Our family is now complete with the birth of our third child (I am blessed with an amazing son and two awesome daughters) who is now 4.5 months old. It is so exciting when she reaches her milestones or discovers/learns something new, yet at the same time it is somewhat bittersweet as this is the last time I will get to hold a newborn/baby (friends and families babies aside), and the last time I will get to see a first smile, a first giggle, a first time to roll over. It has really brought home to me to cherish every moment (ok, maybe not so much the tantrums, poo-splosions and creative “redecorating” of the house!) with my children, because they grow up so quickly. I swear my youngest little darling must be raiding the fridge at night because she is catching up very quickly to her older siblings! I am so proud to share their lives, and watch them grow and discover new things, I do sometimes miss having a tiny newborn

  • I am in a similar situation. I have 5 children. My youngest is almost 1 year old. I had a hysterectomy after having her because I thought 5 was enough but they just grow up way too fast …..


  • I was exactly like you and because I knew my 3rd was going to be my last I made an extra special effort to make sure that I made the most of his hugs, smiles and milestones.


  • Children can be such a blessing! :)


  • It goes so quick it’s crazy, soon enough I’ll be an old lady and my kids will have their own families :(


  • I can’t believe my little boy is almost 9 and up to my shoulders. Where did the time go?


  • Oh I know. I kinda regret that I’ll never have another little one either.
