I have never met a more happier person than Cora. She even beats out Zander. Her joy is infectious. The fellows in our family adore her. We all do. Its not like she is the perfect baby. She wakes periodically in the night, she whines, poops steaming sulfur turds, and she will gauge out your hair and eyeballs. But the spirit inside of her illuminates our world and we forget why we needed to worry.
Ender and daddy are her best friends. If you are blessed to be holding her when Ender is in the room, then you will experience her energy and zeal for him. You physically feel her happiness. Its incredible.
I don't want to think about her future in terms of "what if all this changes" "I'll be eating my words once she turns two..." "what will the teenage years be like?"
Today is all we have and know. And today, my goodness, she is our healing joy.
*the trio by the fire. Daddy exemplifies tenderness towards his baby girl and Ender falls in line. That is something that Zander is teaching Ender: how love, respect, and servitude are the nuts (haha) and bolts of a man. ;)
