10 weeks...WOW! The past 10 weeks have been absolutely incredible! Words could not adequately describe all that I have felt and experienced in just a short period of time. On August 12th our lives were forever changed by the arrival of a tiny 6lb 10oz beautiful baby named Eleanor Grace. What a blessing! I am daily humbled by the fact that God chose Daniel and I to be Eleanor's parents. In our own strength and on our own we are so inadequate, but God chose us anyway. I hope I never take that reality for granted. In only a blink of an eye 10 weeks will have turned to 1 year and then to 1o years. It is my prayer that Daniel and I will live in the moment, cherish each day and not wish this time away. I am not saying I won't stop wishing for E to sleep through the night or to successfully nap in her crib during the day, but until that day comes I will enjoy the middle of the night feeding when she sleepily greets me with a huge smile as I change her diaper and nurse her back to sleep or the hours spent rocking her during the day as she coos and smiles in sweet slumber.
