Chloe overload

Here, in no particular order, are entirely too many pictures of little Chloe. Unless you are me. In that case, this is far too few pictures of this beautiful young sweetie.

 This first one was one of many snapped by Miriam. She is getting really good at using my camera.



Miriam is also quite the little mommy. She LOVES her baby sister to pieces. All the kids are sweet on her - the two little boys and Anna (who are not allowed to pick Chloe up yet) are forever in her face and kissing her, and Becky is always competing with Miriam over getting to hold the baby. The big boys will take a turn with her every day. But Miriam is just ready all day, every day to pounce on any opportunity to grab her baby sister and play with her. It's a blessing, to be sure!


I don't have a pram, though I sure wish they were sold here. Miriam has one for her doll, and uses it for Chloe. They both love it!

 Doesn't she look like a doll??


Chloe just now tips the scale at 10 lbs, which is great growth considering she was born 6 lbs 15 oz just eleven weeks ago, but still puts her in the "small baby" category. She has been smiling off and on since birth, but now does it so reliably I can actually get pictures of it. 



 Isn't she beautiful? Her eyes match that dress perfectly.





  Chloe is a little thumb sucker, and is also one to take a pacifier. 


 

Our faithful sofa is like an old dog - scraggly, but precious because of the memories we have made together. Here it is getting more baby love.


 Miriam loves to dress herself and Chloe in color-coordinating clothes.  

My husband and I went on a date this week to buy a gift for a new baby in church, and I found a tiny dress in Chloe's size that is made of the exact blue floral fabric as the dress Miriam got for Easter. She was SO thrilled when she saw it, and can hardly wait to wear it this Sunday.

As the old proverb goes, "There is only one cute baby, and every mother has it."

  10. She is a snuggly bunny. Well I think that about all babies and she proves me true once again. I love that the older children are so helpful and so loving. This is the example so that when they become parents they already have such a great foundation of training.

    Thanks for the window to preciousness!

  11. Do you REALLY have that child in a toy stroller? Forgive me if I am mistaken, but that's what it looks like. Those things are not safe at all and you should never allow a live human to ride in one.

  12. She's a little doll!! Beautiful girl! She looks like a mix of Becky and Mirian to me. She's definitely an Anderson! Awe!!! Wish we could see her in person! Love and miss you all!!! It's been far too long!

  13. Beautiful baby!! And all your children are gorgeous! Love how you dress your little doll. By the way, there are prams here in the US... And do you give Chloe a pacifier??

  14. You mention that Chloe will take a pacifier - how does that affect the lactational amenorrhoea, and deliberate family spacing you've mentioned? I understood that not using a dummy, and allowing the baby to suckle only for comfort was an important aspect to it?

    1. Just to clarify, when I said "suckle only for comfort" - I use the term to mean the action of a baby at their mother's breast - so that suckling is the only form of comfort sucking, rather than an artificial teat. Not only allow the baby to suckle for comfort and not food!

      I suppose that's fairly obvious, but I know how quickly these things are picked up and misconstrued on the internet.
