Pictures from the last week...

The two midwives, Jill and Stephanie, who helped deliver Lauren. When Stephanie broke my water at 11am none of us thought Lauren would arrive before their shift ended - at 6pm!

Apparently Lydia "chose" this gift for her little sis. Aunt Liz gave her a few options and this is what she picked. As she handed me the little gift bag she kept saying, " I want it...I want it!" Needless to say "little Pup" spends more time with Lydia than Lauren!


Heading home...couldn't come soon enough for Dad who was going stir-crazy!
Look how strong! She pushes up on me and tries to look at my face. Her little legs are also quite strong - but I knew that already from her late night gymnastics in the womb!

Lydia seems to be doing as well as we could hope in her new role as big sister. She loves to talk to Lauren whenever she notices that her eyes are open. She gives lots of kisses to Lauren and wants to hold her frequently. In those first couple of days, Lydia became distressed whenever Lauren was crying. Now when Lauren cries, Lydia will say "Baby Wah-yen's okay Mommy," since we had to remind her of that so many times!

She is so cute! Looks like she's already changed since I came by last week. And don't worry...you'll be getting sleep before you know it. :)

I see you changed the name of your blog. :) I'm glad you are adjusting to life as a new family of 4.

I've been hoping for new pictures and here they are. How cute are your two girls! Sounds like Lydia has taken to her new sister and I love that she wanted to get her a pup. By the way, thanks for voicing your opinion on my prayer card to be. I didn't really like the first picture of me but I really liked the background better. So I needed a little help making up my mind.

I just realized that I hadn't commented on this post. I love the pictures of your girls! My favorite is the one of Ben bathing Lauren. How are things going now that you've had a little more time to try to get settled?
