Last Friday we took Jonah to the Hospital to meet Baby Eli! When we walked in the lobby, we saw Whest, Dara and Molly. Jonah was immediately teased! He acted like he didn't want to have anything to do with her but knelt down and just stared at her. We finally convinced him to sit on the couch by her but he remained completely teased.
Although he was somewhat timid, Molly was completely thrilled to be near him. She just giggled and clapped her hands. It was really sweet. We did finally convince him to put his arm around her. He looked up at his dad with a grin on his face.
After we visited with them for a while, we headed upstairs to see Josh, Amanda and Eli. We met everyone leaving the room because Eli was headed to the nursery and Josh and Amanda were going to rest. So, we started to leave too but Josh told us to come in. We knew they were tired so we only stayed for a little bit. Jonah was so happy to see Josh and Manna. He loves them so much. He climbed right up on Manna's bed to give her hugs. You can see from the smile on her face that she was pretty happy about seeing him too!
After giving Manna hugs and kisses, he headed straight for Josh. He told them both that he loved them and then we headed home. We were all concerned how he would react to the baby being on the outside instead of in Manna's tummy. That never concerned him in the least. Anytime someone asks where Eli came from, Jonah says "Eli came from Manna's belly!"
