Here were some messages we got from the kids’ teachers this weekend.
On Monday (when we first went into the hospital) from Mrs. Brydges
Jordan and Erin, Elliott is calm and happy. After he finished his math center, he asked “can I please make my mom a card because I miss her very, very, very, very, very, very much.” He is a doll!!
On Tuesday from Mrs. B again (after I sent some pics of Natalie and Elliott with Conor)
This makes me want to cry! Elliott came in so excited, too! He can’t wait to meet Conor and have a snuggle with Mommy! Wow he is big and so beautiful! He looks like Natalie and Elliott, what a blessing! Congrats! Love, Amy
From Mrs. Quirk (Elliott’s other teacher)
He is so beautiful! We can’t wait to meet him! Elliott has been so excited as are we all! Sending lots of love your way!
<Note: Elliott’s entire class made Conor a book with pictures and their very good writing. It’s so sweet!>
From Ms. Anderson (Natalie’s teacher)
Oh my goodness!! Natalie came in beaming this morning- she can’t wait to come meet him after school. Conor is so beautiful. Congratulations to you and the whole family! I hope you’re doing well! Thanks for sharing!
We got lots of reports from parents of the kid’s friends talking about their excitment too. I feel so lucky that the kids are so excited about Conor. Elliott read him a book again tonight and showed him a new toy (a black and white bull’s eye – which Elliott commented that Conor probably thought was so fascinating). Natalie held him right after school (I think), before dance and during stories and is just so concerned if he cries.
Conor is officially 3 days, 4 hours old. It’s been fabulous to have Nana hear – she’s on morning duty with Natalie and Elliott so we can rest, helps thoughout the day with a ton of stuff and always cooks dinner. Yum. 🙂 Conor likes snuggling with her too – and crying doesn’t turn her off. A great trait in a Nana.
