I’ve learned a few things about sleep since becoming a father, and I knew quite a bit about it before. I’ve learned how to watch for those heavy eyelids and the joy that comes with seeing them finally shut peacefully. Because then I can sleep as well. But sometimes it’s just nice to hold a sleeping baby. This picture, one of our favorites, was taken by my mom’s partner Jane O’Wyatt at xmas dinner.
I’ve been away from Elsie and Maggie for a week now and we’ve got two more to go. I think I might get choked up when I finally do see little Elsie. She’ll probably look a little different and wonder who I am. Oh hopefully she’ll smile and remember me.
Anyway, I’m at a loss for words in for this babble blog right now since all I can really say is I miss my daughter. But I suppose I don’t miss her so much between the hours of six and eight am, when I can still catch a little uninterupted sleep.
