At Home

We said good-bye to Nana this morning. She stayed with us for the entire week. The boys had so much fun with her and Chad and I are so grateful for her help.

Here are just a few shots of Molly from yesterday. We had to throw one of her crying in, just to show that she isn't sleeping or nursing 100% of the time. Though she really doesn't cry very often.

And we also wanted to prove that Andrew and Ryan are still here, too. They are loving having Daddy at home to play with and had a blast with Nana, too. She has been their personal playmate this week. They have bowled, blown bubbles, played in the water table, gone to Chuck E. Cheese's, and Krispy Kreme. Then today, Aunt Emily came from Utah. They are in heaven!

Ryan and Andrew are adjusting to having a baby sister. Ryan is fascinated by her. He climbs into the chair by the window in the living room and demands "I hold Baby Sister" at random times during the day in the middle of playing. He loves to kiss her. He likes to count her eyes and nose and feet. One day in the hospital her little feet were tucked up under her and out of the bottom of the jammies. He noticed and started saying, "Oh no! Where'd her feet go? UH-OH! No feet Baby Sister." He still doesn't call her Molly, unless we ask him to say the baby's name. Then he says "Ma-wee."

Andrew likes to talk to her and about her. He calls her beautiful and tells her he loves her. He is very fascinated by her nursing. This morning I told Andrew I was feeding Molly and would be able to help him in a moment. He explained to me very matter of factly that Molly "doesn't eat and she isn't hungry. Milk is a drink, Mommy. She is thirsty and she drinks." He calls her Molly Rose Scribner most of the time.

"Ryan, blow some bubbles for us."

What a beautiful family you have!! It is awesome that your boys are so excited about the new girl in town. It sounds like you are doing great with having three kids, but please let me know if there is anything I can do to help!!

She is SO stinking cute! And has a completely different look from the boys. They are stinking cute too, but in a very boyish way! It looks like they are having a great time.
