Seven weeks ago I was in awe that we had eight children…a brand new little one.
And here I sit, seven weeks later, still completely blown away.
Each new child fits right in. Each new child blows me away every time. Each new child waits until I start a new blog post to start screaming in the sling behind me… pause… ;)
Where was I… oh yes, these kids… they do something crazy to my heart. All you mothers out there, you probably know. It's extremely hard to explain, but I just love it. I'm sure you're tired of hearing how much I love my kids and family but here's more… I can't help it ;)
We're always asked "was this one planned?" "Is this the last one?" "You want moreeee!?" And when I hear those questions, I just smile… and really what I should be doing is carrying around this next photo because come ON… my ovaries, oh my poor ovaries!
There was an extreme amount of snuggling while in the hospital… which has continued through to this day. It's hard to put him down… obviously :)
lots more snuggling
and of course I did a 'newborn shoot' right in the hospital. Will is a natural.
These get chewed on… uhhh lotttt.
again… aching ovaries…they may need to be removed. yessss, I realize he's still whittle ;)
and then we brought the little animal home. and he's not so little any more. and that makes me sad and at the same time oh so happy that we're so blessed with healthy babies time and time and timeeee again ;)
