The Liptak household has grown. Meet Iris Gloria Liptak, born on September 27th at 5:03AM. Like her brother, she’s 100% cute. I’ve been catching myself getting overwhelmed and teary the last week, just by looking at her and marveling at the future that she has ahead of her.
When Bram came in 2013, I wrote about how it was such a weird conceptual thing until he was born. The same thing happened here: all of a sudden, we have this new little person in our lives. Six years of raising another child has given me a good perspective on what’s happening, and what happens next. But there’s a lot of catch-up and remembering to do. Like, how do you change a diaper? I remember we were pretty good at it, but I’ve been having to re-learn it over again. Fortunately, she’s been pretty easygoing so far. There’s the usual crying when hungry or wet, but there’s other times when she just looks around at her surroundings.
The next couple of weeks will be a blur, I know. I’ve been taking pictures as time passes, and I’m thankful that I get to work from home this time around, especially while Megan is on maternity leave for the next couple of weeks. I can’t wait to see what she does as she grows up.
