BPS: Sugar

I love Sundays.  It’s Baby Picture day!

Today’s pics go aaaaall the way back to October 2004, when our family of three became a family of four.  Our second child was born at home (and for the record, it was a water birth and totally awesome!)

One BIG advantage of the home birth is that our older son was there whenever we wanted him to be.  He was not in the room when our precious Calf #2 was born, but he came in shortly after Baby and Mama were stabilized.


Just minutes old, and already adored by his big brother.

I can’t look at these pictures and not smile or get a tear in my eye.  Maybe I’m a bit biased, but my boys are so sweet!  My little boys are growing so fast.  They do not look like this any more!  The bigger boy was 2 years, 2 months old when he became a big brother.

These last two pics are the next day, after we’d had a chance to nap a bit (because it’s hard to sleep on the day of your child’s birth with all those endorphins running through your system!)


I forget why he wanted to pat the baby’s head, but he was patting his own head too.  He took great care of his brother at this age!

I wish I could say that the brotherly love and affection continued. . . let’s just say that now that they are closer to the same height, weight, and pestering ability, the little brother can fight back a little better.  😉


You can see part of a toy in this picture, it’s a butterfly in a ring.  The Bull had taken Calf #1 to the store that day to buy a toy for the new baby.

Oh, that was quite a sweet trip down memory lane!  I love doing the Baby Picture Sundays.  But I’m also really enjoying the idea of a break, Debi!  We’ll link up with you again in a couple weeks, and I hope your packing/moving goes swimmingly!
