I just counted. I have 7 friends and one cousin due with their babies within a few weeks of Lydia's due date. And now those babies are all coming, one after the other, being born ALIVE.
And I get sucked down into the rabbit hole of self-pity.
I keep hearing that this blog is impacting others, making them appreciate their loved ones more. And I can't help but wonder: why does it have to be me that does this? Why can't someone else make me appreciate my beautiful new baby and my cute toddler?
At night, I lay in bed and look to where the pack n play should be set up so Lydie can can sleep next to us.
