Baby love

I am, yet again, head over heels in love with my baby. There is just no greater blessing in this life than these little people.

 Snoozing at the lake


You may laugh, but whenever I have a baby girl, I pity moms who have a baby boy. Whenever I have a baby boy, I pity those who have a girl - because I am convinced that whatever baby I have is just the epitome of perfection. And they all are, each in their own special way.

 In the swing


Stephen is 14 weeks old now, and as such, pretty easy-going. His one great need is to always have someone's undivided attention, or to be held. Miriam will sit by him, bouncing him while chattering and playing with him, indefinitely. It's her favorite "chore." We are not spoiling him, he is spoiling us.

 My favorite time is going to bed each night and finding this little cutie asleep in my spot, all warm and cozy. It is the best possible ending to any given day, good or hard.

At the zoo


And, of course, I love going to church for every service, giving me more time to do nothing but sit and hold Stephen, soaking in all his deliciousness while rocking him comfortably.


Going to church


He is such a little man


We should all be so blessed!!!

  3. Just looking at him reminds me of those precious baby heads resting under my neck as I hold them. Actually, I just noticed we are expecting again. Since we have 2 girls and 2 boys, maybe we'll let it be a surprise this time... I say that, but I probably couldn't follow through with not knowing- haha. It's hard to believe I'm really 'with child' for the 5th time and we'll hopefully be a family of 7 in 9 months. Something about getting to #5 feels like entering a new category or something- but maybe I'm just silly.

  5. He's adorable and I agree children are the greatest blessing. Would love more.
    Just wondering..you have mentioned that you co sleep.Do you night nurse? When do your babies wean an how do you go about doing it? I co-sleep and the night nursing seems to keep my cycles away...that has been my pattern anyway. My LO just turned 1.

  8. He is so precious! It's so nice to hear people refer to their children as a blessing because it isn't very common these days. A friend of mine at work was telling me that she can't have children anymore because she is 34 and that is considered high-risk. I told her she was crazy and that was just to scare people from having children. We should be fruitful and multiply! <3 Nina

  9. Hi Zsuzsanna,
    I'm one of your anonymousie readers/commenters.
    Haven't been reading here, been too busy fainting, puking, crying "no more please, no more" and any related 1st trimester fun activities : ) We are past halftime now.
    I can totally relate to this post because Ours will be a boy, too.
    I adore girls, I totally do. Yours are very pretty too. Becky is a heartthrob, Miriam is a lady in every picture, showing an immense amount of grace for her age, and Annie... Annie is the perfect doll if there's ever been one.
    But I'm soooo happy it's gonna be a boy. I adore his Dad, he's so much better, cuter, sweeter, smarter than I am, I don't even know what he likes about me.
    I can't wait to kiss his toes, his tummy, thankfully he now already looks like his dad. Whew. I'll babysit little girls because He is going to be our only child, I'm risking my life carrying him. He's healthy, so far perfect but I won't risk another pregnancy, I don't want to leave this child motherless, I have serious issues, we thought I'd never make through the 1st trimester. There have been weeks where I was rushed to the ER 4 times.
    Now I'm only nauseous when I smell Indian food - me former favorite... And I'm craving sushi which is a no-no.
    Enjoy your baby. I'm hanging upside down kinda, all the blood is in my head. I can have 2 short bathroom breaks a day. But everytime I look at a boy like yours, I know what I'm doing.
    I'm wishing your family all the best.

  11. So sweet. Remember that idiot who said he was wishing for a miscarriage? What a Jerk. I'm so sad he doesn't see what a blessing children are. I don't think that person understood what he was saying. He can't say that now. I don't know anyone who could possibly say what he did looking at baby Stephen smiling at them.
