He'll always be my baby

Even though this little man is about to become a big brother, he will always be my baby. And, as you can see from this picture, sometimes he still wants to be!I started thinking about my first-born, about how I used to wonder if it would ever be possible to love another child as much as I love him... and I thought now would be a good time to reminisce on the lovable munchkin that was once this little tiny baby:
Two and a half weeks: About 6 weeks:A little over 2 months:About 3 months:About 5 months:6 months:
Eight months (Halloween '07):Nine months (still a cute little chunk!):Sometimes ready to fight:Sometimes nothing but sweetness:My big one year old:
Discovering the joys of eating:Discovering the playground:Goofing around:Learning to walk:
Learning to dance: Discovering Disney, 9 months ago today exactly... which would have made him almost 21 months old - and precisely one pregnancy away from being a big brother... which event we are patiently awaiting at this very moment: Just the other day I snapped this precious picture of Weston sleeping... so angelic, so baby-like. He had played and played and played, which made him all sweaty. So I plopped him in the bath, like I suppose anyone would do. But the poor guy was so tired that no sooner had I picked him up out of the bath and wrapped him in a towel than he fell fast asleep.
How I love my little guy! And how excited I am for him to discover all the many joys that yet await him in life. But, no matter how big he gets, or how much our life changes (like it is about to), there is no doubt in my mind that he will ALWAYS be my baby!

I love the trip down memory lane. What a cute baby and adorable little boy Weston is! And, yes, he will always be your baby. :)

I hope you are in labor so that you will have the baby on Elijah's birthday (he was born on the 14th, but not until almost 11 pm). So, anytime now would be good! ;)

I read something on a my sister's blog about her first born son. She wrote, "You made me a mother first." And so it is with Weston, he made you a mother first! That is a special place!

It was fun to see his pictures. He is a sweet little boy. Today would be a great day for his sister to join him

I'm sure he'll be a great brother to his new little sibling for the rest of their lives!

I used to wonder the same thing, if I could love another child as much as my first. It really is amazing how you capacity to love just grows! Your attention may be fragmented for a time, but your love never changes.
