We've been going through a period of trials with our children, and having the extra reinforcement feels amazing to my weary spirit.
AV's involve severe acid reflux, an appointment with a GI specialist, teething five bajillion teeth at the same time, and waking up about five times a night because of it.
|case and point. can you see them in there?|
The next night we put the baby gate up in her room for her safety (so that she wouldn't be wandering about in the middle of the night) and for our sanity. Yesterday, she figured out how to climb over that.
|I mean, can you imagine this sweet thing causing such a ruckus? :)|
But it's trying.

A new baby
A baby sister
The day finly came. My mom said that she was going to have a baby girl. I had aways wished for a sister and now I was going to have one. I could not take my mind off it. She was due in October that was like four months. I could hardly wait. Finly the month of October came. I could hardly wait till the day she was due came. Finly on October 21st my baby sister was born. She had jet black hair and did not cry much and her name was Rebecca. I could hardly wait for her to come home.
It was a Wednesday and my mom and Rebecca were coming home. But I was sick. By the 3rd day I was like what is with my parnents. Rebecca had taken all the love from my parnents that belonged to me. They always said "oo" and "ahh" I did not like it!!!
At 2 months
It is later on and my sister is 2 months. And my sister just does not like to ride in the car. I do not understand it why does she act this way. At 2 months it is a strange stage.
What about me! What about me! You do not love me anymore. I feel like runing away. I want to send that baby back to the baby store.
:) (and it's even better with the pictures, too.)
Well, I guess we all know now where my girls get their dramatic side.
Thank you, Aunt Pam and Uncle Jerry for preserving this for me. I love that you and Grandaddy knew how much I would cherish reading this so many years later - especially now that I have two little sisters of my own.
And, Becca, I love YOU! 20 years later, I'm glad they didn't send you back to the baby store.
|Ok, well, this picture is of Becca and me from like six years ago and from my old computer - I couldn't get it to flip around, but let's all just pretend I did!|
