This weekend is going to be awesome!

Here are some updated pictures. Can I just start off with I love being home! Even with all the poop and the crying and the clean up the days fly by and I am totally ok with not leaving the house! All though I have left and some times were better than others :) 2 is definitely more than twice as much work :)
We are learning more about Elsie everyday. She is pretty laid back like Emolyn but really enjoys eating, and would eat all day if I let her. Its the only thing she cries about. She did gain 12 oz in 10 days! She loves the swing we are borrowing from the Youngs (thanks). And she is a total mommas girl. Shawn cant quite make her as happy as I can but its not for lack of trying!
Emolyn and I baked cookies today and they are cooling while she "naps" which is pretty much her singing and reading out loud for an hour, at least, and then (if I am lucky) falling asleep or having an accident or needing to "tell you something" or needing to "see baby sister".
Emolyn is doing great transitioning to being a big sister but does seem disappointed that baby sister has so many rules and places you cant touch (eyes mostly) and you aren't aloud to kiss her with food in your mouth. But she has been doing really well considering. And she loves to help! she cleans, she attempts to cook, she puts away her laundry, she gets things for me, she puts away her clean dishes. Its fantastic! She has also been pushing the envelope with her fashion sense. Its been intense.
We are looking forward to a fun-filled holiday weekend and what looks to be the start of the Holiday season, not that you would know it by the 90 degree weather! Pictures of this weekend to come soon and look for more Elsie newborn pics soon too!

My Elsie Lane...

Well we brought home Elsie Lane Thompson last thursday. She came into the world on Oct 5th at 7:50 am weighing 6 lbs 5 oz (I was shocked she was so big!) and 20 inches long. She is too big for most of little sisters preemie clothes and is a totally silent sleeper! Unfortunately no time to write more now. Maybe when we figure out which is day and which is night and how not to fall asleep only 5 minutes into nursing I will write more :)
Enjoy our excellent photos taken just this last sunday by Tracey at En Love Photography!

Shawn's pick for outfit!

My favorite!

Some comparison shots for you. 2 days before Emolyn was born...
2 days before baby sister!
39 weeks how crazy!
This week is a lot to look forward to. I am excited and nervous and excited!
Emolyn and babys room looks so cute! Linda came and decorated, its almost done I will put up some pictures when we complete the final touches.
Emolyn just figured out yesterday she and baby sister have the same mom and dad, it did not go over well.
Emolyn has been performing a new song, something about across the river. Linda any ideas?
I am going to buy myself some fun birthday presents today because I deserve them.
Yesterday was only 103 degrees I could totally tell the cooler weather! So sad...
Made an awesome photoboook of my maternity photos through Tiny Prints. Heads up, not very user friendly. I offered to tell them all about my experience...
Already scheduled newborn baby photo shoot!
Next time I blog will be with new baby pictures!
