My mom hosted a lovely women's devotional for Emily and I this afternoon to celebrate the babies-to-be-born. She picked out quotes on mothering, my sister organized a few baby shower games, we shared birth stories, and our friend Gabriela led us in some yoga moves. It was delightful.

My dad was at our house with Samaya since Sisay had to work today and as usual I gave him the v.e.r.y. s.p.e.c.i.f.i.c. rundown to be sure diapers and food ended up in their appropriate locations. Ahem. Love you Dad. She is always very much in tact when I return, but let's just say Grandpa never fails to leave his signature behind.

Today was definitely the all-time high. I was still laughing when Sisay came home 20 minutes later.

In retrospect, I had vaguely wondered why she didn't run to me when I came in the door.
