We are at the four month mark, and I have to say we have very few things to complain about. Little M is delightful, and we love to be with her.
While we don’t have many things to complain or be upset about, we, like all parents, feel like there are many things to worry about….and it’s only been four months. Four months is a long time, it’s a third of a year! It’s also a short time, being only a third of a year.
It’s only been four months, and already I find myself impatient for Mackenzie to be caught up. To speak english andcommunicate. To adjust and to bond.
Just four months…and I want her to change so much after everything HAS changed so much.
Just four months…and I have such high expectations?
Just four months…and I wonder if I am being the best mom I can be. Am I giving her the love and support she needs?
Just four months…does she know she can trust us?
Just four months…when will she know how much I love her?
Sometimes, I forget that little M has only just begun her life here with us. Sometimes, it seems like she has been here forever. We are beginning to get into a rhythm, her and I.
I am seeing more and more of her sweet, sassy little personality every day.
But truly, I know we have so far to go, and I can’t wait to see what the next four months brings us.
Happy four months, little M! We love you more every day!
