I am grateful for this little life, and for the life of my growing family, in ways that I find almost impossible to express. I don't want to make it sound too pretty; things have been rough the past two weeks. I'm recovering from a C-section. Christopher, at 22 months, is adjusting to a profoundly different family life. I've been sick, Landon has been sick, and Christopher has been sick. I can't wait for things to smooth out a little. But there are moments in the midst of this chaos, as many other parents know, I'm sure, that I wouldn't trade for anything.
