May 8, 2008

At 3:35p.m. Connor James Pope was born.

The days following have been quite interesting! While Mom and Connor were in the hospital I was watching his big sister Hala! The first day or two were fun...we went to the park...cleaned up Auntie Jenny's house...watched Alvin and The Chipmunks..we got our nails done...visited my Dad a.k.a. Uncle Buck...By Saturday my patience got a little scarce. I was sick, and I really didn't feel good. And Mahala LOVES to negotiate. Her best line is after I've told her she has 10 minutes of TV before bedtime...she says "How about 10 + 10 minutes?" She cracks me up! Saturday was Unky Mike's birthday...and I just couldn't get myself out of bed to run our errands. So, as I laid down Mikey was the cutest Unky! He took her outside and watered the flowers and let her run wild. I heard hear the pure excitement in her voice! Even though I was sick I had a great weekend with her, and I wouldn't have missed it for the world! I can't wait till Connor get a little bigger so him and I can have an adventure together!
