It's amazing to me how much pain I will go through for this child. And she's only 3 months old. Over those 3 months, I gave birth unmedicated (although I took 2 hits of stadol during labor), the first week of breast feeding was very painful as my boobs got used to it, we then battled a milk blister/plugged duct and thrush around Halloween and another milk blister/plugged duct just after Thanksgiving. She apparently absorbed some of my cats' DNA which caused her to have claws and a bizarre love of doing a kneading motion generally only done by my cats. She likes to slowly slough my skin off with her nails. She also some times likes to clamp down her gums on my nipple. 

Not to mention the 9 months prior of off-and-on nausea, hip, and back pain. 

And I love her more than anything, and I would do it all over again. 

This smile makes it all worth it.
