Two months old!

She can get her fist in her mouth all by herself!
Ready to go!
Two months old! Green is her color!


Seriously, have you seen a cuter kid?? If you have your own baby, I know you are thinking "uh, YES, right here!!"
Now that I am past most of the postpartum depression crap, motherhood has really sunken in. I have taken to holding her as much as possible (I'll post a picture of her in her sling soon!) and have given up on trying not to spoil her. Who cares if she is spoiled? I waited long enough for her, I'm going to spoil her if I want to!
I know I was depressed before because even though I felt love for her and was so happy she was here, it was hard to find a lot of joy. Does that even make sense? Everytime we would go out, I would be anxious that she would need to eat or be changed or cry. Now, she cries, I have no problems whipping out my boob and feeding my little monkey. If she cries, I don't worry about her upsetting other people. Who cares about them? And I have just found her to be the BEST listener! On more than one occasion, I've caught myself rambling on to her and people asking me "what?" and I have to say, "Oh, I'm just talking to my baby!" I don't dread being alone with her all day and actually relish the time. I love the days that I spend in my pjs and we just play all day!
For you new moms and moms to be... let people take over for you, don't feel guilty about napping, and tell your husband you need help!
Love and hope to all!

Of course she is the most beautiful baby ever! And so glad to hear that you can finally enjoy it. I had that same problem. Every single day that goes by just gets better and better. Wait until she is nine months old and you are staring down the barrel of her first birthday! Wait until she laughs out loud when you do something silly. Wait until she is standing in her crib when you walk in each morning. Your heart will melt all over again. Even if you do go back to work the time you have with her is so precious- it may be hard at first but either way- if you work or stay home- she will know how much you love her.
Happy Mommyhood! Jenn
