23

Tonight- I carried Tallon up to the hospital for a big brother class. It turned out to be a HUGE hit- they watched a short video, read a book and, he colored a little duck to help entertain Tess during diaper changes, etc and they talked about holding a baby and how to hold a baby and they even practiced with a doll. He learned that the first thing he needs to do is wash his hands and to always ask an adult for help when he wants to hold the baby. It was a fun hour and we both had a good time together interacting and talking about Baby Tess.

When I asked him if he wanted to go to the hospital- his first response was "Tess done growing Mommy?" He is soo sweet and I love that he is excited about his baby sister!

Also- when I kissed him bye as I was heading out the door- Tallon quickly ran to me and said "WAIT- I have to give Baby Tess a kiss bye-bye"!
