Our nest is full


Baby bird #4 has arrived and our little nest is blissful. I have to let you all in on a secret. I am sorry to say that I got all the special babies! Alright...I know you all feel the same way but truly I do feel so blessed to have such wonderful newborns. I just sit and stare at our new little (actually pretty giant 9 pound 20 inch) Warner. He is so sweet and really is a dream baby. He has lots of hair which is a new experience for our family and we all find ourselves "petting" his head all day long. This is the dreamy babymoon stage where he is so sleepy and a greedy little nurser and I just want to wrap us all in this cozy feeling and stay put. The big boys are feeling a bit cooped up since we haven't ventured far from home but they also love to cuddle their new little mascot. It brings tears to my eyes to see how grown up they are next to this little chicken and remember their own births and babyhoods like yesterday. I am amazed at how content I am to wake up to little cries at the crack of darkness knowing this is likely our last. I keep thinking to myself, "There is nowhere I would rather be at this moment."

You described everything so perfectly. I love the dreamy babymoon stage and think everyone should be entitled to as much of that as possible; meaning don't rush to get back to normal life any time soon!

I'm so happy for your family!

He's beautiful, Jen! The babymoon stage is delightful, I hope you are still reveling in it. I also love the feeling of knowing that your family is complete. Congratulations!
