In the midst of preparing for home study, I decided to take a study break. I moved the furniture and swept and mopped half the house; cleaned the kitchen, including disassembling burner covers, threw away a bunch of stuff, and cleared a space under the loft bed for a crib.
It was time to buy a soft toy to leave with the baby when I go for court. I found just the thing, and bought two identical. jc and I will sleep with them so they smell like us. I'll leave one with the baby, and its twin will be waiting here for her when she gets home.
Every morning when I wake up, I tell our baby, via the Lucy bunny, how much I already love her.
