Little Bryce - 10 weeks - he's in the double digits now!
New babies don't last long, do they? They grow and change and show you the passing of time like nothing else I've ever seen! It's enough to make me understand why I find gray hairs on my head these days.
Six children feels alike a lot sometimes, but I can honestly say I will miss the baby years when they pass. I am relishing every moment!
Carolina often walks up to baby brother and leans in next to his downy head, placing her nose in his mop: "'Mel him momma... 'mel he hair!" she insists, and I do.
I lean close to her and take a deep whiff of that sweet baby scent. Sometimes I even close my eyes while I take it in.
Oh how soon he will scoot too fast for me to catch. Then I will have to be content to wash dirty little boy paws.
After that comes replacing jeans like nobodies business! Holey knees are synonymous with active man-cubs.
Adventure sums up the life of a lad, and I love to watch them roam and explore the length, width, height, depth, sights, sounds, smells of this earth. To experience the warm summer winds, the crisp bite of autumn frost, the sounds of rain on a tin roof, the sweat of labor, the pride of hard work done well.
My boys. Ah... I love them. Soon Bryce Endurance will join the ranks of the big and the fearlessly bold.
For now, I bury my nose in his soft hair, whisper sweet nothings into his ear, and plant innumerable kisses on his roly-poly cheeks.
This time won't last much longer, and it's not supposed to. But one day when it's past I want to remember taking every opportunity to "mel" my baby!
When I thought of being a mom, I never dreamed of THIS! ~Five heart melting smiles ~never getting tired of midnight feedings ~having all the answers ~not minding dirty faces ~enjoying watching the boys eat! ~falling in love with pigtails ~appreciating overalls ~appreciating a washing machine! ~wanting to do everything better ~falling in love a million times
