Postpartum and Precious in Pink

Just in case you are wondering, I have not fallen off the face of the earth... at least not physically.

You may not know this, but with each of my children I have gone through a period of postpartum anxiety/depression. With my second son I handled it pretty well, so I thought I was prepared for what would happen when Audrey was born.

Turns out I was not prepared. This time has been very different from what I expected, and it has been incredibly hard. So hard that I don't really even want to think about it right now.

But through the hard times I know I have been incredibly blessed. So many friends, family and neighbors have been there for me and helped as much as they could. That and all the little blessings help me know that I have not been alone in my struggles.

I feel like I have turned a corner. I feel like I am finally winning the fight. I am finally enjoying my boys and my baby girl.

I feel HAPPY.

Don't I have the cutest baby girl ever?
