Our new normal feels good.
I am waking up early when Paul gets up for work which means I have a few hours to myself before Ellerie stirs. I so appreciate the mornings and enjoy getting time for my coffee, breakfast, blog reading and email. I am now able to be completly present for her when she wakes up. I have no idea how long this schedule will last for us, but I'm celebrating it while we have it.
My parents are coming to visit this weekend. I used to look forward to their visits, but now that Ellerie is here, I feel like I count the minutes. Something about sharing your kiddo with your parents is magic, no? It's like bringing home a good grade on a test times 100. I'm excited for her to get time with them, my house to get some new shelves (new shelves = more space for plants) and Paul and I to get another dinner date. The long-term plan is to convince our families to move to San Diego. In the short-term, these weekend visits are blessings for everyone.
Have a good one.
