Liam is in his fifth day of life! Amazing. He was a mystery a week ago, and now he is still much of mystery, so much still to unfold - but I've held his hands and kissed his hair, nuzzled into the hollow of his neck. He went through a whole sleep wake cycle yesterday in Bob's arms and another in K.K.'s. I held his hands and cooed at him while he cried through a diaper change. I put one sleeper in the dirty clothes hamper and brought another sleeper downstairs. In short, he's home, healthy, here and I got to help take care of him and it doesn't get much better than that.

Joanna looks good - though I know she's tired of being pregnant. Andrea will be induced Tuesday morning if she doesn't come before then. All was well at that house too when we took Valentines (mine handmade and Bob's balloon tradition which he started when the girls were little and which they and the KDZ adore).

Bob and I walked at McKinney Falls today - late winter - cool and still gray world, but with tiny green touches here and there, not spring yet, but the palest promise. I saw my first hints of red buds yesterday.

I'm still holding my breath a little until Andrea is safely among us - still tired and overjoyed and focusing on hope not worry.

How neat to read about your time with Liam on his fifth day of life and to read about your anticipation of Andrea! Glad you updated your blog.

What a nice update for all of us who wait with you, Victoria. :) I love reading about your time with Liam.
I'm glad Joanna looks good and will soon be bringing Andrea into your life as well. You don't have long to wait now.
Your traditions of Valentines and balloons is such a good one and before long you'll have two more sets of little hands joining in on tradition.
How nice that Bob and you had such a nice walk in the still wintry day but the hope breaks eternal with new life, little sprouts of life. I know your lives are so full and rich right now.
Hugs to all of you.
