Our sweet little girl made her big debut three weeks ago, and boy howdy, nothing has been the same since! Absolutely nothing about this experience has been perfect (I feel like it's way too easy to idealize things, so I'm just going to be honest here!), but absolutely everything has been wonderful--even the hard stuff. Even the dozens of times I've cried. Even the dirty diapers and screaming matches and every-hour-all-night-long feedings (I hate that word!). Because at the end of the day, God gave us our own little human being to love and take care of, and we're still pinching ourselves.
We didn't do anything to deserve this sweetness.
