My daughter and I got off to kind of a rough start. I had an emergency c-section after 22 hours of labor. She went on a nursing strike at 2 1/2 months old. I was a brand new mom and had no idea what I was in for, with a crazy hormone cocktail to top it off.
We had to work at our bond. It took months for me to be comfortable caring for this little lady, and even longer to remember to start caring for myself. Now, I am happy to say, that we are extremely tight. I get to hang out with her every day, and literally watch her grow into an amazing young lady.
