One week old!

I cannot believe Summer is already a week old. She has been such a sweetie! I love the feeling we have in our house with a new baby around. We are all just so happy all of the time and seem to migrate to wherever she is. Mike is such a cute dad to her. He is cute with the boys too, but I can tell he is going to be extra protective of her. I think we all will be. She probably won't need it though. I put her on her belly for "tummy time" today and she held her head up and tried to pull herself forward. She is one strong little chica!!! She will need to be with two big brothers around. I could go on and on about her. She is such a fun addition to our family.

Here is Summer at the hospital right before we brought her home. It has been so fun to dress a little girl. I actually get a little excited when she spits up or has a blow out because it means I get to put her in another outfit. Boys have cooler toys but girls definitely have cuter clothes!
Tracy is very in love with his baby sister. Every morning he comes out of his room and asks where baby Summer is. Whenever someone comes to visit he asks them if they want to see him hug and kiss his baby sister. He loves to play with her toes and sing her "Twinkle Twinkle". (Everett joins in about every fifth word.) Whenever we drive somewhere he holds her hand and talks to her. I was trying to take pictures of her today and he wouldn't leave her side so I decided to make him a part of them. He told me he was worried I wasn't going to be careful enough. He is just so fascinated with how cute and little she is and what she is doing every minute of the day. She is so lucky to have big brothers to watch over her. In fact, yesterday Tracy said,"We have to take care of baby girls Mom". It was so sweet.
Today he was eating lunch and found a piece of noodle on the table. He looked up at me and asked, "Is this part of Summer's belly button?" Having a baby around has been a lot of fun for our family. She already has us all wrapped around her little finger.
Everett likes to have a turn holding her, but after a few seconds he says "done". He is always on binki patrol. Whether she wants it or not! He also likes to help me tuck her in and close her door so she can go "nigh-nigh". He is also in love with her. We just have to watch him more closely because he likes to play a little more roughly. He enjoys having someone sitting next to him in the car and narrate to me what she is doing. Most of the time it is "baby Summy sleeping."

She is so cute! I can't believe how fast time goes by. We need to make it over to see her while she is still little.
It is cute to see how your boys are with her.

So cute. I love the pictures of the boys with Summer. She is going to love being the baby sister of these two boys!

I'm so glad you posted more pictures of Summer - she is so pretty! And what a cute big brother Tracy is going to be. Everett is so funny - we really need to come and see them all before I have our baby and we're confined to the house for a while. (I'm not as good as you are at getting around with kids...) Congratulations again you guys - she's lucky to have such a wonderful family! ;)
