It's easy to get sucked up into sadness and negativity and depression. It's easy, too, to romanticize being depressed. Society and popular culture has taught us over centuries that it's sorta romantic to be sad and depressed and drinking a beer and smoking a cigarette and crying tears for your lost love.
But I'm here to tell you that's bullshit. Life is happy and it's our minds that make it depressing. Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it. Life is infinitely awesome and filled with so much happiness that it's inconceivable. Even in the worst of situations, life is still amazing. You just need to search for it sometimes. Life is constantly excellent.
It was another amazing day with baby Isabela at the Nick-You yesterday. She was taken off her nasal oxygen and is doing absolutely amazing, so good in fact that she was moved from the main Nick-You area into a nursery which is the last stop for all the babies right before they're sent home.
We're all very excited. There's a pretty good chance that after a week of struggle and tears and heartbreak, our baby Bela might finally come home today. Then we'll be a family.
Here are some pictures of the Galindo Girls plus their new addition at the Nick-You nursery last night ...
... and here's to hoping that Isabela comes home tonight. Cross your fingers for the Galindo family. And hey, did I mention that we have a baby registry at Target? And that you can buy something and automatically have it shipped to our address? Neat, huh?
