On Saturday, Mia turned two months old. (The picture above was taken that day.) That is SO hard for me to believe. Though it has not been the easiest 8 weeks, it is such a blessing to have this little girl in my life. Sometimes you have to work to see the "sunny side" of things and sometimes it just hits you. It hit me over the weekend. This little girl may not be the happiest or the easiest baby, but I am blessed to be her mommy. Mia is beautiful and healthy (except for minor issues). Though she has only smiled for Daddy, I am sure that she is also happy (sometimes).
I certainly look forward to her sleeping until morning, the first time she smiles at me, her first laugh, when she gets over this colicky, reflux period and all of her upcoming firsts. But, until then I will daily remind myself that she is a gift from God and he chose ME to be her mommy. That thought alone can bring me to tears.
Mia, you are an amazing, beautiful, perfect creation and I love you with all of my heart. Happy 2 month "birthday"!
