I have never had a baby; but I am pretty sure there is a reason younger women than I have babies! As I write this, I am just worn out and it is only 7 AM! I should lay back down and rest, as Vivian is in her crate and Ike asleep on his bed; but I am forcing myself to stay awake because I will have to return to work where nap taking at your desk is frowned upon. Must get use to the new schedule, although right now who is determining the schedule is yet to be resolved. Viv and Ike spent yesterday getting to know one another and Ike seems, if not enamoured of her, to at least tolerate her. Sometimes he even looks happy to have her around to play with! I think that when she gets bigger and can get as good as she gives, he will find her more fun. He is definitely enjoying having me running around the front yard multiple times a day. I start running, he chases, Vivian follows, they both pass me and then turn around and look at me with facial expressions that either say, “Hurry up” or “Gee, I hope she doesn’t have a heart attack!”. I will admit, running around the yard with dogs is way more fun then the exercise bicycle in the family room! So we begin day 4, Vivian style…I better go take a shower while she is still sleeping!
LOL!! I can see you out in the yard running with your “pack”. Just don’t fog up your glasses or you won’t be able to see anything…. Little Viv looks so tiny on the floor sleeping next to Ike. They are on their way to becoming fast friends and share a bond through-out their lives, where they will silently communicate. It is amazing to watch the body language, eye and facial gestures…. those are clues. Have a great day at work.
Oh my! You may never have been a mom, but you sound just like a mommy. You may be tired; but regardless, I can tell you already love those two ‘children” uncondtionally. The picture is precious and speaks a thousand words. Ike and Viv are siblings now and Ike may act like he doesn’t care but the closeness in which they are sleeping suggests Ike is protecting Viv. How lucky you all are!! Enjoy.
