So I had to get creative with things to keep her busy. For most of the day we ended up making paper puppets of every single family member and then backgrounds and putting on a little play. I will have to get these from her to scan because they are so cute. Then we made her new baby sister a birthday card with a drawing of a cake with no candles because as she explained you only get candles starting at one year old and since she was just born - no candles.
All of Maiya's blood checks went well and so did her insulin shot. She even said I did a good job! Yay! Praise from a 5 year old is true praise, because they don't lie!
Around 6:30pm we took Maiya to see her new baby sister, Madison, and the look on Maiya's face when she saw her was priceless! She was so excited!
OK now I have lots of work to catch up on. I am still recovering from yesterday. It was fun, exciting and exhausting all rolled into one day.
get some rest, little auntie - xo
Congratulations to everyone!! I am off to San Diego for the birth of our first Grandson Tomorrow. Little boys are a whole new world for me =) Time to stock up on "boy "color papers and craft supplies
maybe next time you get a cape and a longer flight off the ground in maiya's drawing?! you sure had a superhero day- bet someday maiya will be telling madison's kids about your day!
add me to the hard boiling eggs quandry - been looking for a new "recipe" for the last 2 yrs. tried something new this year and finally they weren't so grey! just hard to peel :(
best to all, and some r&r to you!
Congratulations to you and your family for the new baby born :)
