We had the privilege of meeting baby Eleanora on Saturday and the baby fever ensued. Not for me (okay...maybe a little for me), but for Elise. We know she loves her "babies" at home - pushing them around all day in their bosher (stroller for anyone that isn't fluent in Elise) and making sure they always have their blankies. But we had no idea what her reaction would be when she had the chance to meet a real baby. One, I might add, that is not much bigger than the dolls she sleeps with. She instantly fell in love! Her first request? "See dat baby?" To which her uncle Joel (my arms were full of "dat baby" at the time) obliged her request and picked her up to so she could see his new bundle of joy. Her second request? "Hode dat baby?" Next came, "Rock dat baby?" She would have hugged, kissed, rocked, loved and "mommy-ed" that baby all day I think.
Lorie & Joel, we are so happy for you and excited for you to venture down the road of parenthood. Thank you so much for letting us visit you and meet your new baby girl. We can't wait to see her again.
