Roomies

They could hardly wait.  

They've been so sweet to watch as they settle into their new room together.  Ella looks up to Buddy for everything.  She's always asking him questions about things she doesn't understand with a little quizzical look on her face.  She understands the importance of his space. Likewise, he has embraced her presence in his room.  Upon waking up yesterday morning, he immediately showed her the new loft bed and then proceeded to start carrying some of her things into his room to find them new homes.  All we could hear was Ella, I'm going to put such and such here... and... Okay Buddy!


The first night went very well.  Buddy got up once to use the bathroom.  And Ella slept right through until 5:40 this morning.  We went back to the doctor today and got some different cough syrup for the congestion in her chest.  Hopefully, she continues to sleep through.


Buddy has handled the up pretty well.  We were a bit nervous about how high it was, but he knows the right way to get up and down.  He loves his new bed so much that he tried five times to take a nap yesterday.  And Ella knows she's not allowed on the ladder - at least not until she's bigger and Buddy gets smaller (she thinks).


Next to Ella's bed is a little space that they've already claimed as their club house.


I can only imagine what fun they are having reinventing their space.  It must be like an eternal sleep over.  When I put them to bed last night, and when Ella sneezed, Buddy giggled.  They really are the best of friends.  Not saying there aren't territorial tiffs and arguments about fairness - but for the most part, they love each other's company more than anyone else's.  


Little Ella refused to nap in her bed today - just another way she's growing up so quickly before our eyes.  In the last week she just seems to have grown where she isn't our baby anymore.  Sleeping in a big bed and having conversations that make her sound more like her six year old brother.  Things like let me tell you something...I've got a secret...and her stories keep getting longer.  She'll describe something happening to her and it has three complex thoughts and then she always ends with and I did.

Joey and I have talked about how Ella might do with the adjustment to a new baby.  I remember how Buddy was just shaken when Ella came home.  His whole world was turned upside down and I didn't have the time for him that I had before.  In the end, I think it was harder on me.  It was an emotional time.  

But, Ella is different.  She has a natural maternal instinct.  She's always said - from the first moment we shared the pregnancy with her - that my baby is a boy and the one in her tummy is a girl.  Now she talks about my baby coming soon and hers is too.  She'll ask me if the baby is kicking and then ask to feel it.  Then she asks if I want to feel her baby moving.  It's been really sweet.  Joey and I agree she is big sister material.  She'll be the glue that holds our family together.  I see in her many aspects of my sister Naemmah.  

And I can't wait.

oooh. so many things to write. i'm missing you today. probably because i wish i were there, to be a bigger part of all of this... to help with the kids when it's time to go to the hospital, to drop off some snacks and dinner after you get home. i love your new bump picture. i love the new bedroom. i wish i could see them, both!
i'm on pins and needles for you!
