well, hello there!
today while i was blow-drying my hair elle was laying on the bed with harry keeping him company and i turned off the blow dryer to hear her saying "i'm gonna get that boy. i'm gonna get that boy. i got you. i got you." over and over to him. and harry was as happy and as content as could be. and that is a miracle in itself because if the boy is awake and knows he not being held he does not like it at all.
after having a bit of a trying week, that sweet moment was the redemption i needed.
beyond blessed and beyond thankful for my children. but i know its okay to feel overwhelmed at times. and to have not-so-great days....
we love our little harry so much. i tried to envision our family with him a part of it, it is everything and nothing like i thought it would be. and so so much more. he is the missing puzzle piece. and then there is our daughter, who we've had for 3 wonderful years. she brings us more joy than anything or anyone every could or will. she loves her little "brudder" so much. so thankful for her sweet and gentle spirit as she is as careful as a 3-year old knows to be with a little bitty baby and she has yet to make us scared to leave her in a room with him alone. expect for that one time....
sweet sweet babies,
days may be long and hard. and i may fall short one hundred times over.
but "i got you" and "you got me". forever.
