Aunties K & L

K's sister had a baby right after Christmas. She's the only one of the three siblings who has reproduced and will likely remain the only one with a single child. She's the youngest at 40, not the best time for the first baby. But, the baby arrived and is healthy and happy. K and I drove out 700 miles with a dresser on top of the Jetta to see the baby this weekend.

K was smitten. She didn't want to let the baby go virtually the entire time we visited her sister. She cooed, fed, changed, and adored the baby the entire time, which is good.

The other good part is that we seemed to have been able to make the trip with no repercussions to K's mental state. There were a couple of danger areas. First, a long trip in a very short period of time. It was 12 hours of driving on Thursday and on Sunday. Second, we had the excitement of seeing her family. Third, there is a new baby and the accompanying hormones to send her tailspinning. But none of the bad seems to have taken place. Rather, we are slightly tired and mildly irritably, but that's the extent of it. Yippeee!
