Since no one seems to object to more baby pictures, these were taken June 30th when Eloise was 15 days old.

I'm not sure why the boys always insist on cuddling their baby sister at night before bed... when it's dark and the only light I have to work with is an awful yellow table lamp next to the couch.
It might be that they agree with my need for an external flash and are trying to help me convince their dad.
More likely, however, is that it has something to do with their nightly efforts to delay said bedtime...
What's that? It's time for jammies? But can't I just hold Eloise one more time? Please? Just look how cute we are? Will you take our picture, mom?
Half an hour later...
Baby has been cuddled, pictures have been taken, and bedtime has successfully been postponed.
