So far everyone is adjusting to baby well (aside from Robin who is not sleeping much at all). Our daughter has been excited about her new sister for the entire pregnancy and has been through the experience before when our son was born. As expected, she adores the baby and dotes on her whenever she gets the chance. We were a little more concerned about our son – especially now that he is the middle child. We are very pleased so far that he is similarly excited about his new sister. He is very protective of her and very interested in what she is doing at all times.
On the way home from school, Chris and the older kids stopped at the local market to get ground sirloin for dinner. We meant to grill, but we found ourselves with no propane. No matter – we’ve pan fried burgers many times before. Tonight’s were very tasty to our weary palettes.
It’s going to be a while before we get back to something resembling normal. A good dinner and helpful kids are a good start.
