Because the needs of these four little people don’t go away just because I feel awful.
So I put on my happy face and I do what little I can to take care of myself and I go on being mommy.
I didn’t remember just how expensive diapers are for newborns. Ember doesn’t fit into size 1 yet and the cheapy brand diapers start at size 1. So Pampers it is for now even though my wallet cries every time I buy a box.
You know what Ember really, really likes? Breastmilk.
I was wearing a white tank top in the middle picture, it kinda looks like a bra but it’s not 😉
Ember tricks mommy into thinking she’s deep asleep. What a funny joke it’ll be when the second mommy leaves the room the crying starts!
I love little baby kicks and spastic movements! I’d forgotten all about these! The squirms and grunts and funny faces are also fun to watch 🙂
I’d be mortified if anyone heard the stupid things I come up with when I’m talking to Ember (in a sappy, high pitched baby voice, nonetheless) but she loves to listen.
Cute little belly button!
“This is how you burp her, huh mom?”
Back in 2008 I took some pictures of me and the kids by our neighborhood park. They have always been some of my favorites and so today driving home I thought, I have four kids now, I should retake those shots!
Here are the three from 2008:
And here are some from today 🙂
Payson was thrilled when I let him push the shutter again.
I love this one that Payson took!
I don’t feel very well but I sure do love my kids!
