Boys vs. Girls


Here is what I have learned just in the last two weeks in some differences between a son and daughters:
1. Clothes-Boys clothes have the ability to be mixed and matched quite easily.
2. Diapers changes-MUCH more difficult with a boy. Charlie actually peed in his ear today-I kid you not! I was way too confident and left him open to the breeze. Don't worry, I put a tad bit of rubbing alcohol in his ear to dry it out.
3. Gas-He has proven to be better belcher and gas passer and seems happier for it. I'm wondering if this is an innate ability of all males.
4. Mommy love-I'm not sure if it is because he is THE last baby or because he is more of a Mommy baby but I've been fairly selfish with sharing this sweet little man. I have no doubt that one day I will be looking up at my precious son and wishing that he would curl up on my chest and sleep or wrap his hand around my finger being hopelessly dependent on his Mommy.

  1. That's so sweet! He is such a little angel, I just can't wait to hold him (if I can manage to pry him away from his mom, that is!). He peed in his ear? HA! That's one Alex never managed, although he hosed pretty much everything else at one time or another. I'm so happy for you guys and your newly expanded family.

Elizabeth's quotes during her illness

On Tamiful:
"This medicine tastes worse than mud!" When has she tasted mud???

On her fever:
"I'll never be able to go outside with this fever." Poor baby wanted to ride her bike.

"Will I be sick forever?"

On Jeff staying up with her in the middle of the night:
"Daddy, you need to get some sleep too." He was "sleeping" in the chair in the living room while she was on the couch.
