Has it really been 2 months?

Two months ago, this little guy entered our lives. After visiting the Dr., we know that he is a strapping 10 lbs. 2 oz. and is sailing along in the 25% of height, weight, and head circumference. Wow, I sure grow 'em big.

Last year at this time, I was unsure if we were going to be able to have another Bisel baby.
I gave away all our baby stuff. Clothes, swings, bouncy chairs, all went to a consignment shop or to good will. I felt I had to purge myself of everything baby related in order to not obsess about the fact that we weren't able to conceive.

Enough happened last year to leave me wondering...What am I supposed to learn from all of this? For months, I didn't understand, I couldn't see the good coming forth.

Until now. This sweet baby is enjoyed more than I ever could have thought. The sleepless nights aren't as frustrating as they could be, and the laundry piling up doesn't cause me emotional breakdowns. Motherhood, this time around, seems calmer and certainly more appreciated. And, that, is a blessing indeed.

Oh my goodness, he is the cutest thing ever!
I feel for ya, I am trying to decide if I should keep around the baby stuff or get rid of it.

He's very cute!
I was in the same boat as you were, We thought we were done after 4 children. We got rid of everything, I mean everything!! Then last year on 11/11 I gave birth to baby #5 (boy, Drew). Currently I am 33 weeks pregnant with baby #6- due 12/27. Child #4 and #5 are 5 years apart and child #5 and #6 will only be 13 months apart! Funny how God works sometimes. Well worth the wait for sure!

He is just so sweet and tender. I just think he is one of the most handsome little guys and I can't wait to watch him grow and get to know his personality! So far, he seems just like Mitchell...with his looks and his sweet personality!
