How Mom's Feeling: Mostly, I'm feeling good. We had a very nice week. We had a relaxed 4th of July, visiting with friends and grilling. Lorelei completely slept through the fireworks! We went to Vasona Park in Los Gatos for a playdate with Jessica and Danica. It was very cute to watch the two girls interact. They are only 3 weeks or so apart. Lorelei even got to try her first amusement park ride: the train! She loved feeling the wind in her hair and looking around. She cried when we got off! We also had a very nice visit with my dad and stepmom Janet. Lorelei was fascinated by my dad's mustache, hat and beer bottle!
They say when you have a baby, you live with your heart outside your body. In so many ways, that seems to be true. I never realized how hard that would be or the way it would effect me. I can't watch movies with violence or tragedy directed at kids or families. I'm preoccupied with the thought of "what if..." It's not helpful or constructive in any way. There are so many times when I think about how I just want to be with Lorelei, holding her, cuddling her and watching her grow and change!
