Happy babies do exist!

I can't believe that one lives in our house!
Refreshingly shocking.
Janey (rhymes with rainy) actually enjoys life here on earth.
She sleeps, eats and cuddles.

Halley cried, screamed, cried, screamed, cat napped for a couple of minutes and then repeated. Every day for 3 months.
Guinness record breaking sort of colic.

Lucy cried, puked, screamed, puked, screamed, puked, cat napped for one minute and then repeated. Every day for 6 months.
Guiness record breaking reflux.
She single handedly ruined a houseful of carpet.

It is a wonder we were even brave enough to have another one.

So today, as Halley was at school and Jason and Lucy were at Disneyland, Janey and I had nothing better to do than lie in bed reading magazines and napping.

No earplugs, no pacing furiously throughout the house, no rocking and shushing, no cleaning buckets and buckets of projectile vomit.

Just cozy peace and quiet.

I am in awe, and so very thankful.

  3. Seriously she is absolutely perfect. I think she & Asher may be a darn cute, easy going couple!!

  4. I think the third kid is destined to be mellow, with two big kids to compete with. Our third pretty much goes with the flow, mostly out of being forced to do so. She's also the one who guiltlessly gets into things she shouldn't simply cause everyone else is too busy not paying attention!

    Enjoy your quiet time, those photos make me miss teeny baby feet and that new baby smell!
