Guess what everyone, I'm a big sister now!
I'm sorry I haven't been writing for a while, but the bigger I get the more I want to play outside. And when I leave the writing up to Mom and Dad it never gets done. (Don't tell them I said that.) But now that I'm a big sister, I'll have plenty to write about again. My little sister, Lois, was born a couple of days ago. Look, here she is with Mom and Dad.
She weighed 8lb 3oz and was 20 3/4 inches long. Just perfect! Not too chunky (like the gross kind of peanut butter), but plenty of skin on those little bones.
Mommy said she is almost the exact same size I was, maybe even a little bit bigger.
I got to go see her the next morning at the hospital and I couldn't take my eyes off of her. She is so cute!
She also really likes it when I give her hugs.
She even brought me a present to say she is happy to have me as her big sister. I don't know when she had the time to go shopping. She is so sweet!
We were all really happy that Grammy came to visit. She got here while I was asleep the same night the baby was born. She was such a nice surprise to wake up to.
After I saw Grammy holding baby Lois, I had to try it out. Then I gave her a big kiss while I had the chance. Daddy's big hairy arms didn't quite trust me yet, but he says I'll be able to hold her by myself soon.
After Grammy and I left to go home, Lois put on her first pair of jammies and of course a headband. I'm not going to let my first little sister go anywhere without a headband, at least if I have anything to say about it.
Remember when I told you she wasn't really that chunky? Well, I changed my mind. Check out those cheeks!
Finally, when I woke up from my nap and had stripped down to my nothings (my choice not theirs), Mommy, Daddy, and Lois were home and I got to hold her all by myself. Well, I guess with a little help from Grammy. So, here she is, people, Lois Elizabeth Taylor, the cutest little sister in the whole wide world. I can't wait for you all to meet her!
You'll have to wait an hour or two, though, I just sang her her first lullaby and put her to sleep.
