All the Frills: Five Months and We're Still Hanging In There

Eleanor is now on her way to being six months old! I can’t believe how quickly the time has flown by – especially since, when you’re in the thick of it, it often seems to move agonizingly slowly (the crying that you thought would last for hours, the sleepless weeks that just felt like an eternity – seriously, they call it the longest shortest time for a reason).

She is the most wonderful little person to hang out with and I feel so lucky when I’m with her. I only ever wanted one child and I desperately wanted that one child to be a daughter (so badly that I never even really admitted it to anyone for fearing of someone jinxing it). I experienced two miscarriages, a gruelling pregnancy, and an extremely terrifying birth experience but, in the end, all my dreams came true. I’m really, terrifically lucky.

I can't believe how big she is, and she's so cute! I'm glad you got the daughter you wished for.
Also, it's frightening to think of all the horrible things done to women during child birth, and I know just how hard it is to advocate for yourself when you are in a hospital and everyone around you acts like they know what is best for your body.

Awh, shes growing up and it is crazy how the time is flying. I cant believe my son is 8 months already. I know all too well the joy of having your healthy baby and ending the pregnancy stress. So happy for you!
