This picture pretty much explains exactly how Ellie feels about her little sister.
From the moment I wake up in the morning until the time I put her to bed she takes every opportunity she can to be with "babe-uh." Within moments of me sitting down, she is right there inquiring about the baby. "Mom, did she kick you real hard?" Every question she asks me about baby is always followed with a happy little giggle. I could spend half an hour on the couch and she is oblivious to everything going on around her including a fun kid show... she just wants to snuggle the babe. Nothing can keep her attention for that long, and it is so boring- just a big belly! Every time I eat something she asks if I was feeding baby, and if baby liked it. She likes to cover baby up in all of her blankets, and pretend that baby is cold and hot. My favorite thing to witness is her girly little giggle when she is playing with my tummy. There are no actual words just a lot of happy noises and humming. I thought/ was hoping that it would wear off. It is still really sweet, but the insisting on a good morning snuggle every day has it's draw backs. Also, her continual trying to access the belly in public or while at church has lead to a few embarrasing moments. She is truly enamored with this baby, and talks about her non stop. I am looking forward to all the help I will receive from her once the baby comes.
The other day when I was headed out she asked, "You’re going bye bye mommy?” "yes honey" "are you going to take baby?” I just had to laugh because of her sweetness.
Jensen loves the baby too, but not nearly as much as Ellie... she cannot get enough!
This picture was my second assignment in my class... dark backgrounds. Thank goodness for dark paint in my bedroom and a timer.
