O.K, I Admit it... I'm Smitten!


If you ask me I'll tell you. I'm tired. She doesn't sleep well. She makes me hold her all day. I don't get anything done. The rest of my life has kind of fallen by the wayside. My house is a mess. My laundry's not done. I haven't gotten back into a regular gym routine. All of this is true.

What I won't tell you is...I secretly like it.


If you tell me she is cute I might thank you and tell you she is kind of a stinker. I'll try to be modest. But what I'll be thinking is,"yeah, she totally is, isn't she?"


I am loving everything about her. I love the way she smells. I love the way she smiles when she wakes up. I love the way she tells me sad stories when she stops crying. She says,"ohhh ohh ohh..." I love the goofy faces that she makes.



I love how little she still is. Most of my babies start out big and then chunk up and stay large until they start walking. I love that she is three months old and still my tiny little baby doll.

I love that my family likes to hold her, and her cousins (especially Kylee) will take care of her at family functions.






I love how she looks over my shoulder sometimes and talks and laughs with the angels. I love it when she nurses and gets that milk drunk look on her little face. I love the way she looks asleep on my shoulder

or reclining on my lap


She is my last baby, and I feel like I need to memorize all of the little things. So I hold her more than necessary. And I get less done than I should. I secretly agree with all of the compliments she gets. And dread the day she gets too old to snuggle.


And daily I will fight the urge to dip the child in chocolate sauce and just eat her up!

She is absolutely adorable! Definitely do some nibbling on the cheeks.

She IS a cutie and I love your pictures of her funny faces. There really is something about when you know it's your last one that you hang on just a little bit longer. Now I know why the youngest are always spoiled! :D

Oh, she is totally precious! That's why I want to hold her at church . . . I don't have a baby anymore and I need my fix!

It is fun to relish is their cuteness. Besides laundry will get done and messes will be picked up but memories will last forever. She is too beautiful.

Rhonda said...

Awww! That was the sweetest little post!
She is such a cutie!
I think I second every little thing you said!! I love them babies!!! ;)

Mandi said...

Wow, you sound like me! I think that sounds like a mom who knows this is her last and wants to hold onto it forever (is this your last?). She is darling, and I have no reason to be biased.

I know exactly what you mean I find myself doing the same thing. Knowing it is my last I want to enjoy everything about him!! She is so cute!!!

twin2trip said...

That is so your kid. I think she looks like you. What a little cutie. I am such a baby Mom. I love them when they are little so I totally feel you on this post.

I love tiny babies, too...not that I've ever had anything different (lol). I'm doing the same thing with Cade. Good thing Laura is younger than all of us, we're all going to need a baby fix in about 5years! =) Adorable pics and she is an absolute doll!

macmommy said...

I also had to add my exclamation of shock...she didn't have a headband on in some of those pics! Ha ha, you know you crack me up with those =)

DANI KYNASTON said...

I am the same way!! I even love their tiny cries. I think that as we have more kids, we mellow out more and more. It is probably a good thing, since we would go crazy if we didn't.
