No longer a newborn

My baybee turns 4 months old today. I feel like every day is better than the day before; every day she is more fun. But still, it makes me sad. She's already not much of a cuddler, and it makes me wonder if her cuddliest days are behind her. We're working on her falling asleep on her own, and she's doing great. But I want to hold her in my arms! I want to see her little contented smile. I remember those first few weeks, everyone that saw her told me how fast time goes. And they were all correct.

When she wakes up from a nap, all smiles and love, the world stops. It is her and me. She has no thoughts of broken hearts, or wars in other countries, or money or drama with her girlfriends. This will all come in time. Right now, she is only smiles. Joy. Amazement. The world is all new, and it’s all good. Thank you, little girl, for showing me what that looks like. Thank you for being part of my life.


  1. Your recent posts make me cry...in a good way. Hang in there. Going back to work was a very tough thing for me; however, I am in a position that is .75FTE and lends itself to many vacations, days off, extended weekends and of course, summers off. Maybe teaching is in the works for you? ~Molly
