hello Baby!

Hello everybody!!! How are you? It's me, Rebecca, from My Amazing Days! I'm so excited!! See the picture above? Yes! My baby brother has been born! His name is Jacob and he is sooooooooooooooooooooo cute! This picture shows cards that Ro and I made in the hospital room. The one in front is by me, and the one behind is by Ro!

Mommy let us stay with her while she was in the hospital. Let me share with you some pictures! Here you can see me waiting outside for her while she was in labour. I was really sad that they wouldn't let me go in with her. They said I was too young and would be scared. That was really dumb. Sometimes grown-ups don't get kids at all.

The hospital room wasn't very big, but it was quite nice. We could almost pretend we were on a hotel staycation. Well, almost. Here Ro and I are watching Monster High on Daddy's tablet.

We read and watched a lot of TV because there wasn't much else to do. Mommy's bed was too small to fit Ro and me in beside her, so Ro had to sit facing us.

We did a lot of drawing too. This is from a book Ro made for Mommy and our brother.

I have discovered that hospital food can be quite blah.

But not always. This was my breakfast.

And lunch.

I saw this lying on the table and asked Mommy what it was. She said it was the times of her contractions! She said that after awhile she felt that they were real contractions and not fake ones, so she went to the hospital.

Here is a picture of me! Do you know what I am doing? Yes -- blogging!!

I found this picture of me from four years ago. I am sitting on Mommy's bed in the same hospital. Yes, this was when Ro was born!

And this is me now! 

We are all home now. Here I am with Jake. I love carrying him and feeling his soft skin and hair. I love to just sit with him too! Mommy says I can take more pictures of Jakey when he is less sleepy looking. She says thank you so much for all your kind wishes and emails. She says Jakey arrived exactly on his 40-week due date, sparing her the pain of paying for yet another gynae visit. She says her labour and delivery were smooth and easy, and Baby is perfectly healthy and fine, praise the Lord! She also says she has stitches "down there" and pooping is just not fun at all.

I am quite busy helping Mommy with Jakey so I will probably take awhile to post things. I hope all of you are happy and doing fine! Thank you for visiting! See you again soon!!

A few more pictures here!
