Smiley Baby

Elly loves to smile. All you have to do is rub her cheeks, her nose, or smile at her and she will smile back! It seems really early for her to be interacting like this, but she is very alert and aware of other people. She responds very clearly to Ken's and my voice. It is adorable. And it is great that she isn't a crier. She laughs a little and is finding her voice with squeals and such. I love having girls!

Elly's First Bottle (mom's freedom!)

Ok, so I know I am a BIG dork, but this is a video of Elly [actually] drinking from a bottle. For those of you didn't know, Eden NEVER took a bottle (and we tried, oh did we try!), so for 13 months I had to nurse her every few hours. Elly is a little over 1 month and DRANK THE WHOLE BOTTLE. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!

A little over a month old

Elly is getting very big! She is a very happy, content baby, and she sleeps a lot. We are having so much fun with both of our girls these days. It's amazing how quickly we forgot what it's like to have a newborn around! Eden loves her little sister, giving her hugs and kisses, and trying to "holdy." It is way cute. Elly has a little more hair than her sister did at her age, but other than that, their baby pics look totally very similar. Eden had really dark hair too, so maybe Elly will turn out blond also. Who knows! Elly's eyes are lightening up, but I am not completely convinced yet that she will have blue eyes like her sister. Here are some photos we've taken this last month!
