this is EXACTLY me with Olive. she is always smiling and laughing. every time anyone (stranger or no) looks at her she gets this huge smile and laughs. she has been "talking" since she was a few months and since we first brought her home she has smiled and smiled. i look at her and i just don't get it. the birth and even the pregnancy was so awful i expected it to be damaging to her like it was to me. but here she is! my mom calls her Jollie Ollie.
|The baby born at this birth turned out to me the sweetest, most docile, kindest, gentlest person I've ever met. I have trouble reconciling the fact that something so sweet emerged from this crushing experience.|
