Just the 6 of Us

I told Damon before we went to the hospital that one specific picture I wanted was a picture of our family with the new baby.  We have pictures of the three of us with Stella and the four of us with Cille, but somehow we forgot to take a picture of the five of us when Watts was a baby.  I was determined not to let this happen again.  So, here goes nothing...
Watts refused to give up his noonie for a while...
We also didn't choose the best backdrop, but our options were pretty limited...
Almost there...
Got it!  Now, if only this photo wasn't too wide to use for my Twitter profile pic.  I could choose a kid to crop out, but that seems wrong...
And the perfect moment for photos was, of course, very short-lived...
Watts, while slightly confused and emotionally frustrated by his new sister, is still very sweet and gentle with her...
Stella is a little obsessed with babies and will be a great mom someday.  For now she is just mad that we won't let her walk around while she holds the baby...
Cille is still celebrating the fact that she believes Corinne to have brown hair.  I don't have the heart to tell her that Corinne has blonde eyebrows and that doesn't bode well for Team Brunette...



So sweet!
Yes, Stella hopped right up in my hospital bed and took over the baby...
Who needs mom?  Not these three...
After changing into their special sibling shirts that I got them for the hospital visit, Cille and Watts used their cast off clothing to make superhero capes...
Watts is showing a lot more love and affection for Cille than usual.  This morning he actually defended her when he felt like Stella was being mean to her.  That is a huge milestone for us...
When the big kids went home, it was just Daddy and his newest little princess...
It still boggles my mind that this only child that I married is now loving on his 4th baby...

We probably could have gone home Friday night but we thought that the transition would be smoother for everyone if we waited until Saturday.  It was pretty chilly outside for Corinne's homecoming, so she bundled up in a cozy sleeper for her first ride in everyone's favorite infant carrier...
