Yesterday, Mommy and I went to Jared's house so that we could see how Ms. Amy was doing and meet Jared's new baby sister. We didn't get a picture because Mommy was holding baby Jayci, but you can see pictures on Ella's blog here.
For the first few minutes of our visit, I played with Jared and his trains, but after that, I realized I was very interested in the baby. Jared invited me to go outside, and I told him, "No, thank you!" He didn't understand, but I really wanted to look at Jayci and touch all her tiny parts. I rubbed her hair and touched her nose and ears and forehead and elbow. I got to see her hands, which were covered by little mitts, and her feet, which were covered by socks. I got to touch her parts because I had washed my hands, but Mommy would not let me touch her eyes. She said it was a special treat to be able to touch a baby. Jayci was very, very, soft, especially her hair. She slept through our whole visit.
After we got home, I wanted to go look at the things in the nursery that our baby will wear. They are things I wore when I was a baby, too. I don't know all about what it's going to be like to be a big brother, but I got a good idea at Jared's house. He has a girl baby, but I am convinced that I am going to have a boy baby at our house. Mommy and Daddy remind me that we will love whatever baby God gives us, and I'm sure that's true, but I still hope it's a boy.
