One Month

My baby is 4 weeks old already! I have so much to say, so much to share! THIS baby experience is so redeeming.

Can I say that?

Seriously. He is such a good baby.

I guess I should say, it is nice to not have so much trauma with the birth of a child. Even with his short NICU stay, it has been an INCREDIBLY good experience.

So much so…

I’m glad they couldn’t tie my tubes. wink wink.

Just kidding.

Foster weighed in at 10lbs this week! Doing great! I never make mention of percentiles, because I’ve never really cared what percentile the kids are in. As long as they are growing – I’m happy.

This big girl just LOVES to hold him – all the time. She asks me everyday if she can hold him. She holds him well with her little hands. Talks to him. Sings songs to him. Points out everything to me all over again. If I need a 5 minute break, she is quick to help and hold him. It is quite adorable.

This little girl loves the fact that he is a LIVE baby doll. She wants to change his diaper all the time. She wants to hold him just like her big sister. She wants to nurse her dollies and pretends to. She doesn’t want me to feed him all the time though. The minute I pull up my shirt, she runs over, shakes her head, “no mama, no.” and tries to pull my shirt down. She really really REALLY wants his pacifiers. Today I caught her hiding behind the curtain sucking on his pacifier. When I ask for it, she puts one finger up as if saying “just one more minute mom” and then takes a few more sucks on the pacifier and then hands it over.

We are doing really really well. He is nursing like a champ – I’ve never had this good of an experience before. I am SO THANKFUL to have it. Bittersweet that this is the last time I will but again, so so so overjoyed to experience it and experience it WELL, just once.

I am so thankful for my 4 children, so thankful that I have these 3 in my arms.

P.S. Did anyone notice I turned his brown overalls AROUND so i could put his tie on and not have the bears underneath? Yep, he is wearing them backwards.
