The seasons changed fast. Days changed to weeks and weeks turned into months.
Dmitri’s concerns from sleeping habits now changed into nutritious baby food.
It was hard then, and it is still hard now, Dmitri mused while playing with Melody in the nursery designed by him.
Baby squeals and panting noises would bring Dmitri out of his darkness, only to find himself standing alone and confused on some strange and unfamiliar shore, full of emotions and memories but also feeling utterly lost.
Dmitri headed to daycare, feeling a little apprehensive like every day about how Melody would handle the move away from the comforts of home. He always went through a bit of separation anxiety while leaving her. That gut-wrenching feeling was natural; but Dmitri couldn't help but fret everyday.
