Penny Meets Eloise

As soon as Penny woke up from her afternoon nap, Aunt Stephanie, brought her to the hospital to meet her little sister.  I had Andrew take Eloise to the nursery so I could spend a few minutes alone with Penny. This is something all the books and blogs I read in preparation for two kids told me to do so that Penny wouldn't feel replaced by the new baby.  In hindsight, it probably was not necessary.  I think Penny is too little to feel replaced and she had just seen me that morning, one of the perks of having a C-Section!  I hadn't been away for very long at this point.

Meanwhile, Eloise was in the nursery where the nurses took some vitals and got her little footprints.

My sisters had not seen Eloise yet so they stood my the nursery window and a nurse kindly held her up so they could catch a glimpse.
Andrew brought her back and Penny got her first peek at Eloise.
We have been talking a lot about babies lately, so Penny was pretty excited to see a real baby up close.  She gave Eloise a few kisses.
And admired her hat.
Then Penny found her mouth and kept poking at it saying, "MOUTH! MOUTH!"
Then she just observed.
And suddenly, we became a family of four!
