|Nathan, Lilli, Charlotte, Jill and E.V.|
|Lifesaving iPhone app…|
|The kids just wanted to touch her all over!|
Charlotte was a little shy about it, but she wanted to hold E.V. and did a great job (with a little help from Jill). I’ve been joking with Charlotte that her mom volunteered her to come stay with us and be our live-in nanny, to which she’s responded that she doesn’t know how to change diapers. (Although, somehow she does admit to knowing how to wipe a baby’s bottom…I think she’s playing me.) Luckily for her, the restaurant didn’t have a changing station in either bathroom, so Ryan had to make a couple of trips to the car to freshen up Miss E.V., getting Charlotte off the hook from a diaper-changing demonstration.
And, of course, Jacob was a little stand-offish, being an almost-pre-teen, but he came around once the younger kids were so excited to mess with her. (Plus, in his defense, this whole “baby” thing is old hat to him after three younger siblings…)
|Jacob refused to hold her, but took full advantage of Charlotte’s bravery for a closer look…|
Overall, it was a fun and successful meeting, and we’ll be glad to see them again on school breaks.
Oh, and of course I have to mention Emma Vance’s outfit (which we had to choose carefully, since years of Disney princess movies have made the Aquilio girls quite discerning in their fashion preferences!). I took the opportunity to practice my baby photography…and E.V. was much obliged to cooperate. (She’s such a ham already!)
