B is for Babies!
I love babies! I really do love them. The younger the better. Good thing since I have had 5.
There are people who tell me that they find the newborn stage hard. That they would rather skip that stage and hop on over to about 9 months old or so. Not me. Despite sleep deprivation, constantly feeling like I am covered in something that has oozed or projected out a baby’s orifice and the joys (deep, deep sarcasm here) of the first few weeks of nursing, I love taking care of a newborn. I love the act of swaddling, having them sleep on me, dancing around the room soothing them, well, you get the picture.
I have felt nostalgic lately. Number 5 is well on his way to being completely toilet trained and we are not having any more kids. The reality of never having a newborn again is hitting me. I know I am getting old and I know there are days I feel completely overwhelmed taking care of the 5 I already have, but still…I long for a baby.
So, I am indulging my nostalgia and posting a few of my favorite baby pictures. It was hard to choose, but I limited it to 1 picture per kid.
