Just so you know, I like being a mom

This morning my brain doesn’t seem to be working properly.  I went to bed at 6:30 last night.  I was so tired yesterday that all I wanted to do was sleep.  I woke up this morning not feeling any fresher or brighter.  I sure feel like I have preggo brain, but after a year and…

Swelling

It doesn’t seem possible that a heart could hold so much love until you give birth and you experience its amazing capacity to stretch and fill and grow.
