It's Friday, my baby boy will be one week old tomorrow. I want him to stay just like he is forever. I am so in love. The misery of pregnancy has completely left my memories. He was so worth all the mood swings, almost peeing my pants, and general uncomfortableness. I can't imagine my life without him.
He went with me this morning to run errands which included grocery shopping at two different stores. It felt as though I was shopping alone. No one wanted in and out of the cart every two minutes, grabbed stuff from shelves or asked to have everything they saw. I walked leisurely and slowly through the aisles instead of the full speed ahead, get me out of here before I scream at my kids approach I normally take.
I am also enjoying watching Mr. B with him. He is one proud Papa to say the least. Although he has always said he wanted girls with both Miss L and little s, it is true that a Dad wants a little boy. I have to fight him just to hold him sometimes. He wants to show him off to everyone. He even asked to take him hunting tomorrow. (So not happening!)
The girls are doing great with him also. I really haven't had any jealous outburst from either of them. The are very gentle and rarely do they have to be reminded. little s calls him her baby.
All in all things are much easier and going a lot better than what I had imagined. Not sure where all my energy is coming from either. I am not really tired, but still a little sore. But ask me next week when Mr. B goes back to work I am sure I will be a lot more stressed.
For now, I will leave you with some pics.
