Emily Paige has arrived!

The long awaited arrival of my little sister, Emily "Emmy" Paige, is finally here! She was born on April 8, 2009 at 11:06am. She was a whopping 7 pounds, 13 ounces, and 20 1/2" long! Mommy said she looks just like I did when I was born!

She had a few problems breathing in the beginning after swallowing some fluids during the delivery, so she had to spend 2 days in the NICU. She was on a breathing machine called C-Pap, an IV for fluids, and she had a little drainage tube in her mouth that went into her tummy. When most of her tubes were out, I got to see her for the first time through the window, and I kept saying to the nurse "Open the door please... I hold my baby sister!" She looked so sad there, and mommy & daddy had a hard time, but thankfully she got better really quick, and was able to go to mommy's room after just 2 days!

When Emily was back in mommy's room, she had lots of visitors come to hold her. Nannie & Grandpa, GG, Aunt Bridget & Uncle Kevin, and mommy's labor & delivery nurse, Sara, were some of the people who wanted to come and meet her... and me of course!

I got to visit mommy & Emmy every day at the "hosibal", and I LOVED holding her as much as I could! She has the tiniest toes, and she's SO cute! I know we're going to be best friends! Now I just have to think of a new name for OUR blog! Welcome to the world Emily!

Here's a little video of me meeting my baby sister for the first time... I was SO excited!
