My Name Is Snickerdoodle: Who knew...

Who knew...

that a baby this sweetly adorable could

  • double your loads of laundry
  • keep you up at all hours of the night
  • make you cringe whenever you hear him cry (in the middle of the night)
  • make you second guess having a third (see above two notes)
  • melt your heart whenever he does cry because you are so grateful that you have a sweet baby to hold in your arms
  • bring out the greatness in his big brother (I love that Liam uses a baby voice when talking to Owen)
  • help you remember where you came from and why you are here
  • make you fall in love with your husband all over again (seriously, who would have thought that Ian had this much patience...mostly with me!)
  • be the best smelling person on the face of the earth
  • melt your heart again when he looks at you and gives you a little grin (non-gas related!)
  • remind you every day that Heavenly Father loves you

  2. Oh girl. I questioned having a third many many times!! I think back to those first couple months with #2 and it is like I wasn't even me. It was so hard for me!! But it gets so much better. You will definitely want a third! You're such a good mommy, you should have a whole slew of kids! ;)
