My stuffy nose turned into a full blown cold today. So much for keeping baby healthy. My midwife came back today to check in on baby and mom. She says Piper is doing great. Hopefully, I will have some immunity to shorten the duration of what would be a normal cold. The kids came back home this evening and both of them are smitten with their baby sister. Blake is so much more maternal than I thought he was going to be (yes, friends who told me he has gotten to that age were correct!). Reade thinks she is a rubber toy just for him to bend, poke, and tug on. I need to watch him closely around her big toes.
Here is my cabbage patch kid:
