Miles and Vivienne Meet Evelyn

The first thing that Evelyn did when she was born was to poop.  The first time Daddy held her, she peed on him - seriously peed on him through a diaper somehow.  I'm sensing a trend here...

It took a while for them to move us to the Recovery Room, but we were just enjoying our time with our newest daughter.  They took her to the nursery to bathe her while we were moved to our new room.

Once we got there, we settled in with our bags and tried to get some rest.  I had so much adrenaline going through my body that I was still very shaky and spun up.  It took a while, but I think we were eventually able to get some cat naps in between all the knocks on the door to get some rest.

Daddy and his littlest girl
My mom was our first visitor.  She came to the hospital after putting Miles and Vivienne down for their naps at her house.  She arrived around 1:30 and was able to meet her newest granddaughter for the first time.  She only stayed for a short time, and then returned home to get the kids with my dad.

Just before 4 pm, Grandma and Granddad brought Miles and Vivienne to the hospital to meet this baby that they had been hearing so much about over the past nine months.  When they came into the room, they seemed very excited to see us, and Vivienne was immediately enamored with her.  She crawled up on the bed and said "baby" quite a few times.  We got some great video of that moment that I'll put into another post.

Pointing out Evelyn's nose, ears, eyes and mouth
Meanwhile, Miles seemed completely oblivious to the fact that Mommy or Evelyn were there.  He just wanted to play in the privacy curtain that was hanging just inside the door of our room.  Miles and Vivienne spent quite a lot of time running back and forth through the curtain and giggling and squealing up a storm.  Needless to say, they both seemed to really enjoy their first visit to the hospital.

More interested in saying "cheese" than meeting his sister

  1. Sweet! I hope it continues to be a smooth transition. I can just see Miles playing and giggling - I have a feeling that might be Will's m.o. too.
