Some of you have been wondering how Cordelia is adjusting to life in a family of 4. Well, she has been doing quite well. She is thrilled about her role as a new big sister. A few very minor meltdowns have occurred, but those seem to be more about the change in routine than anything else. With regard to her baby sister she is incredibly affectionate, so eager to "help," and so proud of her new sister.

Elise and Cordelia

Yesterday she was talking to the neighbor kids through the fence and we overheard her say, "This is mommy and daddy. I have a new baby sister. Her name is Baby Elise.She is growing. She is part of our family and I love her."----Our hearts exploded a little bit.

I've been thinking of you & the transition to two. It sounds like Cordelia is adjusting really well! I was also so pleased to read that Elise's birth was so much smoother than Cordelia's :)
