My Daughter

You know every day (seriously, every day) since Myra was born I think about how amazing it is to have a daughter. A daughter.

I have a daughter!!! I am equally in love with my boys, don't get me wrong, but there is something miraculous for me about having a little girl.

It's this amazing feeling where every single thing could go wrong and yet I would still be immeasurably blessed because...I have a daughter.

I could be living in a different country from people I love and ache for and yet it's okay because...I have a daughter.

I could be falling in love with a different country (which yes, is kinda scary for me) but don't worry...I have a daughter.

I could have days filled with stress that end up not seeming so bad because...I have a daughter.

I could (still) be waking up every 3 hours at night to a supposedly starving baby, but sometime through each feeding I smile...I have a daughter.

I could feel like I never have a moment just for myself, but at least I'm daughter.

What's up...

Well, nothing too exciting really...

Myra's been sick. It's pretty sad to hold a tiny baby over a bucket so she can throw up...but it's better than having her throw up all over herself and everything around her. She's pretty much better now and I'm almost caught up with all the barf laundry...ew, sick! :)

Flip the bear came to stay with us! He is the bear from Jimmy's class. Jimmy had so much fun with Flip and was sad when he had to take him back. Tot de volgende keer Flip!

...and that's really about it!
