Wednesday, October 13th

Today was my due date, hard to imagine since Aurelia is nearly 3 weeks old! The days seem to go very quickly and very slowly at the same time. I continue to juggle my time between both girls and to feel enormous amounts of guilt when I am not with one of them. Since Madison still has a cold, I haven't been able to bring her to the hospital this week. It has been tough because I haven't been spending enough time with her. I want to be at the hospital as much as possible during the day, so that I am there when the various doctors and specialists stop in to see Aurelia. But, I want to give Maddie her "mama time" too. My plan today was to be at the hospital for a good part of the day. The Speech folks were planning to do a bottle feed at noon and I wanted to be present for that, so I told my mom that I'd be back sometime in the afternoon and that we could take Maddie to The Please Touch Museum, if she was rested and seemed to be interested in getting out of the house (which I'm sure my mom was ready for!). The plan changed a bit when I got to the hospital and found out that Speech would be doing the 3 pm feed instead of the noon one as planned. I headed back to the house and picked up mom and Maddie and headed for the museum. We had a great morning. There are all kinds of fun exhibits and Madison really had a fantastic time. I think that Charley and I will take Maddie there again over the weekend. It will be good to have some family time! Here are a few pictures from the visit to the museum.
