Poor 3rd babies...Raya's life was pretty much documented every hour, Kallen was monthly (kinda) and Zayne hasn't even had 1 post! What the heck. So here I am, diving in! And hoping to record as much as I can about this new guy :)
He's PERFECT. Need I say more? He's gorgeous, he's sweet, he's cuddly. He's healthy and happy and I just feel like the luckiest girl. He was born November 13th, 2012 at 11:58 in the morn. Weighing 7lbs, 8oz, 19in. I'll post the "Birth Story" sometime. But in a nutshell he was overdue and I was induced at about 7:30 on the 13th and had him about 4.5 hours later. It was a pretty uneventful labor and delivery. Which is always great! I had a pretty nice recovery and was home by 2pm the next day. I'm a baby making machine, its true ;)
He will be 2 months old tomorrow. He first smiled at me on my 30th birthday: Dec 26th. That was a pretty amazing birthday present! I think he probably planned that. He was 7 weeks old. Can you believe that?! He definitely kept me waiting. And it was sure worth it. Now he's a smiley baby and its THE BEST. Did I say he's gorgeous? Cause he is. And the smiling just Melts.My.Heart. He's also started Cooing alot. It just makes me smile right back. Its absolutely impossible to be in a bad mood when you have a snuggly, cooing, handsome baby to hang out with.
He's mostly pretty calm. He's a great eater. In 0-3month clothes and size 1 diapers. His big brother was a tank of a baby, so with Zayne I'm actually getting good use out of all the 0-3month clothes Kallen out grew the week he was born ;) He still sleeps a lot of the day (thankfully) He's very alert when he's awake and watches whomever is in the room. He will watch Raya or Kallen walk around the living room from toy to toy. He's VERY patient with his brother and sister. And by that I mean he's totally cool with them smothering him and always all up in his grill!
Raya and Kallen absolutely adore him. Kallen has stepped into the Big Brother role like a pro and Raya is just as good, if not better, this 2nd time around. She's actually really helpful for the most part! Shes such a sweet big sister and Kallen is such a loving big brother. They've all adjusted extremely well to each other and I can't picture my life without all 3 of them. Just like that. I have 3 kids and I can't imagine it any other way.
Zayne is a very sweet little boy. He loves to sleep on my chest. If he's even a slight bit tired I can put him on my chest and he falls asleep. He sleeps really well through the night, maybe wakes up 1-2times to eat, but he sleeps with me so neither of us really wake up more than a minute or so. I'm really well rested, usually getting a solid 7-8 hours of sleep a night. I even manage to get a nap in if I really need it! All my kids have been pretty good sleepers, luckily! So that's been a blessing.
I'm loving having 3 kids. I like the dynamic, I like the new sweet being that's in our home, I like watching Kallen as a big brother, I like that I have "Boys," I like that Raya's a little bit older and really gets whats going on and enjoys helping, I like seeing the differences and similarities between the 3 of them.... It was something I never imagined and would've told you I didn't want and thankfully I wasn't the one planning my life;)
You are amazing. Absolute perfection and I am beyond lucky that I get to be your Mom. I've only known you for 8 weeks and I'm already head over heels. You are pure sweetness. I'm so excited to watch you grow (just do it slowly ;) I will always be your biggest Fan baby boy!
I love you!!!
