How can it be a week already? Time is already moving too fast. And we already feel like Lily has always been with us.
Bella has had a few moments of pushing the boundaries and I've had a few moments of very public tearfulness in response, but none of it has been a real surprise and once Jim and I realised that we needed to just chill with Bella a little more, things have started to even out again.
I've been really surprised though by how totally Bella accepts that Lily is here and is here to stay. She's very proud of having a sister and especially proud that Lily is a McGrory-Patton just like her.
I know things will change once Jim goes back to work (a few weeks yet), but at the moment we're all working really well together and just enjoying all the newness and all the fun.
Loving it all.
