I didn't do a whole lot today. Took that good walk, did a few chores around here, went to the grocery and Costco by myself which was odd and a bit strange- no babies, no children, no daughters to crack jokes with. Just in and quick shopping for only what I needed, then out again.
I stopped by Lily's on my way home, of course. I had to see little Maggie on her fourth day of life. When I came in, Owen said, "Mer! Why are you here again? How many days are you going to come see us?"
"I don't know," I said. And I don't. I only stayed for a few moments. Long enough to hold that baby, cuddle her soft sweet body close to me, kiss those unbelievably soft cheeks. When I left, Owen was holding his sister. He loves her so much.
I kissed the two of them before I left and went to kiss Gibson.
"I love you," he said. "No kisses."
"All right, then," I said. "I love you too."
"Okay," he said. "You can kiss me."
And I did. He smells like boy. As he should.
