2/1/2011 56 Days Old

February 1st, 2011

On the 56th day in the life of the most beautiful girl in the history of the world the morning began peacefully. This morning it snowed, and then it snowed some more, and then it snowed some more. School was canceled today. Another snow day. Another day at home staying in bed and admiring our little girl. She is still struggling today. She has slept most of the day. She needs her rest. She is not struggling with being cute though. She still makes hand gestures when you bug her. She pulls her hand up to in front of her face and holds up one finger as if to say “wait a minute.” Then she drifts off to sleep.

We didn’t have any visitors today due to the weather. Just the three of today. I shoveled snow, Erin held Maya, I played guitar, Erin held Maya, Erin fixed diner, I held Maya. It was an uneventful day. We had the shades in the bedroom open and watched the snow come down, or sideways, or which ever way it wanted to go. I could count the number of cars I’ve seen drive up my street today on one hand. It was a peaceful day.
