7 weeks

Blueberry is 7 weeks old today. It boggles the mind. What boggles my mind even more is knowing that so many women go (or have to go) back to work at this point. Just the idea of leaving this precious little being right now breaks my heart. And that's not even addressing the practical issues with it. Her schedule is still so much in flux, trying to imagine coping with that but not actually being around to be in tune with her would be so hard. Plus, only seeing her at night when she tends to be her fussiest and never experiencing the sweet moments of sitting on the couch with her first thing in the morning, singing songs and making her smile at me during her happiest, most awake period of the day--sad.

My prayer over her today: God grant us wisdom and open the right doors for us as we raise this child.

Charlaberry is precious! And I think you're doing a great job taking care of my niece!

I have something for your child. It was cute and $3. So I bought it. But I need to give it to you very very soon or it will lose it's relevance.

Oh, and I found this recipe. I think you'd love it. It's naturally gluten free, so you would not have to adapt it except for your special chocolate chips without soy.
