Feeling better

DJ Chubba Cheeks is mostly recovered from his cold.We even managed a short stroll outside this afternoon. Cubby loves to help with the baby. His kisses and attentions are most surely to blame for the cold germs.

Here is the little man, relaxing in his tub. I take all the credit for that round belly.

I finally became "Mom"

After 6 1/2 years of being "Mama" I have become....Mom. Mom! Chris has also become "Dad".  
Bub is suddenly so grown-up!  Once in awhile, he tries out Cynthia and Chris.  It's pretty hilarious.
The other two better call me Mama for the rest of their lives, though. I love the soft way Cubby says "Mama"  as he burries his face in my neck.  I feel like a Mama has cuddley babies but a Mom has surly teenagers.
There's no halting the inevitably of that transformation, mine or theirs.  We're growing and changing together.
I'm just grateful to have extended my Mama time by one more child.

Mad Face!

Cubby and I have a fun little game called, MAD FACE! I turn on the selfie format on my phone and he cracks himself up making faces. Most pictures I capture during this game are actually happy faces!
Here are two choice mad faces.

Babies in the Mist, or Baby's First Cold

Pickle has a cold! His sad little sneezes and coughs are very worrisome.  I have him swinging beside a humidifier, in and out of cool mist. I hope he can get some relief from his congestion and get some sleep.

I blog because I'm trapped beneath a sleeping baby

If I put him down, he will wake up and cry. I know this from 3 hours of trying. So, I will surrender to human pillow status and post pictures of my children.

Getting much needed haircuts and grocery shopping have become the new "going to the children's museum". Now that I am a mom of three boys, and because it's winter, I'm terrified to leave the house with the baby. I can barely handle the big boys solo and adding diaper changes and feedings would push everyone over the edge.

My solution has been to feed Pickle and leave him with Daddy, giving me two hours to take Bigger and Biggest out.  It's amazing how adding a 3rd baby makes me feel like a rock star when I only have 2 to manage!  We are turning errands into adventures by adding balloons and ice cream.

In strictly baby related news, Pickle smiled a real smile last Friday! Just 6 weeks old and breaking hearts with his gummy grin.  6 weeks old is also the time frame when he shifted from sleepy newborn to easily irritated newborn bent on World domination by screaming.

Hence, the me as a human pillow thing.

Who would believe this face could be guilty of anything?

Baby spam

It's hard to believe that I made such an adorable human! I definitely deserve all of the Cheetos that I've been snacking on. Go me!

Here's the reason I nap

He keeps me up, yes, but he's also the sweetest,  snuggliest nap buddy.

A date with my old Baby

Cubby came with me to do an errand and we had fun playing with all the trucks and dinosaurs. It was the first time he and I had been out together since the baby came.  It was sweet to push him around the store in the wagon while he munched on a donut.
It was a "pocanut" donut in case you're curious.

Pickle is getting curious

Pickle is starting to reach out for people and is interested in grabbing at my necklaces and clothing.  He's is enchanted by this little musical toy and the mobile over the changing table.

Cubby is still impossibly cute.

Although Cubby has been "demoted" from Baby to Middle Child,  he's still bringing his A material in the cute department.

He's a good counter and is now able to get up to 20 without missing too many numbers.  Not long ago, he wasn't able to pronounce the teens, so he would say "oh-teen".
Ten, da-leven, oh-teen, oh-teen, oh-teen, OH-TEEN!

I miss his baby talk as he grows into a big boy.

One month

DJ Rainbow Pants is all tuckered out after his well-baby check up.
He's up to 11 lbs 2 oz!

It's impossible to pick the cutest picture, so here's three.

The Brother

Tonight,  when Chris was putting Cubby to bed,  he said to him,  "Goodnight,  baby", thinking it would comfort him.

Cubby said,  "I'm not the baby,  I'm The Brudder!"

He is so proud to be the big brother to Baby Pickle.

Happy New Year!

We're off to a great start!

The boys are all still happily playing together and I'm sure they would welcome another week of school vacation.
