Tis a bit of a sad day as we said goodbye to Mamie today. We've grown rather accustomed to having ann extra loved one around, first Aunt Katherine for so long and then Mamie for an exceedingly productive and blessed two weeks. The house seems so quiet and still with just the three of us. We'll miss having someone who loves Caroline fiercely to nuzzle her for an hour or two in the early morning to allow me some extra sleep. We'll miss all the massive help. We'll miss having another person to ooh and ah over the impossibly cute things C does. We'll miss the encouragement that we're doing a good job as parents in the midst of long and/or intensely angry crying jags. Yup. It is hard to say goodbye.
That said, it is sort of exciting to begin this journey of parenthood just the three of us. Three of us! Wow... for so long we waited and wanted. And the moment is here.
Caroline and Mamie in the nursery Mamie worked so hard on while here. Caroline was rather sad and so required loud shushing in her ear to calm her.
A bit more of the nursery is visible in this one... not so much the crying baby.

Saying goodbye at the airport. So sad...
