It has been a good first week in the 6-person Brown compound. Cana has her days and nights a bit confused. She tended to wake up around 10:00 pm even while she was in the womb and the fresh air hasn’t changed her routine. We are simply going to move to Hawaii where the timezone is more conducive to her sleeping habits. Her first trip yesterday was to Wendy’s for lunch then to the new Super Wal-Mart in town. It is the small town, modern day equivalent of the Old Testament sacrificial system.
Isaac and Grace (who turn 5 years old today) enjoy Cana. For Grace, it doesn’t get any better than holding Cana while some kidshows are on the television. Eden also likes having Cana around. She is mostly concerned when Cana’s binky falls out and does her level best to return it forcefully back into Cana’s mouth. We’re still working on the, “Easy, Eden, easy“. Unfortunately, love hurts sometimes.
Hope is feeling well but could use a nap at any moment. If Cana’s timezone confusion wasn’t enough, we’re also battling nighttime bad dreams for the other kids.
I returned to work today and only had 5 voicemails but 200 e-mails. I really, really like my work but it was nice to be home with the fam for a few days. Tonight I am hoping to plant some tulip, daffodil and crocus bulbs in the front flower beds with Grace’s help.
