Wednesday I had to take Beth in for her PKU. I hate that test. While there, our doctor said something that made me chuckle a bit.
We were talking about feeding the baby. He said "those first few months you are just going to feel like a human pacifier." and we laughed because it's funny 'cuz it's true.
She is gaining weight like a dream, and very healthy, no sign of jaundice or any other annoying illness. Yay!
As I was holding Beth and feeding her last night, I looked down at her. My hair was curtaining around my vision, focusing my sight on my now flabby arms and legs as I sat indian style feeding the baby. In that moment, I felt more lady like and beautiful than I have in a long time. My babies are the most beautiful thing I can wear. Having them around me, climbing on me, holding my hand, etc. makes me more radiant than all the jewels of Spain.
It was a very tender moment. Beth's clear blue eyes were open, watching me. She is so special and I am so lucky to have her as my daughter. She is so good, rarely crying. And so sweet.
I tell you what, I am no good at being pregnant. Each pregnancy has gotten harder than the last, and the first was no cake walk either. But once these babies are born, it makes it all so worth it. Mother is the best thing to be.
Just remind me of this when they are teenagers, okay?
