two months and a little scared.

today is ellie's two-month birthday! she's so incredibly lovely. she's swinging right now -- her all-time favorite, well, besides showers. she's smiling to herself and gurgling to herself and basically being the most wonderful thing i've ever seen.

the past couple days i've been reading some old blogs. i think i'm going to have to print out all the ones i wrote during my pregnancy (that's a lot of paper, folks) and save them in a book.

just this morning i read this one.

oh, how far we've come. my admonition to the Father to send me what i needed to make it as a mom has been overwhelmingly and unexplicably met. i just hope He doesn't stop any time soon because i'm gonna need a lot more.

we have to go to ellie's doctor at 10:30, and she's supposed to get several vaccines. when we were there for her one-month she got one shot, and i almost cried. today she has to get at least four, i think, and one of them is supposed to make her sore, tired and possible give her a fever.

i don't want it...

she's so sweet and happy kicking her legs right now. it seems ridiculous to give her something that will knowingly make her hurt. but i guess it's for the greater good. like chemo or something. only not nearly that severe.

oh, just pray that she's not too uncomfortable. it's going to break my heart.

happy birthday, my sweet ellie. i love you more than you will ever know.

(this is ellie smiling this morning on her two-month birthday. no, no, i agree. there never has been a more beautiful child.)
