Thank you all for your kind comments, texts, emails and phone calls to congratulate us on the newest member of our family. We are really excited to specialize in girls!
Cordelia is excited and even has a vague idea of what she is excited about. She has been talking to her baby sister in my tummy.
This morning she told me she was playing hide and seek with the bananas...the ones that are sitting immobile on the kitchen counter. I couldn't be happier to provide her with a sibling, because I am certain that the bananas will never make good hide and seek players.
Cordelia also informed me that from now on she will be called Anglecake and the baby will be Gingersnap.
Eric is very happy to be a father of two girls although I think he is planning to become a bodybuilder or collector of medieval weaponry as now he has to worry about getting two girls through their teen years, fending off the boys. I expect that he will have a full head of shimmering white hair within the next few years.
As for me, I am so thrilled to watch these two girls develop their own unique sister relationship. My deepest dream is that they will be close throughout their whole lives.
