Maybe this little fella is OK after all

Today for the first time Mara asked if she could hold Campbell. This morning while we were getting her dressed for school is when she asked. Her brother was hanging out in her pink bean bag chair. I told her she could sit on the bean bag and I’d put him in her lap. She was very sweet with him. Kissing him and holding his hand. We compared her feet and hands to his and she was entertained by how little his were compared to hers. I guess this really makes her feel like a “big sister”. So entertained in fact that when I asked if she was ready to go downstairs to eat breakfast she said, “no”. This is totally unlike her because she loves breakfast and it is by far the meal in which she eats the most. This isn’t necessarily the first time she has been sweet. She usually says, “Goodnight Campbell” once we are done reading her books at night before being tucked in to sleep. This would be the first time she proactively wanted to hold him though. Here are some sweet shots I got of the two of them hanging out together.

Smell The Flowers

Filed under: Pictures — Luke @ 11:08 pm

A little over a week ago, before Grandma left from helping us take care of Campbell, all of us took a trip to a local park for a picnic. We have been to this park before for a picnic, as it is really pretty to sit at. It was a Friday, and a beautiful day in the 70s. We ate KFC as it was easy to pick up and just seems to remind us all of a picnic food.

After lunch Mom and Campbell had to get back home for a visit from the smart start nurse. Dad, Mara and Grandma took a stroll around the park. Mara was looking at all the flowers and Grandma was asking her what colors they were. She got most right. She would go “ummmmm” then point really quick and exclaim the color. She was having so much fun. She also would like to smell them too. Although she was skeptical that they really had any smell, saying “noooooooo.”
