Little Alice. Just hours old. March 2012.
I remember waking up last year on Mother's Day feeling so sad. After more than a year of trying, I still wasn't a mother. And, to add insult to injury, my monthly visitor was three days late and decided to show up so appropriately on the day dedicated to mothers. Oh, the irony!
But here I am, a year later, looking down at my perfect little girl as she sleeps in my arms. Almost eight weeks in, it is still hard to believe that I am finally a mother. You were worth the wait, Sweetheart. You really were.
I am feeling a bit meh today. Just tired. And it's rainy again. A few of my friends from Mommy Class are meeting up for lunch. I really should just buck up and meet them. And I should go for a run. Yep. That's the plan.
Ready. Set. GO!
Happy Mother's Day, Bri!ReplyDelete
Little Alice is well worth the wait. You will be a great mother to your wonderful little girl. Sure there be times when you haven't had enough sleep and you wonder what in the world you are doing... and have gotten ourself into. Then there are the times like today, where you are holding your little one and see what a miracle she is. She will bring much happiness to you and your husband.... and of course the rest of the family! xoReplyDelete
