Baby Love

Say what you want about little babies, but my guy is WONDERFUL! I held Brock today and could not believe how BIG he felt to me. He's such a little boy now all thick and beefy. Then I hold Briggs and he's all light and smushy and I know the time will go so fast when he's teensy. Eventually his head will get big and his baby fat will cover his skinny little legs and we won't be able to remember how dainty his arms were because they're covered by boy muscles. So, I am just really trying to enjoy lying on the couch next to him (because we both can fit) and carrying him around with one arm (because I can still support his neck and his butt at the same time) and that the one package of Newborn diapers I bought will be plenty (since his fanny will fit in sz. 1s by the time we need to buy new diapers). Briggs is eating a ton, staying awake for longer amounts of time, and I look forward to when he smiles in his sleep, and I know it will all change so fast. We went today for his circumcision and he's gained 9 oz. since last Wednesday. I'm telling y'all he's eating a ton. Here's some of my fave pictures from this week.

He DOES have eyes. I never see him with his eyes open. He's really filling out, isn't he? Good juice, he's getting!

I love the pic of you with the big grin holding him. He is such a tiny peanut! Cute, cute, cute!

I think he's getting cuter every day. I can't wait to hold the little peanut. We just got back from Disneyland, so I'll be calling you back soon!

He's so cute sarah. I couldn't believe how small he was though when i saw him yesterday! Katelyn seems like a giant! and my arm already wants to fall off while i'm carrying her in her carseat!

He's such a sweetie. You're right, they just change too fast. We saw Olivia today and she looks so big after just seven weeks.

This is the unrelated Barlow- I figured I better fess up- I've been lurking since you sent out the scrapfest email, but I couldn't just lurk anymore because that baby is just so cute- I'm really glad all went well and that he is doing so good. You did inspire me start me own blog so thank you for letting me lurk!

He is too cute! I especially love the picture of you smiling and holding him. You both look cute, plus it's great that you've got your laptop open to Blogger in the background! The baby cuteness overtook the picture, but I just couldn't help but notice that little orange icon!

Sarah.. I have to admit.. that baby is just so cute that I should probably avoid your blog for a little while! Maybe just until he's... ummm, 2 years old! That way we won't be tempted or anything!
Or Maybe we could just stop by and get a good sniff or a snuggle and that would hopefully be enough of a fix. Whadya say?
