Thanks says Sweetpea


Nana has given baby A her official nickname and it is Sweetpea. I just wanted to say thanks for all the kind wishes, Sweetpea is grand and tops the scales at 9 lbs, 1oz at 4 weeks. She is eating and sleeping like a trooper or like a third child who knows her place. She is the sweetest little bug and I am smitten.

I am still recovering, I know how exciting! My incision is about another 2-3 weeks away from being completely healed. I am sick of saying I am still sick so consider it done, I am on the mend and hopefully this will the last we all hear of it.

I wish I had the energy to say how my heart swells to near bursting every time I stroke her tiny head, or how I look up in startled amazement when I see my three girls lumped together on the sofa, but I can't. Because when I do I simply have no words. These gifts I have been given humble and astonish me every day.

Sweetpea is a cutie -- my boys didn't have that much hair until they were 18 months old.

So 3 more weeks and your back to your career as a bikini model? HAHAHAHA!

Take care of yourself!

I'm with SB, my kids were bald - BALD - until they were nearly two.

Sweetpea does have hair and it did not fall out! Both my older girls were born with some amount of baby hair that promptly fell out once we were home. Then they remained practically bald until 18 months or so.

Sweetpea though has kept her hair and so far no bald spot. Her hair is kind of fuzzy in that photo, it usually is right after her bath - then flattens out a bit a few hours after. The girls love to comb her hair, but I like it standing up.

As for my career as a bikini model, I really should have asked for that tummy tuck while I was there.
