I was at Kelli’s yesterday and hope to go to her house again either Saturday or Sunday. We don’t have firm plans yet.
That means I wasn’t home and was away from the computer…and if I’m away from the computer, that means…no blog posts. I hate to do that to you all so instead I’ll just make it short.
Early Wednesday evening I took Georgie home to mom, dad, and the boys. This is the first time she’s seen them. They were born on April 11th and stayed in the hospital through the 24th of April. Georgie has been staying with me from the 23rd through the 28th. She got the flu and we wanted to keep her away from the boys to hopefully keep them from getting sick.
So this is the moment she met them. She’s normally a chatty little girl but oh my, she was in shocked silence. If you look at her expression, that’s everything. She was joy-filled.
She just had to touch them. For those of you trying to keep track, Eli is in stripes. Emmett is in yellow. You can see their complexion is very different.
If you could have seen Kelli’s face…it was exactly the same as Georgie’s only in adult form.
Kelli has longed to be a mom. She got married in her later 20’s then ended up with fertility issues. Seeing a mom, who went through the monthly disappoints now suddenly with three wonderful babies makes me all teary-eyed and so VERY THANKFUL!!
It’s been a joy to have Georgie these last few days…even with her puking and being sick. I’ve gotten closer to her and I appreciated the time. Hearing her squeal when I said we were going to her house so she could see Eli and Emmett was priceless. She was seriously pulsating with complete joy.
As for me…there still won’t be baby holding for me yet. I caught a cold so I’ve resigned myself to going to Kelli’s to help but I’m doing exciting stuff like organizing closest, moving stuff up and down the stairs, and being Kelli’s gopher. It’s all good. It’s all stuff that can be done without passing on my cold. We’re going to have these two little guys in our lives for a very long time. I can wait a week or so until my cold is better. In the meantime, I’ll be snapping pictures and soaking up the joy that surrounds me.
