We were all here to welcome Gianna home from the hospital today! The kids were especially glad to meet their new sister and see their parents for the first time in a few days. Thanks to Aunt Ori Ori for taking great care of them until we could make it up here!
What a great job the kids are doing adapting to her! Especially Jade, who just cannot get enough of her! Vinnie, is still not sure what to think, I’m sure she will grow on him. He is now the boy between two girls, just like his Uncle Aaron was growing up.
Here are all “the girls” together. Geemaw, Mommy, Jade and Gianna
Daddy and Jade counting her toes to make sure they are all there. And yes, she does have feet like her mommy!
I’ve already warned Scott that girls will wrap you around their little finger and you will let them! It doesn’t matter if you are warned or not, it just happens. I am speaking from experience and yes, it still works today.
One of the advantages of being the grandparents and the photographers is that you do get included in the photographs! (and you can retouch yourself if you want to, and why wouldn’t you?)
Photographed with the Fuji 60mm macro lens on my X-Pro 1 and just a hint of fill flash, I do love this image!
“Sisters” Every now and then we get a shot that we just love, this is one of those images!
The final shot is just the 3 of them, but there will be more with the entire family very soon. This was a great day and I thank my Lord that I am alive and healthy enough to make the trip up here for the weekend! I’ll head back tomorrow and Marlene will stay here for a few weeks to help them get settled in. We are blessed that because she doesn’t work outside the home, she can take this time to help out and enjoy the family. She is a huge blessing to many people because of that flexibility. I am no doubt the most thankful and biggest recipient of all she does!
Great job Sis and Scott! What a blessing she is.
