Baby Love

My baby. My sweet four month old baby. I haven't written much about him have I, or my other sweet babies? Having baby K has made me fall in love with L & R all over again. If I catch them in the right light, and tilt my head just so, I can picture them as four month old twins, sweet and pure. My only regret was that I let myself wish away too much of the day with "am I doing this mothering thing right" and didn't let myself just be.

Now I am just enjoying this motherhood thing much more. I know there is no "perfect" except the perfect that exists in my children.

K is four and a half month old now. He is so strong and has been since birth. He tries to sit up from a lying position! I doubt 4 month olds are supposed to do that. He is so happy- as long as you are entertaining him. He loves his big sister R because she adores him, she will sing to him, play with him and he eats it up. L is much more laid back, he loves his baby brother, but has much more important things to do then watch his every move like the rest of the family.

He laughs, loves the song Yankee Doodle and is a chub chub at 16lbs 6oz. We call him sweet thighs. He is a delight to be around, a great baby who has added so much to our family in so many ways.
He has finished our family, made us complete and bonded us even more. For that, well, I am eternally grateful and filled with love.

    Dude. You need to get him a Cartman Beefcake onesie. Or at least a tank top. Pleeeeeeeeeeeeease get one? LOL

  2. aw, i totally know what you mean about enjoying it more the second time around--the first baby i had--i just wanted to live through the days =) now with my little girl i am savoring every delicious second!

  3. Stopped by through MomDot. I have (nearly 4 year old twins) and want a baby again... You've made it that much more appealing.

  4. It is easier with the second, you can just be in the moment more. It is a great thing.

  5. Those darn babies, who told them they could grow up so fast.

  6. Awww, what a very sweet post! I feel the same way about enjoying it more the second time around. I realize now how quickly they grow up and so I want to spend more time treasuring each and every milestone. With my 1st set of twins, I spent so much time wishing for the next stage because as a first-time mom to twins, I was so overwhelmed and everyone said it would get easier as they grew older, which was true, but I wished I would've enjoyed their babyhood more. With my 2nd set of twins, I find myself trying to slow down the hands of time. I just want them to stay little for a little while longer!

  7. When you hear the term “contraceptive pill, most often refers to oral contraceptives containing estrogen and progesterone. Combination pills contain a combination of these two hormones. They are classified as monophasic, biphasic or triphasic pills depending on whether the level of hormones stays the same during the first three weeks of the menstrual cycle or changes.

    The combined contraceptive pill work by preventing ovulation - the release of a mature egg from a woman from the ovary. Estrogen in the pill causes this.

    Monophasic pillsMonophasic pills contain the same amount of estrogen and progesterone in the active pills in a pack. Examples of monophasic pills include Alesse, Brevicon, Desogen, Levlen, Levlite, Loestrin, Modicon, Nelova, Nordette, Norinyl, Ortho-Cept, Ortho-cyclen, Ortho-Novum, Ovcon, Yasmin. Because of the uniform hormone level in all the pills, monophasic are least likely to cause side effects such as mood swings, which can result from fluctuating hormone levels in the body .
