My sweet little girl is already 16 days old! My husband and I (and the dog) have settled and adjusted to life with a baby and things could not be more perfect. She is such a good baby and is only fussy when she needs something. By day 5 she was sleeping for 2-3 hours at a time at night and now I have to wake her up to eat.
I don't know what I did to deserve her. I am so incredibly grateful for my family. There are no words to describe how much I love my daughter. I knew I would love her (and I loved her since the moment I found out we were expecting!) but I had no idea how deep that love would be, and how much it continues to grow each and every day. I think it's something only parents can understand because I didn't get it until now.
Enough with the sappy-ness, right?
Now that things have settled and I'm all caught up on sleep, I plan on getting back to the books. I'm roughly halfway done with STAY, a new adult, contemporary novel I started about a girl who is kidnapped and forced into human trafficking. (Blog post about that to follow...someday) I am doing some interior makeovers to my self published books and then planning a big re-launch party for them and I have some exciting news from Permuted about the Contagium series but I can't share it just yet.
I have lots of fun things planned and I've added two more book ideas to my list. Having a baby has been very inspiring for some reason. In the few hours of sleep I was able to get a night I did have some weird dreams!
