Well, some may wonder, "What's life with Summer like?" I should respond with something like "think of a beautiful warm day, a light breeze, relaxing under the shade of a tree, maybe a nice dip in the pool..." But then I'd be lying! :) Life with a newborn is hard work! Boy do I love this little girl but let me tell you, one day I think I have it all together and the very next day just proves me wrong! One day we'll be in total sync together, nursing goes smoothly, naps are golden and she may even sleep for a whole 5 hour chunk! Then the next day it's all out the window and it's like we're starting from scratch! :) But I am so grateful for her! I love her! I love that I get to hold her anytime I want without having to worry about cords or monitors or nurses needing access to her. I love that I get to be her mom. I get to see her grow and develop. I love that she is sharing herself with me. I love how she looks at me. How she smiles at me. I love the many things I get to experience with her that I didn't get to experience with her sister. Cali's life was so brief, there are many things that I have loved experiencing with Summer that I just wonder how it'd be different with Cali. Loving Summer has changed me. Just as loving Cali has. She has given me the world. The world of motherhood that I had only glimpsed with Cali. My heart grows with love for both my girls daily!
So what's life like with Summer? It is a beautiful sometimes stormy day. But, after all it's after the storm that we get the rainbow, and we all know it's worth every drop of rain to get the rainbow.
