Newborn Baby and Happiness

This past Thursday one of my best friends gave birth to her beautiful baby girl. I went to visit her the next day after work and I fell in love with Layla.

I got to hang out with Heather and I just got to hold baby Layla. I was a little nervous at first. For some reason I get all weird holding other newborn babies but after I get comfortable I will hold them forever. 

Holding a newborn made me want another baby SO bad. I think any mom would say that. Holding Layla was just so peaceful compared to my "baby" now. Sophia will not let me hold her for more than 5 minutes. I miss the newborn stage.

After spending time with Heather and Layla I feel like with my next child I will be calmer and better prepared. I guess things would be a little easier the second time around. Am I crazy for wanting another baby already? I mean Soph will be two in just 2 months....

Ok. No more crazy talk.

Lets just focus on Sophia and how watching her outside running and laughing brings so much happiness to me.

Earlier this day Sophia and I went on a dinner date, just the two of us. It was perfect. I was a little nervous at first going to eat by myself with a toddler but she was so good. 

We went to Dairy Queen and shared a chicken basket and we had ice cream with sprinkles for dessert. Sophia behaved so good and just sat and ate with me. We talked, played and ate all our food. Sophia actually stole the ice cream and ate it all. She looked at the women behind us and said "I'm done" to them. We all just laughed.

It was such a relaxing and perfect dinner date.

We spent that evening in our backyard. Where we are most of the time. That's why most of my pictures are in the same spot but this little one is the happiest in our backyard. I am very thankful to have this yard that we all can enjoy. All these pictures make me so happy. 

Ah, these pictures just make this newborn wanting momma so happy. 


  1. I had my third child less than a month ago and there is right at 2 years difference berween her and her brother! It's very hard with a newborn and toddler. I wouldn't take anything for them but it's definitely not easy.

    LOVE Sophia's pics. She's so precious!

  2. You've got baby fever girl! I can relate. It wasn't too long ago that I was around a newborn myself and fell madly in love! It just brings back so many great memories of when my daughter was that little. My little one is turning two in just a short week so I'm in the same boat. As much as she is a love bug she will not stay still for more than 10 seconds at a time. It makes it a little difficult when mommy just wants to hold her forever :o)

  3. Found you through the GFC Hop! Your daughter is little girl is 10 months and her name is also Sofia :)

    My sister in law just had her third baby and every time I see him I get that baby fever feeling too!
