Oh that sweet little baby smell. Those light little sighs. Gassy grins. I just can’t even.
Coleen had her baby boy last week, and today the kids and I went over to meet him. My ovaries are singing LOUDLY.
I mean, we’re done. It’s all but official, but oh I can’t help thinking “what if”. This little man is a total doll baby. I have a feeling I’ll be stopping by quite frequently just to get a whiff of his sweet baby perfume and to hold his teeny tiny body.
I find myself staring at my kids right now wondering how in the HECK THEY GOT SO BIG?
Miss E will be three in less than two weeks. My baby will be three. My big boy is starting kindergarten in just a few months.
I’m not a baby mama anymore.
I’m excited about the world that we’re about to enter. This next phase of life will bring plenty of wonderment, but leaving the baby phase behind is bittersweet.
Good thing I still have friends with babies. I’ve got to be my itty bitty snuggle fix somewhere.
