just comes together

She is starting to stand but wouldn’t today. I had this image in my mind of her standing instead of sitting. But she didn’t want to. She wanted to hold onto me. Then she saw the big safety pin and sat down. And turned all the way away from me. And wouldn’t look at me and even kind of scolded me one time when I called her name. LOL

I had a difficult pregnancy with her. I was very sick and didn’t gain any weight until my third trimester. I had gallstones that went undiagnosed until my fifth month. I had an 8 month looking belly at 3 months. I would have these horrible gallstone attacks that felt like my chest was being crushed. It was absolutely the worst. I know it’s so cliche to say this but when I look at her now, she was worth it all.
