Jenni had her baby. Autumn will be 2 weeks old this Thursday. She grows like a weed. I saw her last Thursday, and again on Sunday. She was noticeably larger, her face more round.

All babies look alike in the beginning--it's something to do with being small and pink and having hazy blue eyes--but you can't stop staring at the one you know. We watch her every movement, waiting for the break in the clouds--the brief moment when her eyes open and the light shines forth. She spends those brief moments looking puzzled, wondering at the big shapes hovering over her uttering complete gibberish.
