After people ask how Ella is adjusting, the next question is always, “And how is Sophie?” Wonder what would make anyone think that Soph would have a hard time with this?!? Could it be that everything has centered around her for the past four years!??! :)
Really…she has done very well. We had a rough week two weeks ago, but things seem to be much better. Even on her “I’m not getting enough attention” days, she is thrilled to have Ella as her sister. Our biggest problem seems to be that Sophia forgets that she isn’t Ella’s momma. We have to remind her that sisters are helpers and not in charge.
All of that said, Sophia really is a super helper. She is great about keeping an eye on Ella if I have to step out of the room. She loves to feed her and help me get the diaper bag ready. Her all time favorite activity is scooping the formula and shaking the bottle. I’m not sure what’s so fun about that, but hey…if it makes her happy!
Sophia’s best gift to us so far with her sister was convincing her that taking a bath is really not all that bad. Ella finally warmed up to the idea of sitting in the bathtub rather than standing and screaming after she saw how much fun Sophia has in there. She now hikes her leg up trying to get in and join Soph. It’s hilarious!
Enjoy the pictures of our girls. We are having so much fun watching them get closer each day.
