I've got so much on my heart and mind - I hadn't really realized how much of an outlet this thing has become for me.
So - first available opportunity (happy baby, hubby home) I'll sit down and give - at the very least - the story of how Peyton got here.
Oh - and just so people know - it wasn't entirely "spontaneous". We did induce - with the goal of missing all those painful anniversary days. But, for various reasons only the Lord knows, it didn't work the way it was supposed to and Peyton's birthday is the 19th. But - like I said - I'll give more of the details soon.
She continues to be a very content and relaxed baby... great nurser. And (of this I am proud) has brought her weight up to 7lbs, 10ozs as of Wednesday. What can I say? "Mommy got milk!" (chuckle)
Seriously, though - after all the pain of the last year it is such a blessing to be finally able to supply my daughter's needs. Seeing my body prepare to care for a child when she wasn't there was one of the hardest things I had to go through. Talk about a constant reminder...
More pictures coming soon!
Thanks for reading everyone!
