Forgiveness and Stuff

I have a 12 week old baby. Having a 12 week old baby is exhausting and at times frustrating but extremely rewarding. Addie is growing constantly. She is changing all the time. We have awesome days full of naps, play time, and smiles. We also have bad days full of tears [sometimes from both of us] and rounds of eating, crying and no napping.

That being said sometimes keeping up a daily post is hard. Sometimes I have nothing left and have nothing to give to Defying Gravity no matter how much I want to. Sometimes I just want to collapse and not think or do anything.

Lately Addie and I have had some bad days. And the last thing I want to think about is Defying Gravity and making sure I have a post for the next day. So I guess I write here now asking for forgiveness if there is no daily post [no matter how much I wish I could keep up daily]. Sometimes I just need to make sure Addie and I make it through the day.

I write this now holding my little girl who just now fell asleep after being awake and crying for the last two hours (she went 8 and a half hours between feedings through the night then woke up and nothing good since), and I know the best thing is to not always post daily. Sometimes I need to let a day or two slide by without a post. Sometimes I need to focus on other things during nap times [like doing those pesky dishes or finally doing laundry].

So I hope to get keep posting every day (sans weekends and holidays) but if there is a day or two with nothing then we're fine. We are just either having really bad days or really good ones and I'll be back as soon as possible.

This little girl has to come first always:
