Two months after Gotcha....
We've had Gwendolyn for two months now!
She's such an amazingly happy little girl! I wish I could take some credit for that but much of it must be due to her good genes and the care she got at the Shenzhen SWI. She's just happy!
This isn't to say that her diapers smell like strawberries and cream or her disposition is always cheerful. But she owns our heart and even the stressful things about her just endear her to us more!
After our three pregnancy losses and the river of tears that I often feared would never stop flowing, the universe seems to have made it all up to us. I didn't expect that it was possible (and didn't even think it should be!) but this baby girl really and truly makes all of that other stuff worth it.
I am blessed and honored to take care of Gwen's needs. Babies grow up and they don't need us forever. Right now, I can solve all of her problems with a hug (and perhaps a cookie too). In ten years, it will be trickier!
Two months down, 213 more to go until college! :)
