Mommy has been an amazing trooper ... doing her best to keep O content and helping O remain as well rested as possible. This is definitely a major endeavor on Mommy's part. Amazingly, Mommy remains so calm and comforting through it all. Clearly, Mommy O was born to parent. Daddy says, let me push the vacuum and wash bottles - at least for those tasks I can understand what to do. We are getting through it and reminding ourselves that this too shall pass.
We still hope/plan to come to the family reunion on Sunday. O will call the shots on when, how long and in what form. The pediatrician was okay with us going but instructed us not to play "pass the baby" and to have people refrain from stroking her cheek or touching her hands. I will tell you, that is hard with a baby as cute as O!!! As we tell the young nieces and nephews, look with your eyes rather than your hands. Certainly by next year we will be ready to have anyone willing to take her off our hands to take her!!! Hope to see many of you on Sunday.
