No More Babies in This House

The first time that I saw that double line show up telling me I was going to have my first little baby, I was a little surprised, even though we'd been trying. I didn't think it would happen that quickly.


The second time I saw that double line, I wasn't shocked at all. After all, the day before, I had decided that I wanted a huge glass of milk and chugged it down. I never want milk unless I'm pregnant. So, I barely glanced at the stick: I knew what it would say.


But, with my third, I looked at the double line and thought This thing must be broken. And so I did another test. Hmmm, this pack must be defective.


And so I bought a different brand and tried again the next morning. Okay, I guess I'm really pregnant.


We weren't trying at the time. We also weren't doing anything to prevent a pregnancy, so we weren't not trying either. Three or four kids was always our plan.


But, I had also just returned to work (part-time) for the first time in almost three years. Which is how I justify not realizing that I'd actually missed two periods by the time that I took a pregnancy test. I tried to insist that I'd just missed one- which led my OB to think that perhaps I was carrying twins since I was measuring big.


When we found out Cub was only one baby, just due about a month or so sooner than I thought, I was relieved. I had been panicking at the thought of having four children under the age of four. Three under four was scary enough.


Cub's birth was the easiest of the three. Since my other two had been born very quickly and we were living 45+ minutes away from the hospital, I was induced with him and given a blessed epidural, unlike my first which was natural and my second where there was enough time to give me a little something, but, nothing like the epidural, which allowed me to be a lot calmer than with my other two.


It was two years ago today that my little Cub was born. Why do I call him Cub? Because of all that hair! He looked just like a baby bear.  Look at my cute little newborn.

And months passed quickly....

And in a blink of an eye, he was one:

And I vowed not to blink any more.

But, somehow, my baby is now 2.


If you ask him how old he is, he tells you THREE. I try to correct him and tell him TWO, but he insists that he is three already.


And with that, I realized that I don't have any more babies in my house. That they are all growing up so quickly. The baby gear and clothes are slowly all making their way out the door.


There will be no more pregnancy tests with double lines in this house, no more anticipation of a new baby's arrival. No more first smile, first time rolling over, first time sitting up, first crawl, first spitting out of baby food, first step, first sleeping through the night, first word.


Now, it's lasts. Last firsts. The last time that I get to see one of my babies hit a milestone for the first time.


I think I understand why the baby of the family is forever treated like, well, a baby.


So, my dear Cub, I know you want to grow up quickly and be able to do all that your big brothers can do, but please forgive Mommy for wanting to keep you as a baby for a little while longer.


Because you are my last baby. Happy 2nd Birthday, Cub!

Okay, first of all, he is seriously gorgeous!!! I love all of his hair and I'm sure that my Hailey would be jealous!

Second of all, I'm so envious of your baby gear leaving the house...for that, you are very very lucky.

Third, maybe this is why I had twins...we hit all milestones together and then they're gone...no one else has to hit them. We enjoy each of them to their fullest b/c we know that this is it.

Happy Birthday Cub!!! Let your Mommy hold you like a little baby for a just a minute, okay?

Happy Birthday to that beautiful little boy!! It does go SO fast! No more pink lines for me either I've recently decided. It's a little sad, but then again we have so much fun together doing things as a family now that he's older, so I try and remember that whenever I think about starting over!

Awww...sad Momma. I went through all of those feelings with Kamden. Then we got our surprise Khylee a few months ago. Babies really do bring so much joy into the house. But, trust me, it's really nice when they are all self sufficient too!

Kenna had hair like that when she was a baby. She looked like she came out with a wig on she had so much hair.

Our youngest is two now and it's killing me. You would think I would be happy about it, but I'm not. Being a mommy is more about who you are than what you do. I have been pregnant or nursing for the past 15 years and now I'm done. No more nursing, no more babies, no more diapers. OK, maybe I'm happy about the diapers thing.

Happy birthday little Cub! You are adorable! And mom, while you may want him to stay little a while longer, pretty soon you will start to enjoy the freedom. You will start to slather love on other people's babies and it'll be awesome (specially cause you can give em back when they poop or puke!)

Oh my. That is a VERY cute Cub. My goodness. There is just something special about the third (and final) one, isn't there? Mine is 14 months and I'm glad he's still a baby (that still counts as a baby, right? RIGHT?!?!). Truth be told, I so know I'm done. Yes, I miss some of the newborn/infant stuff, but not being pregnant, not giving birth, not the sleepless nights, not trying to lose the weight, not being able to take a shower...the list goes on!

But I still call him my baby. And my baby forever he'll be :)

My last baby is nine, and I'd probably put a diaper on her and give her a bottle if she'd let me.
Happy Birthday to Cub!

Scooby is my last baby too, so I totally understand. I'm glad that he really isn't in too much of a rush.

FOr sure for sure for SURE he's your last?? He is TO DIE for! I can appreciate the 3 boy thing, girlfriend. But you said you always thought "3 OR 4"? Maybe a girl? Hmmm (may be overstepping boundaries and be putting my foot where it doesn't belong... heck, you could be going through something traumatic that you can't have anymore children, but want them... and I'm pouring salt in your wound. If so... SOO SORRY. I'm inappropriate at times. Ugh). I just want more friends in my boat (how selfish of me!).

Cubs' eyelashes.. his eyes.. his hair. LOVE IT! Love them!

This made me cry. For some many reasons. First, it is beautifully written. But also, I am struggling with a few things. The big big big reason that we will not have a third is the damn economy. I can NOT fit one into this house. We only have two bedrooms as it is, and the kid's is small small small. Secondly, I am just not sure. Which I have never been. I just wish I didn't have so many "last first" regrets and sadness.
