photos and a bedtime story

First the photos.

Zoe awake at about 9 days old, and Piper playing last week. For Piper, sunglasses are a favorite accessory, but are never to be worn. They are for peek-a-boo games.

Now the bedtime story.

Piper likes her crib. In the mornings, and after naps, she wants to spend at least 20 minutes in her crib playing, and is not happy if I come get her too soon. Lately when she's tired she tries to climb IN to the crib. Its very amusing. Tonight I was tending to Zoe so Brandon put her to sleep. I kissed her goodnight, and she and he sat in the reading chair for the routine: read, turn off light, go to bed. Usually the parent is in charge and walks the child through this. Tonight, though, tonight less than a minute after I shut the door, Piper leaned over to the touch lamp, turned off the light, hopped out of Brandon's lap, walked to her crib in the dark and started trying to climb in saying "night night, night night." That's my girl.

she's here!

She's actually been here awhile, I'm just finally crawling back to the computer. Two babies is harder than just one. Anyway, we had a WILD first week complete with rogue epidurals, an ER trip and MRI, a ruptured eardrum, sinus infections, jaundice, and lasers. But, its been three weeks and we are getting the hang of it, I think. Sleeping is non-existent as expected, but Zoe is a great eater, nursing is okay for me, and Piper is attacking less and kissing more. Here's a picture.
