I keep thinking of things I want to write about Claire then forgetting to do so.
She has taken to making predictions. This morning I told her she would go to church with daddy and talked about what she would do and who she would see. When I told her, "You'll see Khouria Joy." She said, "She's going to give you big hugs." It seems most of the predictions have to do with someone else giving her something of sharing something with her.

Claire likes to describe things...mostly animals and people. Her description of Emily include: "She has tiny hair, she has hands, she has eyes, she has a nose." Claire likes to touch each body part as she makes these observations. Very sweet. Occasionally she still thinks I'm at the hospital or about to leave to go there. She only woke up once during the night last night.

Emily nurses about every 2 hours round the clock. I haven't figured out how to nurse her lying down yet. Will work on this again at nap time tomorrow. She is nursing way better and way more than I expected for the first week at home. Thank you God!

That is great news about Emily's nursing! Perhaps, you can get someone to come help with the laying down and nursing technique with a preemie? I am sure that would help you feel more rested.

I have been in the bad habit of teasingly singing "Take me back to California" of late when I am feeling particularly obnoxious. I never thought I'd be saying such a thing (of course it came out yesterday when we received our first snow in OCTOBER!)...but I do miss you all!

With love, Elisa

We love the "Tidbits" of news of your life with the little girls. I loved Claire's "tiny hair" description of Emily. So glad Em is nursing well!! Yeah!! Thank you God!! I know how much it means to you and how hard you worked to make it happen. Love, Nanna
