Erica was born a little over a month ago and life will never be the same again.
It has been five years since we had a brand new baby in the house and even though I thought I knew what I was getting into, there were things I forgot (like, nursing every 2 hours even after the first 2 weeks) and new things (like having four kids in school with assignments, projects, and after school rehearsals).
But I wouldn't trade little Erica for anything in the world. We are so glad she is here. In the middle of the night when she wakes up I struggle to my feet and wander over the the crib. While half-asleep, I nurse her, and when she finishes I put her on my shoulder and feel the sweet little angel cuddle up to me and go to sleep. Her little head full of black hair brushes my cheek and I kiss her and fall in love with her all over again. I am so blessed that I could have my dreams come true five times.
