I don't mean to be taking blogging breaks! I recently took a mostly work-from-home part-time job and it seems that instead of blogging during nap time, I am working! It's good. I am so thankful for the opportunty to do this job. Every time that I am doing some work and then can just get up and go take care of my kids, I feel so thankful!
Anyway, my sweet darling, Elsie, is 7 months old today.
Just because she's 2nd born doesn't mean that her mommy doesn't celebrate the milestones!
This may come out wrong but I think all of you moms will know what I mean.
I'm having such a love-affair with this child. It's not that she's never a challenge or that I didn't/don't love my 1st born the same.
But . . . I'm just so much more relaxed with #2 and I identify with her (being a middle child myself) so I feel like we're sticking together!
I love it when she just can't quite fall asleep and I go into her room and rock her a little bit. The overwhelming feeling of sweet love when I'm snuggling with her cannot be beat! I would have never done this with Abigail - for fear of spoiling her sleeping - but with Elsie, I just don't care! :)
It's true what they say about love multiplying (not dividing) when you have more than one child.
Happy 7-month birthday to my sweet girl.
