My Baby

Dear Simon,

We are blessed by the joy of a baby in our house again. I forgot all the wonderful feelings and experiences that come from having a baby:

How sweet you smell, even when we forget to bathe you for a couple days because we are so busy chasing your brother and sister into the tub.

How one big grin and one little giggle can make my whole mess-of-a-morning beautiful again.

How determined you are to roll on your tummy (which you accomplished) but cannot figure out how to roll back (still working on it!).

How, even though you are only three months old, you have your own (loud) opinions about what you want (such as NOT to be put into the bouncey seat so Mommy can take a shower).

How warm and snuggly you are when you are tired and want to nurse or rock to sleep.

How one slobbery, smiling, lovely chunk of 16 pounds can make our family so happy.

We love you, Simon!

He is such a cutie-pie. To quote one of my favorite movies - he is "such a delicious baby". If you can guess which movie, I promise to come visit before Jamie starts high school :P

Simon is beautiful!! Love that big smile! You almost forget what it was like to have a regular happy baby. I was suprised too when I had Laurel. So glad we decided to be brave and try it again! xoxo
