We just welcomed Charlotte Grace Hyslop into the world. Our lives just got richer when "Lottie" made her entrance on August 7, 2012 weighing in at 7 pounds, 12 ounces.
It was love at first sight. Actually, it was love way before that...
I was talking with dear friend Janice Vespa who called to hear the birth details. I jokingly commented that we needed a trip to our home-away-from-home at the Vespas, as we have doctors' appointments in St. Louis in early September.
Then I realized... To date, we have quite possibly spent more time in our guest bedroom in the Vespa's home than we have living in our new house! No wonder we don't feel settled quite yet. It was a bit sobering to think about how many days & weeks we have spent doing "cancer things" in St. Louis... and now we rejoice that we can focus on living in our new home.
This realization fascinated me. Thanks for letting me share it.
