|Jack is 1 week and 1 day old...Clara is 101 weeks old!!|
Jack has been with us for one week and one day. And what a week it was! Clara has been with us for 101 weeks...and what an adventure it has been! My babies. My heart.
My mom left yesterday. I sobbed. No really....SOBBED all day just thinking about her departure. My sobbing inevitably made her sob....it was ridic. But...she had done so much to help us while she was here. She would wake with Clara, feed her and get her going in the morning. She'd let me nap and occupy Clara...hold baby Jack. She'd prepare our meals...do our dishes...scrub our floors...dear Lord...what an angel. How was I going to do this without her!? (Mother's are so special...talk about unconditional love.)
I'm looking forward to figuring this out...this is one aspect of the balance and art of motherhood. I get 6 whole weeks with my little loves. Never again will I have such a span of time with them exclusively. Now it's down to 5 weeks. And next week, they will be going off to college. So I will savor this crazy, hormonal, exciting, amazing, terrifying, sleep deprived adventure of mine...and just love the stuffings outta them!
PS: Clara doesn't quite know what to think about it all...but they sure are cute together!
