little odin arrived today! there is nothing as joyful as a newborn to bring everyone together. we laughed, giggled and oodled, and then laughed some more. i didn’t want to see him go down for his nap.
he’s only two months old, but he seems so alert, and fully aware and curious of his new surroundings. ren and eric are so calm and in tune with his needs. it’s no wonder he’s such a good baby.
this was the first time we gathered as a family with brian and i no longer the perfect, married couple. it was very much as i had envisioned it – he and i enjoying each and every precious moment with our beautiful children and grandchild. you could so naturally feel the love. i sympathized with how he may have been feeling differently with our new relationship, but as i focused on simply loving them all, grateful for our blessings, i could see that it is possible for love to never end.
