Busy With Baby Willis

We have been busy falling in love with our special baby boy. He is so cute, so sweet and most of the time he is pretty laid back. The only time he isn't is if I eat chocolate, beans or he just does not want to go to sleep. Other than that he is perfect. He even slept from midnight until 6:00 a.m. last night. He loves to look up at you and watch you and his little sisters just love him. We get a lot of requests to "hold the baby". They talk to him when he cries and mommy can't come right away, they play with him, sing to him and kiss his cheeks as much as they can. I have forgotten how time consuming this phase of babyhood is, but also how precious and wonderful it is as well. And I DO remember how quickly it is gone. Looking at my baby and then at my two girls I wonder when they were ever this small. And I get sad realizing how fast they have grown. But I also love watching them grow and be the people they are becoming and see them change.

He is so handsome!

Emily is such a good big sister.

Willis in his bouncy chair. He likes it sometimes, and other times it is where I have to put him to give my arms a rest and he hates it. He loves being held.

Big sister Lindsey loving her little brother. Lindsey has also done something amazing for everyone involved. She has decided finally that being potty trained isn't so bad and underwear is a good thing. Just suddenly she did it on her own and I am beyond grateful!

Okay Jessica, in the bottom 2 pictures, he REALLY DOES look like a Dowdle. Like Nathan and YOU and a lot of the other kids! It really is weird! But the other pictures, he's a perfect mix of Robert and you. He's SO cute!!!

The best thing about having older siblings is that they are so helpful! Kudos to Lindsey for training herself. Marina did that right before Chase was born. I remember being so relieved to only have to deal with one set of diapers!

You have a lovely set of children! They are beautiful!

Peace and Laughter,
