While we were in the hospital, Mimi and Sara took Eleanor to have her pick out an outfit for Amelia to wear home. Eleanor was so excited to see that Amelia was wearing the little outfit. She was also so happy to hold Amelia. She didn't want to hold her for much more then a few seconds.
While I was in New York I bought Eleanor a newborn Middleton doll, thinking she would love having her own baby when I brought home Amelia. As you can see, she wasn't that thrilled about the doll. It's a good thing I had a new pair of dress up shoes on hand and John had a squishy spider for her.
We have been so pleased with how Eleanor has been with Amelia. She loves "her" baby. She told me today that when Amelia smiles it makes her smile. The first night we brought Amelia home, I heard Eleanor yell in her sleep, "Giver her back! She's my baby!". I'm so glad they get to have each other and can't wait for them to become best friends!
