Yesterday looked a lot like this.
I don't know if it was from the lack of sleep or the continued teething pain, but baby girl was so whiny, cuddly, and clingy yesterday that I was forced to stay on the couch with her.
After church, the only time my booty left the cushion was to make apple crisp for a church function we were supposed to attend, but cancelled to stay home with Ina.
After I dropped off the dessert I went into Target to grab some diapers because I accidentally cancelled my Amazon Mom order and a miracle occurred. I left with only diapers. Nothing else. I didn't know that was possible.
After I put Ina to sleep for the night Dan and I were talking about how cuddling with her is the silver lining to her not feeling so well.
Of course I would rather see her laughing, crawling, climbing, or almost walking, but I will take any chance I get for her to sit still in my lap.
Seriously, there is nothing that has made my arms feel more powerful than comforting my daughter. Knowing I am giving her everything she needs to feel better makes me feel pretty darn strong.
Have a great week!
