Babysitting

Last night the kids and I had the pleasure of a bit of time with the lovely Miss Charlotte, the darling niece and cousin we were blessed with 10 months ago now.  My sweet sister-in-law is finishing up her masters degree and my brother had a band practice to attend.  In case I've never mentioned this before my brother is in DHBC with the hubs, it's a family affair:)


Boy it was hard to snap shots of this little gal, I guess I may have forgotten just how "on the go" a 10 month old baby is!  But seeing these big kids of mine interact with her is such a treat.  They are both so attentive and eager to help.  Molly fed her dinner and Corey played with every toy she had (not sure who that benefited more).
Of course as the night wore on and everyone needed some settling down my mama skills were still there.

My how they've grown, while I was busy reading books with the little one these two just settled in with their own books.  I have to admit it was sheer joy to have this darling little girl fall asleep on my shoulder.  It's been a while since I was there with my two, that heavy breathing and limp body that announced "it's safe to put me down now" melted my heart and made my ovaries ache just a little bit.  What a joy to have her in our lives.

  1. Y'all are welcome to come babysit here any day! I got that same ache holding a newborn the other day. Dangerous stuff those sweet babes. ;)
    P.S. I had Nature Girl in my head for a full day recently. Good song. :)

  2. What fun to have a little one around! I see that "Tails" is a favorite at your house as well as ours. :)
