Due to the current rules established by hospitals, children under the age of 18 are not allowed into certain areas. So the Pep was not allowed into our room to see his long awaited baby brother. This was the day we brought baby Lucas home from the hospital. I have never seen the Pep so proud.
I will never forget the look on Pep’s face when we pulled up. He ran to the car, disregarding his mom of course, ripped open the back door and jumped up onto the seat to say hello to his baby brother for the first time. “Wow”, he said, “he is so much smaller than I thought he would be!”
Now, the Pep has no reason to beg me for a sibling or cry to me about how he is all alone.
How thankful I am to be home and so so very glad it is all over with! ;]
