Just like a peach

Today, I had a great day! The kids were pretty good, we got out of the door on time. We had relatively no problems. All good.

The best part of my day, would have been just after lunch. The house was quiet. Caroline was in her bed napping. The two big kids were at school. And after I fed Courtney, and burped her and placed her on my chest all wrapped up in cozy blanket to keep her warm (Carly sat with me, and Catie who fell asleep on my shoulder all cozy under the Christmas blanket...) The nice thing about that time this afternoon was I could rub my cheek on her soft face and her soft little head. And, I could kiss her and stare at her and not get bugged by the others! It was wonderful. I just kept doing that for as long as I could. It was so nice just to enjoy our little baby. Her little head is soft as a little peach. Maybe more like velvet. I cannot decide. All I know is that she is a wonderful little addition to our family.

Oh, now THAT makes me baby hungry! Even though my youngest is still a baby. There is just something about the young babies that is so wonderful!

Amazing... and that's what you have to do - really savor and love those moments. You will cherish them forever!

Oh this just about brought me to tears! I can totally remember savouring the few moments I would get with Jake when he was newborn, when maybe Ash was busy with Daddy. I would just kiss him and hold him and look at every part of him in hopes that I would always remember how he looked at that very moment... I think that's what got me seriously into photography actually.

Enjoy every minute of it cause as you know all too well, it goes by in a moment!

I was thinking... I think Courtney looks like Catie... what do you think??

THAT is my favourite thing about babies. Soft little heads and hair. They are so silky and sweet smelling.

Almost make me want another one. LOL

Ahhh...the baby head, fresh baked, right out of the "oven". By far one of the best things in the whole wide world! :)
