Snips and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails
Last Monday, I got a call that my brother-in-law's wife was admitted into the hospital. It looked like our new nephew was coming a little earlier than expected. So, we were definitely excited for his arrival. Then, on Tuesday, I waited and waited and waited. Lunch time came and went and no nephew. Dinner time came and went and no nephew. Then, we got the call that he was coming. Husband and I both had the same thought. He was going to be born within 10 minutes of when Little Miss was born. Must be a good time for babies to be born. On Wednesday, I could barely work because I couldn't wait to see the new little guy. Of course, I was super busy so left later than I anticipated (plus, I had to make a few stops on the way home to pick up presents). Then, we got to the hospital and saw Little Miss - who was in exile in the waiting room as she wasn't a sibling and under 12. We went in to see Sister-in-Law and then Husband saw the new nephew. Then, it was my turn! He's very tiny, but he's just absolutely perfect. Little Miss has gone to the hospital with the In-Laws and either getting little or no naps. She's been such a trooper and just coming home and going straight to bed. I think she'll be glad to have a relaxing weekend with just her parents.
