I am exhausted. Cordelia has been keeping me up, but it's OK. I am so filled with gratitude. She wakes up in the middle of the night and smiles at me and seems to be asking, "What now?" Sure I am beyond tired with this new phase, but mostly I just look down at this beautiful little girl and think about how blessed I am. I get to be the one who is tired for her. I am the one who catches those midnight smiles.
I know that some of you are going through the same thing as I am right now and I think of you, my friends, out there somewhere with babes of your own, having your own moments in the middle of the night. I am overwhelmed and humbled to be a part of something so much bigger than I. I feel it like a current beneath my skin, saying, "always always always be thankful."
PS Totally off subject but, does anybody have a photo storing recommendation? I've been using photo bucket, but lately it keeps infecting my computer with a virus.
