A New Sibling!

Hi everyone! How have you been? I hope you had an awesome school holiday! Did you know that my Mommy was pregnant? Well, she was! At around six in the morning, she woke me up and said she might be going into labour. You can bet I got up right away! I grabbed my hospital bag and hopped into the car. On the way to the hospital, Daddy said we needed to stop at the gas station to fill up the car. Talk about being unprepared!

When we reached the hospital, the nurse said I could not go in to the delivery roon with Mommy because I might get scared and cry or scream. That was really silly and unfair! Mommy's gynae had actually said I could go in with her. But even though I said that I would definitely not be crawling around the room weeping with fear, she said I should sit outside in the visitors' lounge. So I unhappily trudged outside, and dropped myself into the seat. Daddy soon came upstairs to the lounge and sat with me to keep me company.

After awhile, we saw two nurses pushing Mommy and the baby to a room for them to rest. I chased after them! When I went inside, I handed her a bunch of flowers that Daddy and I had gotten from the florist earlier on. The room was quite nice! A big screen TV, a wide couch and a bed with all sorts of buttons for Mommy. "Praise the Lord! We have a baby brother!" Ro and I sang, as we jumped around excitedly.

Later on, a nurse came in and asked us what we wanted for lunch and dinner. The food wasn't bad, for a hospital anyway.

I watched some TV and listened to some relaxing music. I ended up lounging about and reading a lot. Then Mommy let us take a trip down the hall to peek inside the nursery at all the newborn babies. When I saw the cute little babies, I almost fainted at their adorability. Awwww! And now I can help take care of our own baby! Yippee!

I went back into the room, and crawled into bed with Mommy. We talked and read and watched some movies together. Ro and I played together too, but Mommy told us we had to be quiet just in case our voices carried.

Later in the evening, I decided to take my bath since it had been a long day and I was so sweaty. The bathroom was big, with a huge shower and nice body lotion and shampoo -- almost like a hotel! I changed into my pyjamas which I had packed in my hospital bag.

I was going to sleep on the sofa bed (there wasn't enough space for Ro, so Daddy took her home for the night), but it was super cold there because the air-conditioner was blowing like crazy on it. So Mommy invited me to sleep in her bed with her -- yay! I climbed in and snuggled up under the cozy blankets!

Here's a picture of me blogging about everything that happened!

And here's a picture of me with my baby brother! His name is Jacob and we call him Jake for short. Mommy says I can post more pictures of him when he's less sleepy looking. My baby care handbook said that babies like looking at black-and-white, high contrast things more than multi-coloured ones. So I painted a picture of a chess board for him. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE HIM!

OK, see you soon! I have to go help carry Jakey now! Thanks for dropping by!

  2. Congratulations! This is the best news of the day! I am so happy for you and all your family. And I am thrilled that your mom and the baby are both well. Having a baby is a big job! And you are a wonderful helper, and a loving big sister. I bet your mom and dad are so proud of you. Your baby brother is adorable, and I'll bet he will love having two older sisters. Thank you for sharing the news and these great images. This had made my day :)

    * And I laughed out loud at your dad needing to stop for gas. That is just too funny! *
