One Thing That Makes Me Feel Better...

...is looking at this sweet little face.
This is our "Oops!" baby, our bonus, our surprise. I never thought we'd have a son. We had a pretty decent routine down, with two daughters born 18 months apart in 1998 and 1999. We were done with diapers, bottles, teething, carseats, tantrums (ok, maybe not done with those yet...I still throw a fit from time to time).
Boys are verrrrrry different.
I love my daughters like I love life itself, but this mellow, mild-mannered little ball of squishy love is something else. It is so amazing how your heart can expand to make room for a new little person.
I'll just sit here, wiping my nose and being grateful for my newest little blessing.

Oh, feel better soon! Lisa R.'s baby has RSV and is currently in the hospital. I guess there's a lot of that going around.

Your baby is beautiful!!!
