Sweet baby has been getting the reputation of being the most fussy baby we have had. But as the pictures below prove - she is not always cranky. I am beginning to wonder if maybe she is the same as all the other kids were and it is my attitude that's different. Maybe my expectations are different. Maybe I am being prideful in wanting things in my home a certain way and not patient with tiny baby's needs. I don't feel particularly impatient with her - just stressed about all the things that need to be done. I hate the idea that I may have labeled her as a fussy baby just cause I don't have a good attitude right now. I have prayed that God will show me where I need to change. I do not want to waste this precious time with my children being stressed and overwhelmed. I don't want to put the things in my house over the people that live there - if Esther needs me to snuggle her I don't want to be frustrated about dusty furniture. I'm rambling now - I guess I am really wanting to have the attitude that God wants me to have. So I am praying He will give me the grace to be the mother of all these beautiful children He has blessed us with!!!
