The Cat in the Hat.....

The Cat in the Hat made a rare appearance today. He came out of retirement to visit Baby Aiden, Eddie and Jackie at the hospital. The nurses were very perplexed as to why my husband was donning a mask and gloves, but we did it fast enough that nobody stopped us! :-) TOTALLY worth it to see the shocked/scared look on Eddie's face when the Cat walked into the room. (For those of you who have no idea of what I'm talking about-- it's a family joke-- we used to have this scary Cat in the Hat doll that we would pass back and forth whenever something important happened in our lives-- graduations, weddings, new homes. I decided to take it to the next level and have someone-- that would be Dave-- be the Cat in the Hat.. Much scarier. I know-- twisted, isn't it?)

Alex was confused as to why her mommy was holding another baby, but she took it all in stride. She was dressed in the cute little heart romper that Grandma Jones mailed her! Uncle Willy came with us, and somehow was able to navigate rush hour traffic and get us home safely, even with a squalling unhappy panda in the back carseat (she was very tired from a long day).
