Big Brother, Little Sis

At the same time Camille was born, Russell came down with a head cold. True to form, with the cool days and cold winds, his cold turn very quickly into croup (we'd seen the ped that afternoon and she said he was fine). Dan ended up taking Russell to the ER since it was the worst case of croup he's had so far. Since then, the croup subsided into a barking cough and head congestion- enough to be banished from Sunday School and play dates for two weeks now:-(

Needless to say, we've tried to keep Russell from loving Camille too closely but he just adores her and likes to be up close and personal. Amazingly, Camille has stayed healthy despite the germs being blown her way. This is the first picture of the kids together, this afternoon, as it was the first time I let Russell hold Camille. He was SO excited, he actually sat down for a picture!!

This (will) be the beginning of a beautiful friendship. (Did I get the line right? ;) )

Camille is getting so big! I'm so glad R is excited about his sister. Those germs are impossible! When I think about how I religiously kept my first child away from sick kids/people, I have to laugh. Now my third child gets coughed and slobbered on all day long.

What an adorable picture! I love it! Glad to hear that Camille is avoiding sickness. Must be the breast milk, eh? Hope everyone can get healthy and stay healthy!
