we took some pictures. It's been a pretty restful three weeks for this mama, though Craig has had three weddings and we both got a pretty nasty cold in week two. And, of course, I mean restful as in we've had lots of help with meals and kids and housework so other people are making up for where I'm slacking off. ;)
Lil'Eliza (we're still figuring out what name suits her) is pretty happy and falls all over herself smiling those big, open mouth, goofy baby grins.
Her siblings all adore her. Lucinda especially wants to be holding her all the time. When Lizzy was just a couple days old, we had put her in Lucinda's lap. Lucinda puts her arms around her and says, "Baby. . .uh. . .baby--mine."
She adores her little sister so much that she wants to possess her for her very own. Lucky for her, Lizzy is going to be with us for a very long time. Lucinda will always have a little sister; she will always be a big sister.
For the first time, we have more girls that boys in our family!
But the brothers are pretty devoted, too. Look at these sweet older brothers:
"Brothers . . . Brothers . . . there were never such devoted brothers . . ." (I couldn't help myself!)
