And let me tell you, they are sweet, sweet, sweet! They’re only ten months apart, so there is never a dull moment either.
I guess you can imagine that Joy was in baby heaven! Since we arrived late Friday night, they were already asleep for the night, so we were only able to peek in at sleeping babies, which by the way was absolutely precious! So Saturday morning, Joy’s eyes popped open at the first peep of baby sounds and she was up to check it out! Sydney (who’s almost 19 months old) took up with Joy immediately and was attached to Joy’s hip most of the time. She loved being toted around and was curious about everything and wanted to be in the “happening place”.
Sydney has the bluest eyes and the longest eyelashes!
And then little Ms. Ellie (9 months old) was absolutely precious. She is a tiny thing – a little peanut. Since Joy had her hands full with Sydney when Ellie woke up, I claimed Ellie first! But then as you can see here, it didn't take Joy long to take her from me either.
Ellie has the sweetest disposition and an illuminating smile!
Well it goes without saying that both girls were wagged around lots and kissed all over their baby cheeks (between us and Grandmama and Pop).
Both girls have special needs, but that’s just another way of saying they need special love and attention which they most certainly are getting now! I look at those two girls and I don’t see “special needs”. I see “special blessings” sent straight from heaven to Richie and Missy’s family.
God is good! :)
Oh, and I snapped one picture of the youngest grandkids. We were just missing Colt and Trey (they're both 22 and weren't there at the time).
