It's all relative

Day 10 (or 18) of Blog365.

Yesterday marked two weeks since Caytie and mWAK added Baby D to their family. Wednesday evening Cate and both kids visited our church choir rehearsal, staying for almost an hout. D even endured being passed through the alto section while we were making noise rehearsing. Perspective is an amazing thing: hearing D's stats right after he was born, I thought, "What a good-sized-almost-big baby!" But after living with and tossing around a 3-year-old, 8lbs 14oz is teeny, tiny, and downright pocket-sized. B impressed many by folding herself up into the baby seat - possibly a foreshadowing of vocation? Factoid: New Baby Smell has to be the most optimistic(?) smell around(to clarify, that's the smell on top of the head). Mmm.

Ch-ch-ch-Chia update: I'm almost afraid to sleep with my eyes closed, this plant is sprouting so quickly! As soon as it starts asking for blood sacrifice à la Audrey II, it's outta here.

I couldn't believe we stayed that long! Time flies when you are having fun, right?! :)

Oh, he's darling! And it's so true about those relative weights. My second (at 9 lbs 3 oz) felt so much smaller than my first had (at 7 1/2 lbs), just because by then, my older daughter was three :)

What a cutie baby! The chia is looking great too!
