Most of you know I'm a little older for having a first kid. There is a reason for that. When I was a little girl I always told my parents I never was going to have kids. As I grew up I still felt this way. Before Jeff and I got married we talked very seriously about kids. I wanted to be sure that he was okay not having kids because I still didn't want them. We went on many adventures together and saw a lot of the world. We had a wonderful life. Slowly over time we both came to the conclusion that something was missing and so we decided to try and have a baby. I was worried throughout my pregnancy that I would have problems bonding with my baby. I have never really hung out with babies, I never coo'ed at babies when I see them in the grocery store checkout line and I've avoided holding them whenever possible. Until I had my baby, I never changed a diaper. Historically, I have found kids fun, but never babies. So, it has totally surprised me that I completely LOVE this little girl. I have bonded and I really feel really connected with her. I am so amazed and relieved. I actually like being a mom! It's tough. I'm tired, but it's good. I really love my little Wren.
I'm sure I'll comment more on that later but, here are some pictures.
