Kelle Hampton has inspired me yet again with this post.

Her words really hit home to me: I am capable.

It's my new mantra. Although I've decided not to go into detail about my PPD (since my story is a work in progress), it's still a part of my reality. It's a constant battle, but I am capable. I have a healthy and beautiful baby girl who is sleeping through the night [8-9 hours!] I have the most amazing husband who has been by my side And I have a family who loves and supports me unconditionally.

I have so much. And there are people who have much less, and who are going through tougher times. And although PPD isn't a piece of cake, it's not forever. And I'm getting help. So for now, I take it one day at a time. 

I do it for me. I do it for Blake. And I do it for my daughter.

Speaking of my daughter.... Emmy is growing up! Gosh, I love this girl so much.
