I Wasn’t Born Yesterday!!


But I know someone who was!!


Hopefully I will have time to write the birth story soon. (Birth story here!) It was amazing and I feel fantastic. I still haven’t shared my other birth stories.

He is a scrawny little thing, so I should be able to give plenty of advice on newborn diapers and skinny chicken legs! That was surprising, I was expecting him to be as big as his brother (8ish lbs) at least!

My daughter is in love, even though I failed to give her a sister…again. My son is indifferent, but he was so sweet when he consoled his baby brother during a diaper change. “Baby, you OK. Baby dah-purr change. ‘s OK baby.” So sweet!

I am loving my Arm’s Reach Cosleeper and in case you missed the button in the sidebar, I am going to have one to give away too! 😮 Just need to take some pictures and write my post. We just set it up last night because hubby & I both thought the new baby would be later than he was!

Hopefully everyone will bear with me; I have a list of reviews/giveaways I was waiting on the baby’s arrival to complete. That means more good stuff for you guys!

    Congrats, Mama!! What a doll! We also have a co-sleeper and it’s been a life saver

    Your blog is just wonderful. I love hearing that you feel fantastic, that big sister is in love with her new baby brother, and that the baby’s little big brother is good at comforting him. Looking forward to hearing about the homebirth experience. I wish I’d had that option when I had you and your sister and am so grateful that you chose a homebirth. I’ve posted printouts of his photo all over the house for us to see and have tucked one in my wallet with the 4th of July photo.

    Congrats – He’s beautiful! I can’t wait to have another and have siblings; it sounds so amazing and priceless.

    We had that co-sleeper too and LOVED it. After he outgrew it we took it with us camping (10 months, just before he learned to climb out of it!) and it served as an easy play pen… and didn’t even get dirty! It’s packed away now for our next.

    That is really sweet! Congratulations and enjoy your new bundle of joy!

    Congratulations!! I love the ” ‘s okay, baby.” All of our little ones have said that to the new baby in the house. They were all between 15 and 18 months when we welcomed the next addition and the way they try to comfort the baby is so cute. Our 21 month old has started telling the baby (3 months) no and pulling her hand out of her mouth when the baby tries to suck her thumb 🙂
