What Jamie wants....isn't always what she gets!

OK, so I don't know how many of you are familiar with my little Angel Jamie. When she was a baby, I wanted to throw her through a window because she was a screamer! I don't mean like not happy screaming, I mean like Jurassic Park soundtrack-worthy screamer... Luckily she survived those years, so that she could be so helpful on Thursday with my Wife.

Janet was fortunate enough to do most all of her laboring at home, so Jamie was able to be right there by her side, ALL DAY LONG! When Janet was laboring on the bed, Jamie would rub her feet or tickle her leg. When Janet was in the birth pool, Jamie would pour water on her back with a little green cup. When Janet was leaned forward, Jamie would tickle her shoulders or brush her hair. It was one of the cutest things I have ever seen.

So Friday morning when Hailey, Hannah, C.J., Anthony, and Jamie were meeting their new little brother Jonah they were great. Hailey would comment on how tiny his ears were, C.J. would laugh at his sneeze, Hannah gave a play-by-play on the amount of eyeball which was visible at any given time, and Anthony just starred. Jamie was the last one to come in, and Janet asked if she wanted to come meet her little Brother (a boy) Jonah. She came over to the bed, and with those big eyes (see attached photo for example of said expression) and quietly said "But I wanted a girl..."

After much discussion, and mommying however, Jamie has decided that a little brother will do just fine!
