Having a baby seems to make life so much more intense. There are highs and there are lows, but not too many in betweens. There are those days when she sleeps and laughs and I feel like a great mom and those days where she won't go to sleep and I just know it's because I'm stressed out and my negative emotions affect her.
One thing I seem to be coming back to again and again are priorities. And since I am only able to do one or two things a day other than take care of her, I have to really choose them well. Seeing people is good for me and for her and I'm so happy we've been able to hang out with her aunt. And hopefully one day she can have a sister or brother too, because it's a great gift.
