I just can't believe what happened to the little wrinkly skinny baby we brought home 2 months ago...That formula sure sticks to the bones. Little Claire is not so little anymore-- she's pushing double digits as a 10 pounder. She pretty much is sleeping through the night and on occasion we catch a smile with two big dimples. I'm convinced she looks just like Drew, but Spencer thinks otherwise. I believe he is just trying to make me feel better about the fact that I don't have my own little clone like he does.
We have been hanging out in Atlanta for the last two weeks while Spencer travels between Boston, New York City, and Philadelphia. Six of the seven flights have been delayed, and the one flight that wasn't delayed he missed. So all of his time spent away from us hasn't exactly been enjoyable. Knowing that really seems to help the situation when I know he is enjoying fancy dinners and king size beds not filled with kids.
We're excited to get back to Ithaca this week and to reunite with our Cornell family. I'm hoping for another exceptionally warm winter which will allow for Drew to run around outside to his hearts content as I somehow figure out how to manage two children. We're 1/3 of the way done with law school and time just seems to be flying by. I can't believe this time last year we were driving in to Ithaca (me 40lbs lighter might I remind you) and discovering what a gem this beautiful city is sandwiched between the Finger Lakes. This year we're bringing another Orton to Ithaca and couldn't be more excited to get back to school. Here's to another great year!
