Big brother meets little sister for the first time
Grandma Marshall was there to help us with the big moment. She brought us another gift for Vivi to give Owen ~ a Frosty the Snowman (his favorite!) stuffed toy. Ben picked him up from daycare and we had Vivian upstairs with Grandma while I waited in the family room. I hadn't seen Owen in four days and wanted so much just to hug and kiss him.
I heard the front door open and I called out to Owen. He came running in and said, "Mommy!", but when I asked for a hug he said, "No, I don't want a hug". :( Made me sad, but I knew I'd get one eventually.
Ben went upstairs to get Vivi and Grandma took the camera to capture the moment for us. Owen was excited to meet her, but he wasn't interested for long. I think Ben and I thought it would be more of a big deal than it actually turned out to be. But that is a good thing, because Owen still has a runny nose and we don't want him getting his sister sick. The rest of the day he just played with Daddy and Mommy and didn't really notice Vivian that much at all. He went to bed early and we'll see what happens tomorrow...
