Homecoming

So, Papa Bear should be back home sometime today. He's been up in the kootenays for just over a week now, wrapping up work on a wireless project there before winter closes in. And none too soon, it seems. He tried to come home yesterday, but Cancelgar was closed and his alternate flight out of Trail was cancelled just as they got to the airport. So he took a bus outta there last night to Kelowna where he knows he can get a flight out today.
It'll be good to have him home again. And it'll be interesting for him to see the changes in T over the last week. She's no doubt grown some more, though her appetite was lighter this week, so probably less of a leap there. Her personality continues to develop and present itself as she's awake and alert more. She's smiling more and sleeping more consistently at night now, both of which make looking after her when I'm on my own far more manageable (amazing what a string of little smiles just for you will do for your motivation).
Looking back after just two months, I'm so grateful that we've been given such a calm, happy little girl. Sure, she has her days where she won't rest unless she's held and even then it takes finding that right mix of walking, rocking, music, talking or noise to soothe her. But even at her worst she's not so bad. I know, too, to expect plenty of changes over the next twenty years (or days), but we'll take 'em one at a time, and trust in God's continuing grace.
She's a little bit camera shy, but if I can catch a smile, I'll be sure to post it!

  • Oh, it will be nice to have the Bear home I imagine. I remember the first weeks of babies- they changed every day it seemed. What a marvel!
