Absence makes the heart

Sam is showing new signs of stranger anxiety. It passes relatively quickly, but, for the first time, he's doing all the "I want Mama!" behaviors.

Is it screwy that I find this so gratifying, being needed so intensely? While simultaneously worrying that he'll be plagued by the separation anxiety that I'm told I had as a toddler...

I am just making my way through Mel's blogroll, looking for some pregnant-after-fertility blogs, but just as happy to come across some new-mother stories, too.

I have a ten-year-old daughter (yes, my husband and I have been together this whole time, trying for another)and am now 4 months pregnant after IVF. So much has changed since my daughter was born that I thought I would see how other people who have actually made it to motherhood are doing. Look for me in the comments!
