Newborn Bliss

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on October 22, 2010

Words can not express how much I have enjoyed soaking up every single moment with my precious baby these past 11 days. Even though Timothy is Baby #7 I feel like I am able to really enjoy having a newborn for the first time.

I know that may sound weird, but I was overwhelmed with the twins and then each baby came so soon after the one (or two) before that I never really took much time to just enjoy these first few weeks after the birth of a new baby.

Sure, I lack sleep and I’m just as busy as ever – I have six other children who need me, of course – but I am taking the time to just enjoy Timothy in this newborn stage. Snuggling with him as he slumbers, nursing him when he’s hungry (and even when he’s not), and gazing in to his sleepy eyes in rare moments of consciousness bring me such joy.

Timmy and his siblings

My older kiddos are enjoying cuddling with Timothy, too. Julia is such a big help and even Zach has that special touch when Timmy gets fussy. Noah and Ben want to hold him every chance they can, and they get so worried when he seems upset. To be honest, I’m having a hard time sharing Tiny Tim!

This time goes by so fast. I can look at each of my “big” kids to be reminded of just how quickly.

Be Sociable, Share!

awww this is soo sweet! I did enjoy the newborn stage better with our second and third baby, maybe just because I knew what was in store for me (like many sleepless night and days LOL)

Sweet baby. Congrats on baby #7, you are so such a special person. I am glad to know you. Enjoy the time, you are right, little ones grow so fast! I look at my high school boys and wonder where all the time has gone, makes me enjoy the 4 year old even more, as I know how fast time goes by. One day at a time.. Shannon
