The Cutest, Sweetest Baby in the Whole Wide World

OK, I know a majority of the folks that read this blog are parents... so please don't take this the wrong way... but this baby is the cutest, sweetest baby in the whole wide world! :-) (I know, I know...Mommy bias!)

I had to post some pictures because, well, he is just so darned sweet! (that and the threats of bodily harm offered up by some very, um, dedicated readers. :-)

I know this will change later, but I was actually happy to have ZERO hours sleep last night. There may have been a dozing moment or two, but I now know the true meaning of "sleeping with one eye open!" I expected to stare at him all night long and, well, I did just that. Every whimper, every little grunt or cry, my eyes would fling open and I'd reach over and rub his tummy or tell him how much I love him. Zero hours sleep was something I had been waiting for.

As for J., he's doing really well... a bit gassy at times... but he's a wonderfully content baby. He especially loves lying on our stomachs and, yes, it has afforded me plenty of neck sugar for the takin'!

Without further adieu............


Welcome home, J.!

Katie, I am loving your blog! What a WONDERFUL Christmas for you!!

I am an adoptee so this gets me very warm and fuzzy. Therefore I can state assuredly that, with the exception of my own kids of course, adopted kids are the BESTEST!! And so are their parents!

Blessings to you all!

How wonderful!!!

I've been keeping up with everything on your blog, but not leaving comments. Sorry about that! Please know that I've been praying for you, though, and so eager for this day to be here for you!

My family keeps wondering what I'm ohhhing and ahhhing at on the computer - it's just your sweet little boy! WHAT A DARLING!

Congratulations! So much happiness and love and excitement. It just makes a heart full. :-)

Much love to all (including the new big brother!),

Oh. My. Goodness! Is this just the Best Christmas Ever, or what?

I am oh, so happy for you guys!

Missy said...

He is so snuggly wuggly. I can't believe my baby was that tiny just 8 months ago! Savor it...it goes way too fast!!

BTW whenever I have brought a new baby home, the siblings have complete meltdowns over every teeny tiny thing for about a month, and then they get back to normal. Just in case Daniel is acting like an utter spaz whiney weirdo. It'll pass.

Melissa said...

So sweet and precious! I am really really thankful at how God answered all the bajillions of prayers about your family, and adding this little boy to it. This hasn't been an easy one, but it's a wonderful story to tell.
Blessings!
