Owen and Amelia came to meet their sweet baby sister on Sunday, May 24.
This one picture sums up the encounter perfectly. Amelia was overjoyed & zealous. She could not wait to get her hands on that baby! Owen was respectful and reverent. He didn't speak a word over a whisper the entire visit. In essence, their personalities flip flopped for an entire hour!
After Owen held Macy, it was Amelia's turn. It was as if she's been waiting all of her life for this new baby to arrive. It's so fun to watch her enthusiasm (also a little anxiety provoking!)
Owen was so gentle (and still is) with little Macy.
I hope this is the beginning of a great sister relationship. It will be SO fun to have sisters!
(And when they are teenagers...maybe somewhat of a nightmare, too!)
Macy brought each of the kids a gift from her- what a thoughtful little sister! (Amelia received a Little Mermaid princess dress- not pictured. She was whizzing around the room too much to get a good shot!)
I thank God for allowing me to raise and cherish these 3 children, and I am thrilled to watch their relationships bloom!
