Miko I know that we’ve been doing this daylight saving thing forever, and that the media is full of advice on how to cope with it, and that we shouldn’t be making a big deal out of it, and that it may be totally irrelevant to my feeling so exhausted at the moment, but I seem to be so much more tired...

I couldn’t take it anymore. I was so lonesome for my baby that I skipped over to see her after work on Tuesday night. Well – skipped is maybe not the right word, seeing that I had to cross the city, but I was well rewarded with a few hours of Miko’s warmth and smell and little smiles. I rocked her...

My great granddaughter Léna, with her Mami (my daughter). Check out the message on her sweater!! So – with all those intentions to get so much done this weekend, I have to report that most of those plans turned out to be only that…plans! Well, I did do the laundry, and a touch of dusting here and... Sign in to see full entry.

Little Miko was allowed to come home last Saturday, so Mémère packed a suitcase and did as she had promised she would do – spend the week with the new parents. It is their first baby, and neither of them has ever even babysat, but the nurses had educated them well enough during the two months stay... Sign in to see full entry.

And many prayers helped this little Miko:

Our Miko has made it home to Mommy and Daddy after two very long months, and Mémère is helping out for the first week. Cuddles, you say??? And do you see the SMILE? She's sharing with Mémère, and her SMILE is piggybacking on the one I am sending out to you all - with so much gratitude!! Luv from the... Sign in to see full entry.

- Little Miko is still in the hospital, although she has been moved to one closer to my son’s residence making it easier on the parents. My son realized that he has spent each day outside his working hours since December 5 th (and counting) in one hospital or another, and declares it is worth every... Sign in to see full entry.

It’s midnight, and I should be sleeping, because that darned alarm clock will ring at 4:30 AM tomorrow…or should I say ‘later’. But I’m awake, and it has been so long since I’ve posted, and I’m feeling quite guilty for not having come back in and thanked you all for your prayers and good vibes sent...

Our little Miko was born at 22:04 hours on December 29th. Mummy ‘s water broke over 3 weeks ago, and she was kept flat on her back in the hospital as a high risk pregnancy case since then. This past Sunday evening tests showed infection in the placenta and the baby, so the birth was provoked as of... Sign in to see full entry.

He’s gone. After 3 days constantly together, massaging, petting, neck scratching, talking to him, taking him outside and letting him walk as far as he was able in spite of the rain, helping him get up onto the seat for short car ‘scoots’ he so enjoyed, giving him every little treat that I knew he...

I’ve always loved my Christmas. I would look forward to it from months before, even if I would get most things done at the last minute. It meant the scent of those special foods simmering on the stove; a tall, evergreen tree with sparkling lights in the corner; listening to old, favourite carols... Sign in to see full entry.
