Flashback Friday

Like you didn't see this coming. :)
Today's flashback is when Braden was born, I still can't believe it has been a year. It really doesn't feel like it has been that long since they placed that tiny little baby with that big cone head on my chest. Will it always feel like this? Like you were just holding a little baby and all the sudden they are all grown up? I hope so. I love still having those moments so fresh in my mind!

Here's our very first family picture.

Just seconds after he was born.
I just couldn't believe how cute he was and I couldn't stop touching him!

Don't laugh, I do realize how horrible I look here but after all I did just give birth. However, I just love this picture because it just reminds me how instantly I was so madly in love with him. I am going to go out on a limb here and hope I'm not the only one that felt like this but I was really afraid about the whole second child thing. I was scared that I couldn't or wouldn't love him as much as Alexa or that it would just be different in some way. Boy was I surprised! I was so head over heels for this little boy it was just crazy! So there you have it, the love of a mother has no end. I can only imagine if we have another that I will love that baby just as much as the first two! :)

Here's Alexa meeting her "baby brudder" for the first time. She was fascinated by his little face and toes.

Me and my babies...I think I could have bursted with happiness!

First bath.

I am in love with this picture.
I think the expression on Matt's face says it all!

Going home.

Okay, now I really want another one! :)

Oh he was such a cute little old man baby for the first couple months. I only hope someday I have such a handsome son of my own.

It feels like that was just yesterday that Braden was born and Alexa that little...Great first year Brad-O!!

He & Me + 3 said...

I love those pictures. Oh they make me want another one too. So cute. You are such a beautiful family.

I think you look absolutly beautiful! I have the same fears about having a second child. I know that I want another one but I am scared about not loving him/her as much as Lauren or loving them more. YIKES! But since you brought it up I figured I would be honest!!

You look unfairly good for just having a baby. Seriously, did you cheat and put up second day pics?
You do have a beautiful family and I love how much your love for them comes through in what you write. I love that you share them with us.
