I took a photograph of Eleanor each day until the new baby arrived, to document our last 4-6 weeks as a family of three.
You and mama were napping together in your room when mama’s water broke suddenly! She quietly got up, moved you into your crib, and then called daddy to take her to the hospital to have the baby. Your little brother, August Ray, was born less than three hours later.
You came to the hospital to meet your little brother, August, for the first time. You kept saying “baby!” and pointing to him. You sat on the bed with mama and pointed to his nose, stroked his hair, and shared your stuffed piggy with him. You were so sweet.
Mama and daddy love you so much, and they can tell that you’re going to be a great big sister. Congratulations, Eleanor!
