sweet sleeping child-O-mine: froggy bum

So lately... I've been wanting a baby.

I know, I know. I already have one. (A really gorgeous one at that.)

I think I've been looking at some of these too much:

Twelve days old seems like years ago.

My husband keeps saying we should have another baby so that we don't have to share. He can hold one while I hold the other. Sometimes we "fight" over who's turn it is to cuddle Levi.

Our love is hard to contain within the space of one little child.

Can you please just look at those sweet little lips and that cute little bum? {gasp}

I've been having some serious belly envy lately. I'm looking at these preggo mamas in all their big, round, belly glory... and I want one of those.

But who am I kidding? One is plenty enough for now. We'll give this child a brother or sister... when it's time.

For now, to appease myself... I'll just keep looking at these "old" photos.

Aren't they precious? Is my sweet sleeping froggy bum child not one of the most heavenly sights you've ever seen? Any newborn that smiles in his sleep... must be divine, I tell you.

Dear mommy-friends, how do you appease your belly envy and newborn envy? Please feel free to remind me that one baby is enough for now. Someone needs to keep me grounded in reality.

dreaming of a bigger belly,

He is absolutely adorable. Did you do the photos yourselves? I love newborn photos.

I remember thinking after Laney was born that it was going to be a LONG time before I considered another one.

I am starting to get the bug now too. I am waiting until Laney sleeps through the night before I do have another (assuming that happens before she turns 2-3).

Oooh my dear, I know how you feel!! I have had baby fever recently, too. One of my best friends is on her way to L&D as we speak and another one is 20 weeks pregnant. Yes, I'm feeling the envy :-)
Levi was such a perfect little newborn. Seriously!! I could just sit and stare at Bennett's newborn shots all day.

Oh dear, I'm not there yet... although the idea of giving Joss siblings sounds like heaven because I love having siblings.

1) I love sleeping babies. And not because that means they're not
mobile and not making noise. It's literally one of the cutest thing on the planet.

2) the thing that keeps baby fever to a minimum is when I take time to consider the logistics and work load. That usually straightens me out.

You know I have been having baby envy myself and we have two already. I was never one to want three and now I am thinking three it will be. I thought I was over it until last night when O was playing in our front yard with the neighbor and another neighbor walked by and asked me if Little B made three boys. It made me stop and think that this really could be me in a couple of years and I kind of like it. I am no help for baby envy

I don't have much advice because I'm sporting one of those bellies right now, but I am glad we waited almost 3 years between babes. You'll find that you'll become so absorbed in watching Levi's little personality grow that you might actually think, "Do we want another?" I did that with Isaac until two little pink lines appeared, and it just felt right.

But God has everything already worked out. When it's time for you to sport the belly again, you will :)

A big help with baby envy: snuggle every newborn you can get your hands on! (well, without feeling like a crazy baby lady :D) It also helps to cuddle puppies and kittens too!

I know exactly how you feel. Murphy Man is 8 months old and I am so ready to start trying again. My hubby is on board. We have been looking at it with our heads and not our hearts and have decided to try again this winter. YEAH! Don't you just love having cute, sweet, cuddly, babies!

Oh I have envy too and now even more so after seeing your gorgeous boy and his froggy bum! I think I'd like one of my friends or sisters to have another one, then I can get my baby fix :) In due time Mama...enjoy your baby boy!

Oh Adriel look at those adorable little baby feet! What a cute little froggie outfit! What a little love! Just precious! Aren't we all just so in love with our children. What an incredible feeling! have a good day my friend!

Awesome pictures! No wonder you are craving another baby!
I too am struggling with it, although my baby is 18 months now. I think that as he finally begins walking and looking more like a toddler to me, thats why I can't get my mind off babies!! I miss mine!!
But alas, I remind myself, with only one car, and a small one at that, we simply don't have the room at the moment (and we are stuck with a car that isn't that old but has damage bringing the value to less then we actually owe- so no trade ins! :( )

He is just precious. I went through that when my oldest was about 6 months old but we decided to wait until he was 2 to work on another. It was the hardest year and a half ever!

I thought my baby fever was cured, but then...I came here! I love these pics, and those FEET!! So adorable! :) Thanks for your support on my feature day in the nestwork!

I remember having baby envy pretty early on as well. In fact, while still in the hospital with #1 I said to my husband... let's do it again! I think it must have been all the wonderful post labor oxytocin flooding my system with gooshy-lovey mommy feelings!

But seriously, the thing that most determined our timing for #2 was literally the physical ability to have another baby. With a first baby who LOVED breastfeeding, my body wasn't ready until well into her toddlerhood. It's nice that god has given us certain limitations that slow us up sometimes. It has given us 3 whole years to enjoy #1.

LOVE those pics particularly the one of his bum! I can't help you with baby envy - I've got it bad. We tried years for KLV and the clock is ticking so if we don't get pregnant within the next year or two - there will be no baby #2. That said, I knew I wanted to wait at least 2 years between the two so I could enjoy her every selfish baby/toddler minute...good luck Adriel

Gorgeous! My 2 are almost exactly 2 yrs apart...4 days between their birthdays. It was hard being pregnant with my little boy was only 18 months and running after him drained me. Now though they play together, laugh together and are really good company for each other. My little girl cries for her brother when he isn't here. And I am desperate for another baby. Husband is more practical though. I need to convince him.

Oh those pictures are absolutely adorable!!! They grow up too fast! I wish life had a pause button so I could savor these moments!

He is heavenly...froggy bum, teeny tiny baby feet and all.

I wish I could help keep you grounded, but, I'm going through the same thing. With my first I was completely content until she was around 2 (and you'd think the attitude change of a 2 year old would do the opposite!). This time around, I look at my 6 (almost 7) month old and thin...just one much could it hurt? But, he is most likely our last baby, which is probably why I'm having such a hard time with letting go of each and every stage of his "babyhood".

What a cutie you have there. Stopping by from mama's little nestwork. Great blog! I'm your newest follower. :)

What a beautiful baby boy you have! I love those photos.

Yes, I've been feeling the urge, too. But I'd like to wait a little longer for a variety of reasons. In the meantime I'm living vicariously through pregnant friends and family.

Such a beauty!!

Want to feel better? I rec trying to make them more than 3 years apart so they fight less when they are older.

but babies are soooo cute. Maybe...

Oh gosh I want another one so bad!! Our problem is that we had Isis without maternity coverage. When I get a full time job (probably August 2011), I'll have maternity coverage. We will probably start trying again in August 2011. LOL

We would love to have 3 kids & we'd like to have them as soon as possible. As a matter of fact, we're next in line for twins on both my side & Lewis' side, so we're actually praying for twins next time around!!

Levi was and is absolutely adorable!!!!! I really hope I get to meet him in person one day!
