When I would brag talk about Clara to others, some would warn that "everything changes at 6 months...so beware." I found that advice to be rather strange...and well...rather pessimistic. But I was secretly terrified for what 6 months would bring. And when it came...and her mild temperament remained the same, I was relieved and did a thank you happy dance. And again, at 7 months when she was still our dreamy little one I was still relieved. Maybe our Clara will be the perfect baby forever.
And Tommy and I are beyond exhausted and wondering how having a 6 week old was worlds easier than having an 8 month old? And then we smile at each other because we know we still are the parents to an angel.
