Big News!!

Life was good... I was eating lamb chops...

and ice cream cones...

Then last Wednesday (August 13), I woke up to my Aunt Libby. My parents were gone. My Aunt Janelle came and got me and Libby and they took me to the big brick building again. This time when I got there my mom was in one of the rooms and had on the hospital dress. She looked really tired and she was kind of pale. My Mumsy was there too and everyone kept looking at this little baby...

They kept showing me this little baby and I thought, "What's the big deal? I've seen lots of babies..."

Daddy told me that the baby's name was Alice Gertrude Rydalch. Wow, we have the same last name. She had really small wrinkly feet and really long skinny hands. They said she was a little smaller than I was as a baby - 7 pounds 11 ounces and 20 1/4 inches long. They said she was my sister, which I don't really understand.

At first, she cried some, but then she was pretty quiet and I decided maybe she was OK.

I got to hold her and that was fun, but she's kind of heavy.

Mom changed her out of her hospital clothes and into a cute outfit.

Then they put her in a car seat. She screamed. I thought it was kind of funny.

Do you know what they did next?!?? They brought her home with us. What??!! I don't know how long she's staying, but the longer she's here, the more I like her. I guess that living with my new baby sister will be OK.


  1. She's gorgeous! Congrats!


  2. Wow she is so beautiful! Can't wait to meet her. Hope all is going well for you all. Congratulations!

  3. She is a keeper. You'll have to bring her into the office when you can. We will all love to see her!

  4. Wow, Clyde!! Your little sister is something else!!! My mommy keeps making a weird oooh and ahhhh face when she looks at the pictures of you two on your blog. I just want to know if she has a date for prom yet (the class of 2025 rocks!)

    Congratulations on the sister, she's extraordinary.
