Mr. Handsome

I recently started calling Benjamin “Mr. Handsome”.   : )DSC_0015He’s wearing Matthew’s old clothes here.DSC_0007Someone needs to wear his clothing… they’ve been sitting in a box for nearly 7 years! DSC_0002They look pretty cute on you Mr. Handsome! DSC_0001I am going to miss having a baby around. I am going to miss you getting bigger. It’s always my heartache. DSC_0077I think it’s going to be a long time until there’s a baby in the family again. DSC_0057 DSC_0056Hmmm…. Someone has been gaining weight! DSC_0055Though this picture is a couple of weeks old, you weighed in at fourteen pounds today. That’s about 6 pounds in 6 weeks! I think we’ll call you  Chowhound. : )DSC_0053 DSC_0048I love how your little lower lip tucks under. You don’t have any teeth there to keep your lip from tucking back all cute. DSC_0080It’s sad, I know I won’t hardly remember you as a baby. I have a hard time remembering my children as babies. DSC_0042You are so precious to me. I always tear up with new babies as I think about babies in the world being hurt.  : (  We live in a sad world. DSC_0017DSC_0014Your brother and sisters love you too. They brought toys over for you to look at when you wake up from your snooze.

  1. My he has filled out! Those cheeks are so sweet! I know what you mean. Every baby I have, I try to cherish each moment, as I dont know if this will be my last baby in our home or not. I have really tried hard to enjoy Kinsley and Anna-Kate. Pure contentment as I rock them. The only things that fills the crick of my neck, is a new baby to rock. It ached for more babies for years and God was gracious and blessed us again. God is so good. Blessings!

  2. What a doll! I had NO baby boy clothes!! When Isaiah was born. My youngest boy (Gabriel) was 9 then and I had tossed/donated all boy clothes because we had 3 baby girls-LOL! (Lysa, Faith, Kitty)
    (((((((HUGS))))))) Sweet Benjamin!

  3. Hello, I googled about my 11 week old only weighing 8lbs. I came across your blog. Little baby Daniel is my fourth child. We have hired 2 lactation consultants and are on our second pediatrician. I have breastfed all my other babies. They have all been tiny. Just not as tiny as Daniel. The last doctor wants me to stop breastfeeding all together. I am devetasted. I want to cry every time I give him formula. I don’t want to stop nursing him. When I read your posts and see how healthy your baby looks I am encouraged to do the same. Thank you.

    • Don’t stop nursing him! Nurse him first and then give him a bottle of formula. Our Benjamin is now 6 months old and I only give him 2 bottles a day now. I think my milk increased a couple months ago or so. I could probably get away with not giving him any bottles but we home school so it’s better for me to stay where we are at. Feel free to give me a call if you want to talk! Hadassah 509-476-2073
