I’ve had a couple of emotional days lately . . . feeling somewhat hormonal. Its funny how especially after having a baby I can tell when my hormones are influencing my emotions more than usual. (For any men reading this- it doesn’t make it less significant just because it’s hormonally influenced!) I’m much less of a roller coaster now than I was the weeks after giving birth, but it still hits me every once in a while.
The other day I got so tearful over the fact that Ella is already three months old and I don’t have very many pictures of just me and her. I know we can still do it now, but I just wasn’t intentional enough about it so far. So my sweet husband has started snapping pics anytime he gets a chance! Here are two that I love . . .
Last night the thing that made me tearful (it didn’t help that we had just finished watching Pearl Harbor) is the idea that Ella is starting to outgrow the need for her late night nursing session. She is so drowsy it’s almost impossible to wake her up. Then once she gets going she falls asleep before I can switch her to the other side and we have to wake her up again to keep eating. She goes right back to sleep afterward for the night and sleeps until like 7:00am. It is so cute, and it’s really become a treasured time for both David and I. We put her down after we feed her at 7:00 and then we have time to get showered and watch some of a movie or hang out. Then we go in together to get her at 10:00pm and it is the most precious thing you can imagine. I had to post this video so you can see for yourself!
