Well, it’s our first day back on the normal routine. Tess took half a bottle from Dave this morning and almost a whole one from me this afternoon. Her eyes were really open and alert, and I had to turn the music off for her to concentrate on eating. She was moving her head around trying to find its source!
Dave and I both commented on how much we missed touching base during the day, and hanging out with Tess together at night. We’ve had a lot of time together here, and we love it. Yet another thing to appreciate about our time in Utah – crazy silver linings.
The nurses and nps seem to be gearing up for our future departure. I don’t think it’ll happen overnight by any means, but I do think it’s getting closer. We’ve had multiple people say we can’t leave when they’re on vacation. Lol! I’m hoping for 2 weeks before her due date, but I’m guessing 1.
Our life here continues. We had dinner with friends at a cool spot in the mountains, joked around with our buddy at the coffee shop, hung out with the nurses and Ronald McDonald team (who oohed and aged appropriately over our baby photos today!), and did our thing. This really does feel a lot like singing gigs: I was impatient at the beginning, settled in in the middle, and as the end nears I get antsy. I wish I wouldn’t – we’re not that close!
Still, slow progress is better than no progress. And that sweet, sweet girl is growing like a weed. 🙂
