Dino’s worst nightmare

09-1

Audrey loves taking Dino for a walk and getting to hold his leash.  As you can imagine, being dragged around by a 1 year old is less thrilling for Dino…in fact, it’s down right humiliating (hence the fact that he’s keeping the same amount of distance from her that a 13 year old does from her parents when in public).

Kick Line

Here’s a picture of Elise from last week.  I love this picture because it looks like she and the duck are in a kick line (or maybe I’m just tired and seeing things).

Baby’s first road trip

On Saturday we packed up and went to Greenville, SC (aka: “G-Vegas”) for the day.  It was nice to get out of the house, and we had a great time.  We walked around Main Street and had a fabulous lunch, and then headed to the zoo.  Audrey loves the zoo, and she likes to growl at all the animals…hilarious!

Elise enjoyed the zoo from the comfort of our new “double wide” stroller, and slept pretty much the entire day.

Audrey was pretty wiped out by the end of the day too.

One week old today

I can’t believe that Elise is already a week old!  We went for her first doctor’s visit today and she got a glowing report (the doctor said she was “beyond perfect”).  She’s up to 7 lbs already (about half a pound more than when we left the hospital), and is eating and sleeping like a champ!  Can’t ask for much more than that.

Baby “Bling”

Sisters

Audrey seems to be enjoying having a baby sister…at least for now.  She woke up from her nap this morning and the first thing she said to me was “Baby”.  She’s been pretty sweet with Elise so far (at least as sweet as you can expect a 15 month old to be).

Here she is holding her for the first time:

We bought Audrey her own “baby” too (as a gift from her new little sister), and she loves it!  She carries it around everywhere and is constantly busy doing things for her baby—getting it’s blanket, bottle, toys, etc.

Elise Isabella

Here are a couple more pictures of Elise Isabella (that’s right, we finally decided on a name!!!).

Elise got her first bath late last night.

We are all doing well and have even gotten some sleep in the last 24 hours.  We are very thankful that my parents are in town and taking care of Audrey as it has really allowed us to focus on getting to know our newest little family member.  Audrey is having a GREAT time with them too (gotta love grandparents)!  We’ve been SO impressed with the hospital and staff here, but we’re also looking forward to heading home tomorrow afternoon and settling into our new routine.  Thanks again for all your prayers, calls, comments, emails, etc.
