Code Pink!

So we went together today to go see our new little cousin/niece. Oh my word is she cute! Check out her chin and that dimple.

We didn't want to overstay our welcome so we didn't stay too long. Brother and Sister were out of the room before me, which is typical, but when I got out the door I only saw Brother... no Sister.

Don't panic.

She actually disappears often... usually for only 30 seconds to 60 seconds and then we find her.

Well, we looked.

And looked.

And then we asked the nurses on the labor and delivery floor if they had seen a cute little 5 year-old girl wearing pink...

They hadn't seen her either.

I went to the elevator and checked the lobby and then outside near the car.


Now I am panicking!

I go back up to the labor and delivery floor and tell the nurses that I can't find her still. I give them a description and the call out a code pink over the speakers throughout the entire hospital and then lock down the doors so no one can leave or come in.

I am actually freaking out at this point but I have to look calm because Brother is starting to panic.

Then after what seemed like an hour (probably 5 minutes) a nurse announced that she had found Sister behind a cart hiding in a corner just a hallway away from where I was.

Three of the nurses began to cry.

My tears began to fall.

Brother began to wimper.

Baby started laughing...

ya, laughing. She was just so excited to see her sister.

This all happened about 2 hours ago and I am still shaking.

Thank goodness it was all preceded by a sweet visit with another pink sweetie. (smile)

How scary. I have had that happen before. Sometimes I dream about loosing Daniel and not being able to find him.

How terrifying. I'm glad it only lasted 5 minutes even though I'm sure it felt like hours! Darling baby pics too!
