My Mantra

"I don't need a baby. I have a baby. I don't need a baby, I have a baby."

Lather. Rinse. Repeat.

A friend of mine had her 4th child yesterday (accidentally at home!). A son.

I got to hold him tonight. And snuggle on him. And breathe in his sweet baby scent.

And it was wonderful.

BUT.

I do NOT need a baby. I have a baby.

And as if on cue, he wakes.

Are you guys finished at 4? Sometimes when I hold my baby I can't imagine not having a little one to hold. And then I remember that they all turn two eventually.

We really do feel "done." We're not taking any permanent steps at this point.

I just really really love newborns.

It's hard isn't it, Paul who was originally convinced he was done at three can't wait to have another one. I have to keep reminding him to behave, it's too soon for another one!

I have that same mantra!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE babies. even when I leave mine home with Dad I find my self stealing other peoples lol.
However I dont like 12-36 month olds.
So I guess my mantra would be more like "babies grow up, babies grow up....."

Like Becky, I'm chanting the same mantra lately! It's insane, Sweetums will be six months old next week, but I love me some newborns!
