Connor hadn't seemed too interested in Brenna since she's been home, except to point out things like "Baby Brenna's crying." And we had kinda been trying to keep him away from her since he was sick this week.
But yesterday, we told him he was going to get to hold her for the first time, and to our surprise (and delight), he got really excited. He sat down and said "Connor hold the baby!" (Yes, he talks in the third person. We blame Elmo.)
He held out his hands, and as soon as Evan gently placed Brenna in his lap, he wrapped his arms protectively around her head.
He kept trying to "smile" and really just ended up looking like an angry chimp in most of the photos, so this was the best I got :)
The Illini were playing (though I use that term loosely based on their performance again Northwestern) yesterday, so we were decked out in our orange and blue!
I love my precious babies more than anything in the world!
