It is strange how fast and how slow time can go. I am really trying to just love each and every minute of this new baby and enjoy her as much as I can. Still, I find that I have moments of anxiety where I start to think about things that are beyond my control and too far in the future. I don't remember ever feeling this way with the other two kids, so maybe it is just about being older. However, I AM more relaxed about so many other things with Maggie. I know that one day she won't want to cuddle all day, and that she won't need me for every little thing, and I know that one day she will head off to school and get to learn all the hard lessons of life. So for now, I just focus on her little face, her little toes, her tiny hands, and her perfect eyes. Sleep will come again (I hope!), but 'tiny her' will keep on growing.

Today Maggie is one week old! I love her so much already. She was 7 lbs 12 oz at birth and came into the world crying with both lungs. I loved going drug free and really feeling everything, including all the emotions that accompany a miracle like birth. Each day I think that I want her to stay tiny and dependable. I can't wait to love her for the rest of her life...
