Teething?

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on February 6, 2011

I think my sweet baby boy is teething. Already? Can this be? You be the judge…

Swollen cheeks (and swollen gums).

Very sad (and sometimes grumpy) faces.

Gnawing on his hands (and anything else he can get in his mouth).

All tell-tale signs, I say .

What are some other symptoms Not-So-Tiny Tim is displaying? Well, he’s been drooling up a storm and hasn’t been nursing well. I’m happy to say, however, that he hasn’t had a fever. Nor has his sleeping pattern changed much… Or, maybe it has and his  Mama is just too tired to notice.

My poor baby. He’s just miserable.

Baby Moods

Nothing changes faster than your baby’s mood. See our Timothy as a case study. These photos were taken over a period of about two minutes.

Kids’ Talk :: Timothy

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on November 8, 2010

Just days before our littlest guy was born, you heard all about what our older children thought about his coming arrival. Can you believe Timothy is already 4 weeks old? Well, we were curious about what the kiddos all think now. Watch as Ray asks them all about life with a new little brother…

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.

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.

5 days old

October 15, 2010

We had Baby Timothy’s follow-up appointment with the pediatrician today, so we decided to make a family outing of it. Mama’s tired, but Baby is good – a bit jaundice, but nothing that a little sunlight won’t help. Timmy is almost back up to his birth weight, too, weighing in at 6 pounds, 5 ounces!

Baby Update – He’ll Be Here Soon!!

September 30, 2010

Yesterday’s OB appointment proved to be very encouraging! I just had a feeling I was further along this whole time, but I hadn’t seen my OB since my ultrasound. Instead, I had seen the nurse practitioner who only dismissed my measurements, due to the fact that this was my seventh baby and my body “knows […]

Boy or Girl?

June 13, 2010

Y’all know we’re having a baby, but did you know that we should be able to find out the gender of Baby Young on Wednesday? I can hardly wait! In fact, I’m so tempted to run out and buy an Intelligender test, so I don’t have to wait. I hear these tests have a high […]

Quickening

May 26, 2010

Sitting ever so still, I sense a faint tickle inside my womb. I know it’s you I feel and I smile. Your movement makes me think of a butterfly trying to escape my cupped hands. I imagine you dancing, flittering, and flying – like a butterfly – as you grow, develop, and change. Soon we […]
