Hallie comes home

We came home from the hospital on Easter Sunday. Here are a few pictures from that day, and a few more from this week.

Will introduced her to the baby swing, and rocked her for a little while to comfort her. He also let her snuggle with Roar, which I think was about the nicest gesture he could have done.

The bouncy chair has been very useful this week. Here she is taking a nap, and Will decided he would help by feeding her the bottle that goes with his baby.

I'm very proud of Will - we can tell having the new baby around sucking up everyone's attention is tough for him. But he's been very sweet to his baby sister.

One night, instead of having me read him his bedtime story, he wanted to read a story to Hallie.

Here big brother Will is helping Hallie calm down by letting her suck on his pinky finger.

Hallie's life thus far has been about 95% a combination of sleeping, screaming while she gets her diaper changed, and eating. But more and more she's having moments of eyes-wide-open-looking-around time.

This picture of baby Will is one of my favorites. Hallie was a good sport for the nose-sucking pose.

I guess this could be considered Hallie's first bath picture, since it was her first at home. She technically had her first bath at the hospital. She was as happy as she looks to get nice and clean. Will wasn't a big fan of his first bath either.
