36 Hours

For two days and one night, I shared Clara's space.
She mostly slept and ate while her Daddy, Mama, and I packed boxes.
But for a brief evening spell, she was awake and enchanting and in my arms.
 As of now, she continues to fly past her health checks, and is pretty close to the size of my firstborn on the day he came home from the hospital... but still tiny... he was only 5 pounds 4 ounces.

It is truly amazing how quickly the time goes by. He is a giant now, and I had a hard time, as I held Clara, wrapping my brain around the fact that he was so teeny not so many years ago.

While her parents grabbed a quick soak in the hot tub, I introduced our newest family member to a few of my favorite things... Whiskey Sours, Raspberries, and Star Trek the Next Generation.

She decided these things were all very exciting.
Then we went back to packing boxes.
 Which she thought was very boring, and shortly after she fell fast asleep.
Now I'm back home with my own babies and a house that has been neglected for two days and one night.

Guess I had better get busy.
