Quality Time

peekaboo_small.jpgI've spent the last couple days home with Molly as Denise worked. It's been wonderful and exhausting. You wouldn't think feeding and changing a little one every three hours would wear you out, but it does.

She wakes and fidgets when she gets hungry, even crying a little bit in a cute, sighing, premie kind of way. Her cheeks are getting fat, and she's definitely filled out in the last two weeks into a little baby rather than the little old man she resembled at first. Her eyes are beginning to stay fixed on objects, and her irises are turning a dark gray-blue.

I get up several times a night to check on her. It's kind of a catch-22: if she's making sounds, I check if something's wrong; if I don't hear any sounds, I check if something's wrong. I guess I should get used to that, eh?

Bryan and Denise,

Yes, on the catch-22.....the first time Brad slept 6 hours straight, I woke up with a startle, began to panic, as I frantically tried to carefully determine if he was still breathing. He was still breathing....as was I!

As Molly sleeps for longer periods of time, it won't be so disconcerting.

Yall are doing great....

Love you,

Aunt Susan
