Checking in

So my little g is 9 weeks old and I think I am still falling inlove with her a little more everyday. Sometimes I just stare at her and it feels like I need to pinch myself to make sure this is all real. She has been sleeping through the night now for a couple of weeks she goes to bed around 9 and gets up around 6. At night I give her a bottle and then I sing her a few songs, then I rock her to sleep in my arms. Sometimes it takes a couple of tries to get her down for the night. Then in the morning she has another bottle and then comes inthe bed with us. H gets a little snuggle time in with her before he goes to work and then G and I sleep for a couple more hours. When she wakes up she is all smiles for me. It melts my heart every time. It is not all easy but I love being a Mom.

Even though I know that we needed to take this particular path to get to this spot, I wish we had gone to DE earlier. I am turning 40 in a month and I guess I am worried about being an old Mom. I keep doing the math, you know, when she is 10 I'll be 50 etc. That is the only thing that will sometimes creep in and take the shine off of things for a minute.

I think of that, too. I'll be 40 in a couple of months. Oh well, it's just the way it is!
Nine weeks already! It seems like she was just born!
