My First Blogging Day

This is my first post and Adam is helping me type while I tell him what to say.

Our day started when we went to an appointment with Mommy and Adam. When Mommy went in to the meeting, Adam, Brandon and I watched "Annie" in the car. After the appointment, we went to eat. We ate pizza at Hawthorne Pizza and I ate a salad and one piece of pizza. I thought the pizza was really good, but it was really cold inside. Brandon was freaking out.

After we ate, we went to the hospital to see Kayleigh. When we first got there, we had to wash our hands really good. Then we had to get the aprons on. Then we have to put alcohol/hand sanitizer on so all the germs are killed. We went back to where Kayleigh was and the nurse offered me a chair. She lowered the incubator so I could see much better. She had a small poop earlier today. Adam took a picture of Kayleigh and I. This was my first picture with Kayleigh without Brandon in the photo. We left early because I had to pee really bad and she was sleepy anyways.

When we got home, I had to pee again really bad. haha. Adam and I worked on this blog together and later we are going to eat dinner and watch tv.

Thank you for reading my first post and I will be sure to post more soon.

Peace :)

Hi there Allyson your blog is so awesome. I will be sure to check for updates everyday. How exciting to have a little sister, just wait till she comes home and you get to play with her and help feed her. You are doing such a great job at being a big sister already.

Great blog, Allyson! I love to read new updates about your baby sister, and I can't wait to hear about how things are going for you!

Hi Allyson,
I know your mommy from a Preemie message board that she writes on and I have been keeping up with your baby sister. I teach fourth grade in NM. I have a little girl who is now 16 months old and was born 2 1/2 months early. My son was 5 yrs. old at the time and it was very hard for him to see her in the hospital for so long. Now he is a great big brother and they love playing with each other. I hope your little sister gets strong quickly so you can enjoy her at home. Congratulations!!!

Hi Allyson! It was great to get to read your blog. I have been keeping up reading about your mom and step-dad for a long time now because I have a baby due in September and we were on the same message boards at BabyCenter. I am so glad to know Kayleigh has such an awesome big sister who loves her a whole lot and will take good care of her! I know you and Brandon will be terrific with Kayleigh! I'm so glad to hear that you want to be a teacher when you grow up. I teach fourth grade at an elementary school. Fourth graders are the best! I'll be praying for Kayleigh to grow a lot so she can come home with you and Brandon real soon!

Hey Allyson,

I've been following your little sister's story since before she was even born yet. I was excited to hear that you had a blog now, too.

I just watched Annie with my daughter the other day. That's a fun movie. Did you watch the newer version, or the old one from the 1980's? I heard the new one is really great, but I haven't seen it yet.

I bet things are kind of crazy at your house with your mom and stepdad having to spend so much time at the hospital, but it sure sounds like you and your brother have been good sports about it.

Have a great day!
