From Four to Five

She fits in so easily.

In a way it feels like she was always here- or at least like she was always supposed to be here....

All those unknown bits have settled down now that she's actually here and the boys can see her and hold her and know her. Ezra wants to be the first one to greet her in the morning and he's the first to say, "Oh, she's so cute!!!"

And Ender has been the most amazing to watch. He was the one having the hardest time with the idea of our family changing. After all, he doesn't even like the little changes that happen in daily life and our family has been the four of us for as long as he can remember.

Now that Ellie is here he wants to stay right by her and stroke her cheek and help pick out her clothes. He's like her guard dog- he makes sure everyone washes their hands before touching her and reminds everyone to hold her carefully. He wants to know everything about how this new baby operates and he's continually amazed at just how much she sleeps (and to be honest, so are Brian and I!)

I am so very grateful for this healthy baby and for the way our boys have been able to join right in on all the baby love without reservation.

It makes this jump from four to five so beautiful.

So blessed, a little overwhelmed (but in such good ways) and looking forward to these next quiet weeks while we learn a bit of who this new little one is and how she fits in the family.
