...Carole had a great prompt today about all the things we do to get our homes ready for fall. Swapping out pillows and candles and other "decor", planting pansies and chyrsanthemums in place of the very tired petunias in the front pots, putting the comforter back on the bed, stocking the pantry with split peas, pumpkin, chicken broth and oatmeal. Yep all of that. But not yet. I'm glad fall doesn't really arrive around here for another few weeks (at least). I have plenty of time to help Katie & Rob settle in at home with little Charlie.
They were discharged yesterday evening (turns out the insurance companies are actually serious about "48 hours" for the baby; I'm really grateful Charlie wasn't born at 2 am!) and their first night home wasn't very restful. I stopped by at lunchtime - this was Holly's first visit and I know "inquiring minds want to know." She didn't bark at him once. Nope, not even a growl. She's certainly curious about what all he's up to, but she's not jealous...more protective I think.
We came back a few hours later for dinner (I cooked-ish! taco salads...definitely need to up my game in the meal department). Holly was still on her best behavior and Charlie napped like a pro. The arm up is a thing with Katie, and with Marc... it must be genetic, right?
I left as he was waking up for his evening meal. I hope he rests this peacefully for at least an hour or two tonight. I know they could use some sleep!
p.s. blond hair!
