Here is the very proud big brother getting to hold Naomi with a supportive hand under the head from Grandma "just in case." He was very sweet and gentle with her and had fun counting her toes and patting her head. She didn't cry when he was holding her at all, so it appeared she approved of her big brother! We made a big deal about how Josiah was the first brother to see her and how tomorrow he will get to introduce her to Caleb and Daniel. We reminded him about how when he was born we called him our little "pumpkinhead" and how we call Naomi our little "tomato" because she turns so red when she cries. Josiah's response to that was, "And I turned orange when I cried." We laughed pretty hard at that one!
Daddy has discovered that Naomi will calm down when held this way. He sings to her and bounces her around a bit and she makes all sorts of funny faces for him. Here it looks like she is winking at her Daddy and smiling! Learning to flirt already I guess? So sweet!
She likes to nurse in this football hold and many times just falls asleep in this position. Thankfully, she is taking to nursing well and today seems to be sleeping a little better too. We think she has a lot of gas bubbles in her stomach though as she will wake up out of a deep sleep to cry and then will fall back asleep soon afterward. She also will take a pacifier some of the time, so when she gets super fussy, we have an option! Yeah! My Dad also came by to visit today too, but I didn't have the camera with me, so we will have to get some pictures with Grandpa another time. He went to visit his parents this weekend, so in the near future we will have him over again and get some Grandpa and Naomi shots. Grandma (my mom) visited yesterday and again I only had the video camera, so I got some live footage, but no still shots. We should have taken a few today when she was here again, oh well!
