In the early days I spend my day wating for the crying, dreading the next moment she would scream out for attention and need me desperately, even though I just put her down two minutes ago. I was living permanently on edge; on call 24 hours a day.
Now, I wait and look forward to the smiles. Anya is such a happy baby. She smiles when I kiss her, when I raspberry her belly, when I touch her nose. Now my days are a joy, anticipating and living in Anya’s happy glow (yes, even when she cries).
Oh and the quote (which I love) is by the beautiful Lynn Twist
