Fresh

I forgot just how good newborns smell. When Chapel arrived I just wanted to breathe her in, ya know? I just could not get enough. I'm going to miss that.

She has now entered the, "Wanna see what I just ate? Here's 37 minutes worth of nursing time down your shirt and over your shoulder, just in case you wondered how much milk I am getting" phase. It's lovely.

[Fresh out of the bath-4 weeks]

Ahhh, but she is lovely. Thank heavens for Baby Magic lotion. It's different than the newborn smell. But still yummy. And way better than curdled rotten milk.

And because I can't resist...

Oh Destinee.....that picture is so BEAUTIFUL!!!! I was just telling one of the beehives in YWs yesterday that I even kinda like the smell of Hailey's spit up. She looked at me like I was insane...maybe I am. :)

Thanks, guys! Melissa, I don't think the clear-ish regular spit up is so bad! More the curdled chunky kind that stinks. Or worse than that is the stuff that disappears under one of her rolls only to be discovered what appears to be days later. Bleh...
