I have written, and re-written this post. I've found myself coming back to it several times and editing it only because so much time has past since I've last updated everyone. As I come on here and edit this post, I'm deleting the phrases like, "Caroline is now 2 weeks old" and "Caroline is now 3 1/2 weeks old" and "Caroline is now 4 weeks old", etc....you get the point. I've decided to post already so...here goes...for the last time..."Caroline is now 6 weeks old!". We've really adjusted to a life of four in our family and couldn't be happier. Caroline has more and more awake moments and we relish her little smiles she throws our way and her sweet "coo's".

Hans has really taken to his little sister.

From the moment he saw her in the hospital it was like he knew this was his special little sister. Even today, 6 weeks later, he is still taken with her. He literally beams when she's around him and loves playing with her hands and feet and giving her kisses.

He reaches for her and says "hold her". I love seeing my babies love on each other!

He loves to climb into her crib and relax with her. We're all on to his secret though, because we really know that he just loves his old aquarium and likes showing off on the fact that he knows how to push all of the right buttons, etc. It's ok Caroline, you'll catch on!
