Our little baby Peggy is three months old today. It's very bitter sweet. I'm sure every mother feels the same when milestones like this come and go, I spent a little bit of time today reliving giving birth to her which really was the most wonderful experience. I promise I will finally hit "publish" on our birth story blog post soon! I remember struggling so much with those first newborn weeks but I look at them now with a tinge of regret. I know I couldn't have enjoyed them more than I did, my experience was very much like a rollercoaster but when I think of those moments when she was small enough to sleep on my chest I just wish I could go back and take a look. It's strange, as I remember feeling so frustrated that I couldn't put her down and all she wanted was me. Now I think "you idiot, why didn't you enjoy it more when you had the chance?". That's motherhood I suppose!
Peggy, I love how you wrinkle your nose when something really makes you smile. I love how smiley you are full stop, sometimes you even smile when you're crying. It's like you really just want to be happy all the time. I love that I can enter the room and you'll stop crying. I love how independent you are (except at nap time of course). I love our afternoon walks together under the trees. I love that you love having a bath, even your first one. My little mermaid baby, born in the water & in your sack during a full moon. You're magic and I'll give you everything.
