And now for something happier

Thanks again for all of your comments and e-mails regarding the hard time I'm having right now. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your support. I'm going to see how the next few days go, and if I'm not feeling differently I plan on calling my doctor.

In the meantime I'm going to remind myself of one reason why I should be so thankful.

My peanut.

Her {almost} never ceasing smile.  The brown eyes that Daddy gave her, so big and bright. Watching her explore, discover, grow. I am so fortunate. Blessed.

We tried on her Meerkat Halloween costume yesterday evening and let's just say it was interesting. As captioned by Carina...

What is this THING on my head?
Seriously, Mom. I am NOT feeling this.
I tried again this morning, right before we left for the local Mom group's Halloween party. Fortunately, she did a bit better! Maybe the opportunity to gnaw on tasty goodness distracted her from her costume loathing?

I'm lovin on this carrot right now
Want to get in on this?
A number of the people there weren't sure what her costume was supposed to be. I forget that not everybody watches Meerkat Manor on Animal Planet and is well acquainted with the oh-so-tiny-cuteness. When I saw this costume on sale for $4.50, I just couldn't turn it down. I don't mind having to tell people she isn't a Monkey or funny looking Lion Cub. Oh well ;)

I'm coming to get you, Mommy!
I'm not getting into mischief...
Being a Meerkat is hard work...time to crash
She laughs, and I melt.

Instant happiness.

If only she could giggle all day and night, then maybe I would feel like myself again?
