Today marks 12 days since our precious little Serene came into the world. I can't believe that it has been that long already. WOW! Today was her actual due date so I really expected to still be waiting for her. Of course she had other plans and I am soo grateful because I so badly wanted my brother to get to meet her before he went home from Christmas. He took 2 1/2 weeks off of work to be here for the holidays and I would have been so sad if in all that time he didn't get to be here for the birth. BUT, she was a prefect angel and came in time for him to still be here for 6 more days after her arrival!! He was thrilled!
Then of course there is this issue of being a mother to two children.... as you may remember from a former post I was a little concerned with how I was going to handle losing my one on one time with Anna after 3 years. Well as those of you with more than one child promised.... things have fallen right into place. I could never have imagined that I could love another child as much as I love Anna BUT, I do. God must have just put more love in my heart on December 28. I swear I didn't have that much until I heard her first cry and then as my own tears flowed I knew life would NEVER be the same. My love definitely grew in that very moment!
I am so grateful for my incredible husband and these two amazing daughters! I feel overwhelmingly blessed.
