I’m just back from the registry office with a birth certificate for our officially named baby – Vashti Grace Porteous Day. There were some challenging questions – where was Katie born? When were we married? At least the piece of paper has the right information now following a few frantic calls to various members of the Day family.
On the way back I stopped in to see the girls from the parenting class. Last time we met they were all pregnant. Now they each had a baby in their arms, or at their breasts. Upon arrival I was immediately handed a baby – not mine – to hold while some milk was prepared. Just two weeks this would have petrified me. How things change.
And how babies change. They grow so quickly – the variation of sizes of the assembled infants born within four weeks was remarkable.
