Good Morning Girls...
This is what I wake up to these last few days. It's so sweet that I'm awake at 6am waiting for it. Big sister can't wait to see little sister, and although that most likely won't always be the case, it's awfully damn sweet right now.
We've had our oh-so early challenges and, of course, there have been small stresses and whispering little worries, maybe even a few tears, but we're doing good, very good. June is feeling strong and confident, Maggie is gaining weight and eating so good, and the sleep...the sleep is nothing like what we experienced with Zoey. Maggie will sleep in giant three hour stretches and although our individual nightly tally is in the 5 -6 hour range for each of June and myself, it's ridiculous how touched by luck we are. First Zed, and now Mags. You can get busy hating us at your own leisure.
My favorite times these days aren't even Maggie moments, but instead those late night and early morning times when it's just June and I and a sleeping baby. In those moments I'd rather not be sleeping.
