New Perspective

20 weeks of nausea

4 marital disputes

6 teary outbursts for no good reason

5 stretch marks

12 hours of gut-wrenching labor

1 belly button that will never be the same....


And yet it now seems like such a small price to pay.

For this.

So sweet. Even though Myles is only 4 months older, it's hard to believe he was ever so small and helpless.
Hope you're hanging in there with the newborn stuff.

BTW: I think you're officially allowed 10 teary outbursts. Good thing you saved a few for Little Guy's first day at daycare.
