2. Months. Old.

Hooray! We’ve made it (ish). 2 months in, and while I may physically ache over needing even a small amount of REM sleep…life with Abigail? It’s wonderful and challenging all at once. It makes me ache with love and the hope that I have enough patience. It makes me wonder if I have what it takes and fills me with a deep feeling of achievement every single day that we make it, no matter how rough the day.

I finally finished putting my beginner video-editing skills to use in creating Abby’s birth story, movie styles. Nothing too epic, and while I am sure it lacks any real advanced talent in the music-splicing department (is that even the proper term?), I’m quite happy with it. Happy because in my world I don’t have to be a pro at everything and at the risk of sounding cheesy — it’s something we can treasure forever. I put my heart into it. On the day I birthed her and in making the memory … then and now. Forever fluid. In motion.

I posted our birth video on my personal blog today, and after the jump you can see just what has my heart throbbing so, aching with exhaustion. Be prepared for volumes of precious baby glory, burgeoning from newborn to bouncing baby before our/your very eyes.
