I don't know where the time goes. I have so much to catch up on, and a million pictures to post. Elsie is already a month old, ah!
While I was pregnant I would often ask the boys what they thought we should name their little sister. Penelope and Millie were their two favorite names. When we brought Elsie home from the hospital the boys announced that if we could name the baby they could to...thus Elsie became also known as Penelope. I stayed home from church the first few weeks after Elsie was born and from what I understand several people asked the boys what we named our new baby to which they of course replied, "Penelope". It has caused some confusion but I think it is hilarious. It has been four weeks and they still refer to Elsie as Penelope.
The boys are so sweet with Elsie. They kiss her, talk to her, and beg to hold her all day long. This is a picture of Logan watching TV while holding Elsie's hand, so cute! Whenever she cries the boys do their best to comfort her. They scramble to find her binki, pat her on the head, hold her hand, or sing to her.
When Elsie was two weeks old we went to get pumpkins on our first real outing. Dutch Growers green house has a fun hay bale maze every year and the kids loved it. We had a hard time keeping up with the boys. This dead end allowed me to catch Logan for a quick picture.
They ran through the maze atleast three times.
After much deliberation we took home three wonderful pumpkins to carve.
