they still need to be with their mommies.

they will come in a few months when they are weaned.


this is good news!

how will they know how to get here?

i can’t even begin to imagine what they are getting for us, can you?

no, sunny.  i can’t.

but i’m sure it will be amazing.

um, guys?

uh oh…

p.s.  a brief note from caoinlean

hi, mom.

it’s me, caoinlean.

my new mom senior guardian said that i could put a note on here because si gaoithe always gets to.

i just wanted to let you know that we got braces.


yup.  braces and headgear.


we only have to wear them on special occasions.

i thought you’d want to know.


and please kiss cormac goodnight for me.

i can’t wait to see him.

rumble, rumble…

mooooove, caoinlean.

hi, mom.  it’s si gaoithe.

please read meadbh a bedtime story for me,

preferably a classic.

dickens or chaucer would be great.

i want her to be fully literate before she arrives.

xx  si gaoithe
