Baby Margaret is Here!!!

My sister, Margaret Elise Rawlinson was safely born on 10/10/10 at 11:14 p.m. She weighed 5 pounds, 6 ounces and was 18 inches long. She came 2 weeks early because she couldn't wait to see me ;) I got really sick a few hours after Margaret was born, so I didn't get to go meet her at the hospital, but don't worry, Mommy and Daddy took a lot of pictures.

Here is Mommy right before Margaret was born
Mommy holding Margaret for the first time
Daddy holding Margaret the next morning. Poor Margaret had to spend the night in the incubator because she was so little and the doctors had to monitor Baby Margaret's body temperature and blood sugar.
Isn't she pretty?

Mommy and Baby Margaret taking a quick snooze at the hospital
Ready to leave the hospital. Look how small she is!
Mommy and Margaret at home. I was still at Gangi and Pop Pop's house because I was still sick - but couldn't wait to meet Margaret - until.......
I came home and met Baby Margaret. I was so sad because Mommy and Daddy were giving someone besides me attention. Can you believe it?!?
But, then Margaret gave me this super cool pink laptop as a thank you for being a great big sister.
I then realized Mommy and Daddy weren't replacing me, just brought me home a little friend. We are going to have a lot of fun together when she is older, but until then, I will just treat her as my baby doll. Giving her kisses
I love my new sister. Mommy, I want to hold her!
Sharing my big girl bed and pillow with Baby Margaret. She's my new best friend!
I helped Mommy give Margaret her first bath. She did NOT like it at all. Someday she will take baths with me when she gets bigger
So, what do I think of my new sister? I love her! I have been such a great big sister and have helped Mommy with her. She still sleeps a lot but is growing fast. She went to the doc yesterday and was already 5 pounds, 14 1/2 ounces and 19 inches long at 2 weeks old. It won't be long!
Uncle John, Uncle Andrew and Aunt Kelly came and visited me and Baby Margaret this weekend. I will post pics of our fun weekend together soon. I gotta go help Mommy with Baby Margaret now ;)
