Little Chloe and Mommy are asleep.We're in the living room while Aunt
Dena and Grandma Diane sleep in the main bedroom. Can't possible explain
how valuable a few extra hands are.
Simple things, like dinner or an extra hand to change a diaper. The end-goal
is a little more sleep for mommy, but that's hard when she still has to
get up and feed every three hours.
Cut Star Wars: episode 1 a little short so mommy could get some sleep.
She's such a good mommy. Tireless, even when she's the most tired.
She's been sleeping with Chloe on her chest. The warmth of your body and
the sound of your heartbeat make her feel comfortable, safe.
Today I took Diane and Dena around SF for a tour. We went to Union square,
shopping around downtown, fisherman's warf and finally at Golden Gate
bridge. I hadn't even been on the bridge since I've been here. I've only
been over it by vehicle.
I still can't believe how short the railing is. I kept wondering about
how I would hold little Chloe and cross the bridge. I saw another daddy
holding his baby as he looked over the railing. I was scared to death
to watch him. With the wind, I thought it could blow anything away at
we have alot of time before we have to take her any place like that.
she's so fragile, so little still.
When I put her on our bed, she's dwarfed by it's size.
