Actually, I am no longer sleep deprived. Right before Maddie turned 3 months something just clicked in her brain. One night she was getting up every 3 hours and BAM! she sleeps for 7 hours straight. Talk about scaring us! We both got up in a panic trying to make the other one check on her to see if she was still breathing. I was the brave one and checked on her and all was well. It is crazy how scary things can be with a baby in house! And here I thought the worrying would be over once she was born. How wrong I was!
Maddie is now 3 months old and laughing and cooing like crazy. She is such a daddy's girl! She just stares at him and smiles at him. I get a few smiles from time to time, but not like daddy does. She has yet to try to roll over but this could be because she hates tummy time. She is playing in her jumperoo and loving every minute of it too!
Even though it has been 3 months I still marvel at having a little one in the house. There comes a point in the infertility journey that you really do not think that it will ever happen. Yes, we all say that at some point, but in the back of our mind we still hope and dream. But after the 10 year mark I truly did not believe that it was going to ever end for us. Ever! So having a baby is still so surreal to me. Just last night I was holding her and tears started to course down my cheeks. To think that this baby is actually mine!! I hope that I never lose this feeling!
