The older children have now initiated Ellie into the family. Alan was holding her during dinner tonight and I noticed she had marker on the back of her clothes. Yup, they drew on their sister. Sigh. Guess this means she is part of the family now.
Just wanted to add that I am pretty darn sure it was totally accidental since the older kids were watching her while I was making dinner and they were also playing with Kieran's new Crayola Glo type toy.
