Noelle and Natalie are thrilled with their baby brother, and are very protective and gentle with him. They ask to hold him at every opportunity, and sink into despair when they cannot. I can count on them to rock him or sing to him anytime he's fussy or when I need an extra pair of hands, and he knows their voices. He will quiet down in the car when they sing to him.
Here is Noelle cuddling a sleepy Philip.
Last week, while we were cleaning the twins' bedrom, I found this piece of paper. Needless to say, I have scanned it, laminated it, and will be keeping it for posterity.
