It is amazing how quickly babies change. You hear that statement so many times, but when you are struggling with a transition, it can be hard to believe it. So goes the sippy cup saga. Was it just a little over a week ago that she finally started drinking from the sippy? Yesterday, she took all of her milk from sippy cups without a complaint. It didn't even mess up her bedtime routine!
I suppose this has me feeling a little philosophical. How often do we feel like a situation in our lives can never change? When you are in the middle of said situation, it is difficult to consider that it will ever end. But you just never know. I have no idea why Kira went from zero interest in her sippy cups to loving them. It just happened. That kind of unexpected, unexplained change can happen in other areas of your life, too.
I've had a lot of trouble with postpartum depression and anxiety, and at times, I feel like I'll never get better. But hey, I never know what day my hormones might settle down. I could go back to feeling normal tomorrow. One thing is for sure, though: as long as I keep feeling like things will stay the same emotionally, then they certainly will.
It is hard to remember to look on the bright side. You never know when a negative will become a positive.
