We are deep in the baby fog here. Who knows what day or time it is and who even cares? Mercifully Elise has been a good sleeper so far and we have been able to keep a fairly normal routine for Cordelia. However, the days are still running together and there is a strange sensation that time is moving forward with greater speed than usual while simultaneously creeping at a snail's pace.
Our days have been mellow. Eric is still home from work and that has been wonderful as well. I wish we were independently wealthy and could just hang out as a family forever; work never interfering with our time together.
The three of us have been looking at the newest member of our family and wondering just who this little lady is. Cordelia assures me that they will soon laugh until their bellies hurt. She has big plans for play and friendship. Eric and I wonder what kind of a person she will be.
More than anything I just hope for both of my girls that they live happy and fulfilled lives. I hope that I can help to facilitate that as a parent, that I can help my daughters to find joy, creativity, beauty, love and faith in the world. No pressure.
