2 hour nap

Today I babysat for a friend who has a 5 month old little girl. Abbie dropped off her little girl Ella during my girls nap time. When I heard Leland starting to wake up I went into our room where she was sleeping. I was holding Ella.

Leland sat up and looked at me with big eyes and asks, "Is that my baby brother?"
Me: "No sweetie. This is our friend Ella who is just here to play."
Leland bursts into tears and says "I really want a baby brother. Why can't that baby be my baby brother?"

Seriously my girl wants another baby so bad, and it better be a boy.

I sure wish that whenever our next baby does come, he/she would appear during a 2 hour nap. No 9 months of pregnancy, no labor, and no long wait. Wouldn't that be nice?


  1. That is so funny! What a sweetheart! I TOTALLY wish they came during a 2 hour nap. And I know Lani would sure love that right now!

  2. I would be TOTALLY up for 2 hour nap babies! I could throw up for 2 hours!

  3. That is hilarious! Cole came to us within 6 hours... that is pretty close. I must say, that is an AWESOME part of adopting. The fact that within 6 hours I went from no baby anywhere in the works to holding my new little angel. That really was so cool!

  4. Oh my gosh, that is haliorious! So cute Leland wanting a baby brother. But that is really scary incase you do have another girl! But maybe she is getting the divine revelation!

  5. Ya... maybe I should have put her in a pink dress. I'm sure the blue dress made it all the more confusing.
