We’re four and a half months into baby number three. All that time and I still haven’t settled on a blog name for the little one. At first, I was certain it was going to be “m&m” but that hasn’t rolled off the tongue with me. Right now, I’m leaning towards Special K because there’s a K in the baby’s name and I find myself saying it to her from time to time. Swee’Pea has been calling the baby “May-May,” which is a nod to her real name but hasn’t really sunken in yet either.
Whatever we call her, I can’t tell you how much I love this little girl. As her personality emerges, it’s clear that she’s one happy baby. Of course she cries when she’s hungry or wet or when her very loud six-year-old brother startles her, but overall, she’s full of smiles and laughs. She loves her brother and sister and squeals in delight whenever they come give her attention. Of course, she lights up the room whenever she sees me for the first time (a move that certainly moves me to include her in my will).
Overall, this baby is a total joy. And, the best part? It’s only one frickin’ baby! Oh. My. God. For those of you who have only had your babies one at a time, you don’t know how easy you have it. Of course. She’s a girl. Easy won’t last.
