Day 15 - Living Social deals that buy you dinner and lunch for tomorrow! We used ours at the Fresh Bar tonight (they have been pretty empty on both of our visits, but it's a great spot if you want to make an intricate salad.) Jacob is never going to let me forget that when we first went, I gave Jack the power to "create" his own sandwich and we walked away with an egg, bacon, garbanzo bean, cheddar cheese wrap.
Day 16 - Baby Cora. She deserves another shout out. I feel like this child has graciously accepted her spot living in the background for the moment. We do almost forget she's here sometimes. She's usually just waiting patiently while we attend to the louder Landry child. (Or as my friend said, when describing her older child, the one who sucks up all the air in the room!) It makes me feel guilty at times because she is sort of like a little puppy in that she just shines when we do focus our attention on her. I just love her to pieces and am grateful that she is so gracious and patient right now, as it is just what we need as we learn to love and care for two children. And I'm especially grateful for the little moments where it is all about her. I borrow some of the Jewel Lullaby songs and sing or hum to Cora before I put her down to sleep. This is my favorite verse:
Lullaby and goodnight,
you are mother's delight.
I'll protect you from harm,
and you'll wake in my arms.
You are such a delight little one!
