I'm Smitten

When Sam and I were trying to decide whether to have a fourth child, I just kept imagining a darling baby girl. I really really wanted Sammie to have a little sister and I had plans to dress them alike and even bought matching outfits for both of them. We decided to have another baby because I just knew there was another little girl for our family. Well, I got pregnant and found out I was having another boy.

I cried off and on for a week. Yeah, I know. I shouldn't even admit that publicly when every child is a gift and he was healthy, etc.

Fast forward until now. Buster is 9 months old and the absolute love of my life. This little koala bear that rides around on my hip and smiles at me all day long has saved me. I'm getting emotional as I type this because obviously, Someone Else knew I needed this little boy.

I just got his pictures taken over at Foto Fly. I did start crying when the girl showed them to me. I know. It was totally embarrassing. But I think they are perfect and really capture his adorable personality. Drum roll please:




I want this torquise velvet love seat (it is from Target!):





The money shot:


I love the rolls:


Who me?


Notice the dimple:

These really are the cutest ever. He is so much like Sammie in her tutu shots. I love all his fuzzy hair and that coy smile and all the rolls! Charlie was looking at these laughing saying "He's so cute!"

Denise said...

He is SO adorable!

Liz said...

That is just too, too much cuteness for one post. It's almost more than I can take. He is the yummiest creature ever. Too bad Macy and Buster are related.....I'd want to set them up in the future if that is what my grandkids could look like!

Jill said...

Who could resist such cuteness? He is painfully cute and these photos are darling. I'm so glad the Lord sent you exactly who you needed to help you survive this past year.

Oh my! I think my ovaries did a little leap just then. Buster is adorable! My husband had two girls when I married him and now we have two boys. I love having boys. (But I do understand why people want to have the alternative.) No judging from me ;) xx

Precious, precious, precious. This entire post is precious, including your tender feelings about having Buster in your life. Thank you for sharing!

Kimmie said...

rollie-pollie....LOVE him.

and i get completely it...brooklyn is my saving grace!!!

Sam said...

Within minutes of his birth, I proclaimed that he looked just like Sammie. I love that I was right.

Buster has grown on me in an exponential way. As the fourth kid, he was facing an uphill battle. My will to battle with infants has faded. And yet, at 9 months, I am wrapped around his finger.

He is cute, cuddly, has a wicked smile, and is starting to laugh. I am convinced he follows everything around him and is very bright. The perfect caboose.
