BIG Brother, little Sister


A lot of people have been asking how Clayton is doing with a little sister. Well, we are really blessed that he is not the jealous type when we hold her at all. He is mostly very curious about her. He occasionally says "Sadie", but more often just calls her "Baby". The thing we really have to watch out for with him is, if Sadie is crying or seems upset in her bouncy seat, Clayton will toss her paci, or even one of his toys in a her, as if to say, "there ya go...will that make you happy?" Sometimes when she is crying, he walks over, looks at her 'sternly' and say a big "SSHHH!" :) What a kid! All in all, we think he likes her though!

I am doing really well! The first few days at home were slow-going, but I am almost back to normal now! (doing laundry, cleaning etc!)

Wow, Kara. Don't over do it. Even if you feel great you should remember that you still had a baby about a week ago. 8-) It is hard to "sit still" when there is so much to do, isn't it?! I was fortunate to have my mom stay with us for about 2 weeks. It was a great help. I think it is so cute that Clayton tells her "sssshhhh!" lol! I am sure he is a very sweet big brother. There is plenty of "big brotherness" going on in this house. lol! The protectiveness is so sweet to watch! Looking forward to seeing more of Sadie soon. lv...
