First off though, we woke up to SNOW! ARGGGHHHHH!!!!
Allegra and I trekked through it this morning, on down to Green Bay. Our first stop was at the little florist shop on 9th St, (Parmentiers) as we try to keep our business local with small owners, rather than big chain stores. While they were making up some pretty blue flowers and balloons, the nice lady gave little Allegra a pink carnation of her very own! Now THAT is caring about your customers!
Allegra wrote a letter to her baby brother, Mason. She put it in an envelope, licked it shut and decorated it! Here is Daddy reading the letter to Mason, with Allegra proudly looking on.
Mommy gave Allegra a ride up and down on this crazy hospital bed!! Don't ALL kids love to do that? (and some grownups too?)
The little guy's toes are very very long, as are his fingers too. Allegra had to check them all out, and count them, making sure there are 10 of each. Daddy Dan is showing the keepsake footprints on the back of the hospital birth certificate. How cute is that?
Allegra got to goof around in the baby basinette,
doing a bit of luge racing. LOL
(the nurses let her do it!)
And of course she got in some kisses for her baby brother too.
And yes, Granmuddah never would pass up a chance to cuddle a sweet new baby....
But Granmuddah worked her magic and soon had them BOTH napping,
and the two cats too! Whew what a day.
Tomorrow Allegra goes back home to join up with
her Mommy, Daddy and new baby brother!
Then waiting any day for Erin and Mark to go into labor next,
while Chelsea gets to come and hang out with us too!
