never too old to dream

Most of our days are routine, Gideon is working on a new research grant letter. His previous horticulture project at the university has completed, and he’s ready to tackle his next big questions. He loathes this part of the job the most. I can’t say I’m terribly fond myself, as he stays up late into the night, and I don’t like going to bed alone.

I usually spend my evenings with Dahlia. Even though she’s eleven, she still enjoys cuddling with her Mama, and I’m not complaining.

Births

may birthdays 2031

The youngest Pacelli grandbaby, Antonia celebrates her first birthday surrounded by family. She won’t be the youngest much longer with Erin due in four months. She enjoys the limelight in the meantime, and everyone is sure she will be fast friends with her newest cousin in due time. Besides, Ginny knows Erin’s little pride and joy won’t be the youngest for long, as she’s expecting again, due in January. It wasn’t quite the Christmas surprise she was aiming for, but January will do just fine.

She has always found her son to be the most easy child to raise, but she enjoys dressing a daughter in dresses again. She’s hoping for another girl this time so Antonia has a sister to grow up with, especially with Gemma turning sixteen in the fall.

baby makes three

Isaac (31 years), Lauren (28 years), Cade (2 weeks)

narrated by: Isaac

Cade came home from the hospital, feisty and pink, his little fists banging angrily at the air as we drove him home. However, once he got home, he seemed much happier. I could see Lauren tense on the drive, thinking we were in for a rough ride. She doesn’t realize how ‘in’ I am for this parenthood gig.

narrated by: Chaz & Emma

For years, Dad has been promising Mom an escape to Queen Victoria Isle, and I’m not alone in thinking it’d never happen. And I wish I had been right. Dad surprised Mom with the trip one night at bedtime.

Births

april birthdays 2031

It’s two in the morning when Lauren can’t ignore her contractions any longer. They get checked in quickly enough, then Isaac is holding her and massaging her back as the contractions come.

It’s just past four when Dr. Morgan says it’s time to push. Lauren had second doubts about this whole delivery bit, and Isaac was barely holding himself together.

narrated by: Vivienne

Only two months left in our junior year and neither of us are prepared for next year. Well Cicely is more prepared, just because she’s known what she wanted to do since she was five. She’s going to be a doctor, just like Mom and Grandma.

I sit in Advanced Biology falling asleep, the cute student teacher, Mr. Millett doesn’t even help keep me alert. I’m not exactly skeeved out by blood or cells, I just don’t care about it at all.

narrated by: Hadley

Rosabella and Trey have been dating about two years, and while he may be interested in marriage, she isn’t quite there yet. Which is a relief to me, first because I don’t want to hunt a new roommate, and second, because neither of them can cook; she’d likely die.
