Number Six

Six Signs It's Time For Another Baby...

1. You can no longer lift the current "baby."

2. Your other children cup their hands and talk into your belly, "Hey in there...There's an empty seat in our van!"

3. You're out shopping and see a dress you like. You stop to look and realize that it's a maternity dress and rather than walk away, you actually stand there and consider buying it anyway. (Darn, why didn't I buy that dress?)

4. You buy a new house. New house, new baby. Everybody says so.

5. You're on the brink of having everyone out of diapers.

6. You just really miss that new baby smell, the little o's they make with their mouths, the soft skin against your cheek, the first baths, the little onesies, the tiny socks, their sweet sleepiness, and the joy of a new life in the home. And you just can't wait to share that with the children you have because they are old enough now to help out and enjoy it all with you.

We're very happy to say, we're just passed six weeks along with baby number six!

Margaret in Minnesota said...

Dearest Suzanne, congratulations. My husband and I read this list together and while he laughed at Point No. 2, I got a lump in my throat over No. 6. Yes, that's exactly it. That is the beauty of babies...along with so much more, of course.

Be assured that I will keep you in my prayers, and congratulations again.

Kansas Mom said...

Congratulations! Sounds like your family is trying to pack as many good-stressful events into a year as ours (new job, new home, new baby). May you be well and as energetic as necessary to get settled before baby arrives, especially in these early months!

God bless!

Suzanne,
I never got a chance to properly thank you for your prayers for me in my last pregnancy, but now I can return the favor!
I have been in and out of the blogosphere, in large part because, as you well know, having two under two is a lot fun and hard work!

Kristen
PS- Do you think you might find out the sex of this baby or are you fuddy-duddies like us and want to be surprised...

I was wondering when we'd be hearing this fabulous news. When I saw Nicholas's age change to 3 on your blog page, I thought you might be missing that "new baby" scent. Congratulations!
