After those first few days of learning to live with another absolutely adorable yet demanding human, things started to settle into a routine. I went back to lab part time so I could drag out my leave as long as possible, and Jordan came with me to hang with Sophia and get some quality bonding time. On the days I got to stay home, Sophia and I would hang out while Jordan went to work.

Our new normal lets me hang out with her all day Fridays and weekends and go to school Monday-Thursday and an overnight. I love spending time with her, watching her play, listening to the sounds she makes, and feeling her snuggle up to me.

That first year was exhausting!
