Grace Says “Can I Be a Mommy, Too?”

Sorry for the lethargic blog of late. I am just enjoying my first couple weeks with our new daughter Rose, and soaking it all in. I’ll be back in action in a little while, but for now, Grace has other plans…

It took a little time, but she finally worked up the courage to hold her 5 day old sister on her lap (under the close supervision of mommy, of course). I have video, and maybe I will post it, but suffice to say, the hugs, kisses, and protection she gave to her little sister had us both welling up.

Grace Says “Hi, Rose.”

Yesterday, March 10, at 11:17am, my second daughter, Rose, was born. I think the best way to introduce her to you is through Grace’s eyes.

I will say that, at first, Grace was sad and confused. But then that sadness shifted to worry and concern for Rose’s well-being (she knew Rose from inside mommy’s tummy, and loved to hug and caress her there, so she will be a loving sister. This first encounter was just a little bittersweet for our former only-child).
