Journal 11

A Month and a Half

We’ve had little Violet Eve in our lives for a month and a half and we just adore her. We’ve been peed on and pooped on. We’ve had sleepless nights. We’ve had times when we thought she just wouldn’t calm down, or stop crying, or fall asleep. And we wouldn’t trade it for anything. It hasn’t been easy, but I wouldn’t say it’s been hard either. When the little miss needs something, a change, a bottle a burp, or maybe just a dance around the house, it doesn’t matter how tired you are, or how many times you’ve already done it today, or if you even want to do it all. It doesn’t matter, you just do it. And she rewards you for it. She smiles or gurgles, or she looks at you with those deep gray eyes, and you know why you’re doing it. It makes her happy, and that’s all that really matters.

Take care,

No. WAY.
Awesome, man.
God, she's gorgeous!!
I love her.
More later, I am overcome with the no-wayedness.
