So in this chapter, we're going a little 'old-school Rain", as we'll primarily center around just Rain and Aunt Fara together for a bit. Emily will be staying home with the now month old Lydia (no one wants to hear a crying baby when they already have to do errands in stuffy old offices and such, after all). And we don't see or hear Vincent right now, but he could be at work or sleeping off a long night before or something. Mostly, I just wanted to use this opportunity to focus on the original duo. ^_^

I do also wanna reiterate that I'm new to drawing babies, so I don't know if Lydia looks too big or too small for a month old (or if she's too "active" in panel 6). Forgive me if it's very off. I'm not a mom myself, I'm a youngest child, and although I've got friends with kids, I was never really around the one month phase. I'm just doing the best I can here. ^^;

I did want to have Lydia in a yellow onesie, though. Not pink. Not blue. Something distinctly less gendered as Emily implied she wanted to do.

Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.

My next round of dental work is currently slated for November, but as I've discussed, I've still got a lot to save. If you can help, I will be very grateful. If not, no hard feelings. Thank you, either way.

I think someone said that Rain's hair hasn't grown back yet, but it's grown a considerable amount since the last chapter.

The baby looks great, but too active in panel 6 indeed.

Agreed, from my understanding (which everyone should take with a grain of salt on this topic because its the easily erroneous google-fu), at four weeks, babies are still either eating or sleeping, for the vast majority of the time. Not sure if they even have anything that could be described as "motor control".

However, I could easily see it as Emily actually putting Lydia's arms on her shoulders as a way of kinda hugging her. So with that in mind, its a non-issue.

As a mother of two my kids where that active around 2-3 months so you're not that far off. My youngest could grab my hair at 1month

My niece has started hair grabbing at about a month.

Lydia is so adorable!!!! I love her so much, and I can't wait to see more of her. Also Rain looks absolutely GORGEOUS in this design! I wish I felt comfortable enough to rock a bob...or had hair straight enough for one to be able to look like that >_>

Rain is so beautiful <3 She looks perfect in this chapter. I really hope she feels better about herself now - all things really have turned out for her. Also, now that the baby is born, she looks adorable, and so different than I expected <3

Oh gosh... Emily all alone in the apartment. I really hope her ex doesn't show up right now...
