I know she will be fine. In a day or two, after the kinks are worked out, she will be more than fine, she will thrive. But, for now, I am just praying for a good day for her.
I don't feel like it really has been 14 years since I became a mom, but she is the evidence. I guess I am getting older. I don't feel "old," just I know that having a child in high school makes me seem ancient to many.
V is such a happy baby. She is just playing around, mostly by herself. She is walking 8-12 steps at a time (although occasionally she still falls after two) and she is just letting go and taking off walking with no destination in mind. It won't be long until that is all she does! I am grateful today especially for her good nature. I have severe leg pain that may or may not be pregnancy related (it doesn't seem to be, but you never know) and the pain woke me up around two this morning, never to go back to sleep. Needless to say, between lack of sleep and continuing pain, I am dragging. Thank goodness V is so good at entertaining herself. In so many ways, she is a blessing to me.
And, I miss A. It has been nearly a month already since we saw her. I wish we lived closer. I am also ready for this new baby....not ready for it to be born, but just excited that I get to be a Mom again.
