More visitors? Can it be true?
Yes! And best of all, one of the visitors is an invisible reader revealed! I was delighted to finally meet the fabulous Sue, aka Raspberry. How cool is that?
Jane, displaying her usual acumen, LOVED her. They got in some good hand cuddles, and shortly thereafter Sue had Jane blissed out and under her sway by way of an excellent head massage. The woman has a magic touch, and I think the hospital should seriously consider putting her on staff as an infant sleep therapist.
And guess who else came over to play?
Sarah was unbelievably well-behaved. Granted, she's a pretty good kid in general and Awesome Nurse Alyssa was enormously helpful with the kid-wrangling, but she was a superstar today. (I told her just that while we were in the pumping room and she said, "Actually, I'm a superHERO!" Yes, you are. I think someone needs her very supercape.)
Sarah scored all kinds of loot from Sue and the lovely play lady and even the promised challah (holla!) from Awesome Rabbi Susan.
It was a very nice day indeed. Jane was just as well-behaved as her sister, and made her SIX MONTH BIRTHDAY as good as I could have hoped for.
You read that right, invisible readers. You've been on this ride with me for six months. SIX. MONTHS. SIX! Can you believe it? I mean, how that is factually possible is entirely beyond my ability to comprehend, so I'm not even going to try. Well, I guess Jane was actually, what, fifteen days old when I fired this thing up, and I don't believe five and a half months is a recognized anniversary anywhere. Not even Hallmark has a card for that. But the baby, the baby is six months old and holy cow. Who could have guessed this is how we'd get here?
