Can You Believe...

...the baby is 1 month old already?!
Daddy and baby napping together. Baby's foot is in Daddy's shirt pocket!


1 month later, and the girls are still asking to hold their "baby brudder" 10 times a day! Oldest just loves holding and rocking him.
Love that baby face! He naps on the couch next to me so I can keep an eye on him.
Such tiny little toes and feet! I can't stand it! I'm always holding his little feet while I'm nursing him. His foot is exactly the length of my middle finger.

Please pay no mind to the stains- I had a moment of insanity and bought a white sofa cover. with 4 kids. four kids. I had an idea from a magazine that had a couch with a white cover on it and the decorator said when it got dirty she just threw it in the wash with bleach. She obviously doesn't have 4 kids. Bleach doesn't work on every stain. I planned to dye it, but I have 4 kids, who has the time?

He is a tummy sleeper. Just like me. He may look like the husband, but he sleeps like me! He may have the husband's toes, fingers, chin and nose, but he sleeps like me! I love how he pulls his legs up and tucks his arms underneath. Makes it easy to see how he was inside my belly.

Happy 1 month birthday, Baby!

Hi Jenny,

Have been reading your blog regularly, but due to some firewall settings at work, am unable to comment! logged in at home today so thought of saying a hello, and telling you that your baby looks so adorable! And so do all of your girls! my little nephew (2 months old) sleeps exactly like this, with his legs pulled up and arms tucked under him! here's a picture of him sleeping like this in the link below...

Finally, a daddy! Thankyou for realizing my request. Yes, yes, I think this baby looks like his daddy, which is as it should be. The baby looks fair, like two of the girls. Baby looks healthy and well fed!

This was a truly special post from you, very colorful and everyone looks happy!

I have to agree, he does look like his daddy and who knows in time he'll gradually looks more like you.... it's nice to have two of two in a person like your baby boy.. I love that picture of him sleeping on his tummy as I actually love sleeping on my stomach alot lol.. Wouldn't it be an awesome black and white picture to hang it up in his room...(don't you wish they stay this small forever??) lol

keep blogging, smile

:o)

He does look like his father.

Beautiful photos... I really find newborns' feet most beautiful... amazing that they outgrow the "beautiful" stage in a few decades, to adult, awkward-looking stage ;o)
