breathless...

I am in awe of newborn babies......
the sweet smell of baby powder...
the pursed lips.....
the clenched fists.


my darling neighbors had this sweet baby girl last week...she is a mere 6 days old.
What is it about the birth of a new baby that makes our heart skip a beat?
{deep sigh}
but then i heard her little scream at midnight last night and as much as i love babies....
i was able to close my window and fall back asleep.....
{double sigh}

Baby Devin ....for your information.... has a plum colored room.....with mom & dad totally nixing my idea of naming her Plum....but i'll heal.....only because i get to babysit.


breathless...
sweetness...
have a lovely weekend.

Baby Devin is adorable! I think Plum is s perfect choice. Maybe you should reserve that for your next one! ;-)

Carmen said...

I love babies! Especially newborns. I know exactly the *feeling* you are talking about. *sigh* Congrats to your neighbors! I actually think Plum is a pretty cute name and I'm not much for naming kids after fruits. hehe

Congratulations to your neighbors on their special delivery! She is beautiful! Plum....Plum makes me think of Eve Plumb, aka, Jan Brady.

Enjoy your weekend and your newest little neighbor!

Nothing like a new baby. Plum would be an interesting name:) I think I like Devin better!

I keep having the pregnancy dreams. Even though I know it's not a possibility...they scare me a little. I'm way beyond the new baby and toddler stage finally:)

Hope you have a great weekend Kasey.

your photos make me want another baby....and we both know how much it would take to make me say that!!

Ah, they are seductive, aren't they? My brother and his wife had a new baby girl just this week, and one of my girlfriends from college had one about 3 weeks ago, and it makes me want a second baby SO MUCH. It makes me a little sad that my days of tiny onsies, and tiny diapers, and midnight feedings might be over for good. And then I realize that my days of diapers and midnight feedings could be over good!!

LuLu said...

ohhh i do love new borns {sigh} i'm at the stage where I love to hold, snuggle them, burp and even diaper them but hand them back after!
happy weekend,
LuLu

p.s. i still like to think of baby names... that habit is hard to break

Morgan said...

I can realte to this so much considering I have an 8 month old...except he is no longer my "precious little newborn"..he's my baby that is curious about everything BUT his mommy anymore. :(

curious mango said...

She is so beautiful. Blissful sighs...

B said...

She is adorable...sigh.

Recently I've been very broody; uncontrolable at times. Craning my neck to catch a glimpse of a passing pushchair, cooing at little bundles. Then last week, I had a scare; you know the kind? And suddenly it was all very possible that 3 might become 4... and suddenly I wasn't broody any more!

Scare over - phew!

Suzann @ The Olive Cottage said...

Oh I love me some tiny newborns. I could snuggle all day long. Thought I really wanted another, but realized that I just can't do it. So, I'll wait and in a few years I will most likely be a granny. But, my silly son better get married first. LOL
