It's strange how calming it is to see fresh snow. It lays there so soft & peaceful :) At first I was disappointed because I am not winter's biggest fan, but as I sit here with my hot cup of coffee and sleeping baby I am really getting into the season. All of the fun things ahead come to mind... Halloween... Thanksgiving... CHRISTMAS! All of these normal yearly activities will be so much more joyful with the addition of a perfect little girl.
We are still battling her first illness unfortunately, but I really believe that it is on its way out the door very soon! Three or four trips to the doctor for high fever, labored breathing, and inconsolable crying and we still don't know what it is/was. Last night was another long one, with wakeups every two hours and a stretch of whining for two hours straight (but NOT crying so I am seeing this night as a success, even if I am pretty tired myself). No fever all night, either. Now I think it is just a matter of her getting comfortable, a few long naps, and remembering how good it is to be a happy playful baby :)
I got a good cuddle shot of Keira with her daddy the other day. She really has become a big lover through this and I am liking it!
