Oh Baby....number four?

Yes, I have to say that baby fever has hit me again. I know my kids are all able to go to bed without rocking, wipe their own hiney (yes diaper free after 8 years), and feed themselves.....but still there is that yearning to hold a little one in your arms, watch them suckle at the breast, sing them to sleep, and the awe one feels seeing them reach milestones. Babies are just...... well..... irresistible! What in the world you ask brings these feelings up after things were pretty much "fixed" so to speak. We had the "Oh yea well I birthed three children and carried them for nine months each, so I am thinkin' its your turn baby". But tell me who could resist this little jewel?
Blake is back in our lives a couple of days a week. We ALL really love having him around. There is something about watching the love of your life and the father of your children play with a baby.....it just takes your breath away and I thank my lucky stars that I have such a terrific man in my life. Check out these pictures with his own little sugar pies!

I have thought about the all night feedings, diapers up to your elbows, spit-up laden shirts, never feeling like you have a moment for yourself, and just falling into the bed every night knowing that you won't possibly hear the baby if she cries, but waking the second she does........ so I guess for now we'll just enjoy Blake and the Foshee Five will stay that way, but we can at least keep practicing!
