Hi everyone,

I'm so embarrassed that it's taken me this long to share pics of my littlest guy. He's so smiley and precious, I can hardly stand it! Total mama's boy. He's good-natured, sweet, and laid back. I never thought I'd say that about one of my kiddos, LOL! Still not the best of sleepers, most (if not all) nights, he ends up in our bed for part of the night, preferring to snuggle with us than sleep in his crib. Ah well. We've done tons of construction on our house, and his bedroom isn't entirely complete anyway, so this sleeping arrangement has worked out OK. But, once his bedroom's done and he's in there, I'm afraid we'll need to work on getting him to stay in his own crib. We'll see how it goes.

Big brothers have been coping OK. My 3-y.o. has had the hardest adjustment. He's really acting out and demanding more attention, which is quite impossible for me given the baby and a special-needs 9 y.o. Don't get me wrong, he gets TONS of attention, but he wants more. I've enrolled him in karate in hopes that he can meet some friends, gain self-control and confidence, PLUS discipline. We're trying in vain to potty train. SIGH. I'd really like to enroll him in preschool a couple of times/week this fall, but I'm finding that he'll need to be potty trained first. It's such a battle.

Anyway, hope you enjoy the pics. I'll remove them in a couple of days.

Hugs and GL to all my high FSH friends!

Doing a drive by here and I'm soooo happy to see this update from one of the "old crew"!!

What an adorable boy you have! The tub photo is precious! His expression is saying "I'm here, world! whaddya gonna do about it?!"

I'm sure it's a juggling act with 3 boys to look after! I hope the sleep angels come visit you soon! In the meantime, who are we kidding...isn't it just delicious seeing that cuddle bunny snuggled next to you?!

Best to you!!

I'm partial to bald babies, having had two of them myself. He's adorable! Glad he's a laid back little guy. I hope you find the balance with your three year old. We're there too. She can be sweet and wonderful but also an epic handful. My hat's off to you for being able to handle three.

Love those pics and glad everyone is good. I think my 2yr old will have a tough time, probably just an age thing. She is already a handful, and very competetive with the 9 yr old so I can't even imagine a new baby. Good luck with the sleeping and potty stuff, I think boys are a lot tougher than girls.
