a new addition

So, the newest addition to our family is almost 2 weeks old. Addisyn Lydia May Wiens was born at 8:45 am on December 2. This is a good thing and I'm thankful for her safe and healthy arrival.

With her arrival also came some babysitting responsibilities. On the 4th of December my nieces and nephew had a sleepover at our house. We jumped and ran and made blanket tents and made rice krispy squares and watched a movie and ate popcorn and had story time... things were going quite well until...

Berlin and Kaityn wanted to go home. The tears were streaming down their cheeks and they refused to be comforted (for a while). And then Rowan didn't want to sleep in the big bed, he wanted to be in the same room as the girls. Well, an energetic, enthusiastic and dramatic reading of Andrew's Loose Tooth (by yours truly) seemed to settle everyone's spirits and then a short cuddle with some familiar songs sung by yours truly made everyone fall asleep.

I finished tucking the girls in and then moved Rowan back to "his" bed and then I also hit the hay (those kids don't get that saturdays are for sleeping in). Anyhow, when Rowan woke up he told Oma that "I falled asleep in the room with Kaityn and Berlin but I waked up in the special room."

Awww, you are a wonderful Auntie. I just became an Auntie last night when my sister Jane had her twins! So exciting.
