Visiting with Titi and Baby E

We headed to a little bit south this weekend to visit with Titi and new baby E. Big girl E was very excited or the visit, she's been waiting to see Titi for a long time, and was very excited to meet baby E. I was curious to see how she reacted to a baby, but she loved every minute of it. She liked checking out baby E's toes, and commented that "Baby E tiny toes, E big toes" and that baby E was tiny. At day care and when we have friends over E is always very concerned that they have what they need. She made sure to bring baby E her nook whenever she found it.

She also kept getting up from the dinner table to check on baby E, she saw baby E having some milk, and didn't react badly. I was concerned that the sight of a baby nursing might upset her.

After meeting baby E, we headed to our hotel for some swimming. It was a bit late in the night for Titi and E to swim, but both girls had a great time swimming with their dads. They both liked jumping in the water, and splashing.

After all the excitement of the day, E didn't sleep well at all. She woke up for the day at 2:30 AM. She was calm for a little while, but after a short calm period, she was raring to go. Titi gave E two sesame street characters, and E had to sleep with them in her bed. Then, for awhile, she was calm if she laid on me and held the characters, but every time she'd relax, she'd drop one, which set her off screaming.

So, E and I were the first customers at the continental breakfast, where she got a rare treat, Froot Loops. We wandered the hotel for awhile, and then E and dada wandered. E got to play with some of Titi's toys, and then visit with baby E again. Finally, Titi and E went swimming with their mommas and had a great time playing with Titi's dolls. Their favorite activity was dipping the doll's hair into the water, and then "painting" with it.

E took her nap shortly after swimming, and went home with dada. She was exhausted for the night, at yoga class she was content to sit on my lap or be held for most of it. Only at the end did she start running around. Fortunately for everyone it was an early bed time.

This is what E looked like for most of the evening:
