Re: August 2009 Babies ~ Happy Birthday!!

Ah yes, these babies grew up way too fast.
Maddy has the best personality but does have a bit of sass about her. lol I love it though.
I miss her squishy newborn-ness. Of course, that makes the baby fever strong and depresses me with the thought of not having anymore kiddos. *sigh*

Hmmm I wonder where she gets the sass from?

I know the feeling! But at the same time I am enjoying the stage where I have a few minutes to shower while the bigs can keep an eye on her. And I'm looking forward to the stage where they can all stay with the bigs at home while I make a quick trip to the grocery store or post office. And looking forward to the day that they are all big enough to take care of themselves at grandma's house (she can't take the babies with her severe rheumatoid arthritis).

And I agree with Hadley each stage has something special to offer, I like all the stages, well at least up to almost 12, tell you when we get there this fall if it's good to!

Hadley - I agree that this stage is so sweet. All the hugs and kisses, snuggles and cuddles, cute expressions and crazy attitudes make for so much fun. But at the same time can drive you a bit crazy (in a good way LOL) Aiden is opening doors now and I'm so glad the the front door in much harder to get open. I'm so worried that he will figure it out soon and take off out side without me knowing. He is Mr. Independent these days. Yesterday he put a pair of sunglasses around his neck, and was trying to get his shoes on. It was so funny to watch. Watching them grow up is so bittersweet. I love watching him learn new things but sad that his babyhood is slipping away.

Crissi - that must be so nice to be able to have you olders be able to watch the littles for you. I am one of 6 (#2) and I know that my parents liked being able to go off and do some shopping and not have to bring everyone with them. Especially as we got older. Those days are WAY in the future for me....bummer! LOL!

Re: August 2009 Babies ~ Happy Birthday!!

Oh, forgot to add...I got 4 covers from Blueberry/Swaddlebees clearance for $25! They were $5 a piece and $5 for shipping! I always wanted to try a minky wrap, but $20+ was WAY out of my price range. Now I get to try one for $5!!! Granted it is a large, so Aiden will have to wait a bit before using it, but Averie can use it at night since she hasn't bee staying dry lately. The rest were ABC wraps. Can't wait till they get here!

Nicole, for a nap!

Hadley, I will have to agree, I love being a mother. Motherhood is just awesome.

Julie - Apparently, the name Madeline/Madilyn must mean sass..because when she isn't being the cute happy baby, she's got some SERIOUS sass to her! What an attitude!

Wow! She hasn't napped for two days! So glad she is taking a nap now. Aiden would be a wreak if he didn't get his two naps a day. Ask Mae eacdh time she has seen him it is when he should be napping and he gets cranky and starts throwing himself on the floor. Boy I'm glad he still naps though (and so does Averie) I NEED my afternoon break
