Just want to take a minute and think about how blessed we are to be given healthy beautiful babies!! Most of them, are around 8 months now and for me it has been the most amazing 8 months of my life! There are so many unfortunate women out there that cannot have babies, or at least have been trying for years and years, you all know someone I am sure. Its so unfortunate, and sad. So again, we are all so lucky!!! What does your baby do that makes your heart melt each and everyday? My daughter just started moving her head side to side everytime I sing to her! hahaha I can't help laugh everytime. She is perfect. :)

I so agree... I was actually classified as 'one of the unfortunate' and now, even with a hard pregnancy (being high risk) I have my perfect child. My age kinda sucks but just looking at him everyday reminds me how lucky I am.... I can still remember all those times I was sad, hurt and depressed (as well as jealous of others) because I was not able and not suppose to have a baby. My dr's messed up some medication with birth control and I an sooo happy they did... what makes my heart melt is in the morning when her wakes he will be jumping in his bed and when I walk in the room he smiles and laughs... he does the same thing when I get off work :)

Every night before I go to bed (after I get the baby to sleep) I thank God for making all my dreams and wishes come true.

My girls will speed crawl after me when i walk into the room. When i sit down they crawl up to me and stand by me, grabbing at my pants or jacket. They reach up and touch my face with their sweet little hands too. They were born on my 31st birthday and i can't imagine i will ever get a better birthday gift again. They are my last babies so it is bittersweet to watch them grow. In a way it is exciting to see them do new things and in a way i wish it would go slower because it seems to be just a blur to me.

Well ladies, it sounds like we definitely have quite the sweetest, little babies on our hands!! I loved all of your stories, and different little cutsey things your babies are learning to do!

Sheila ~ As I sat here and read your post, I couldn't help shed a couple tears. What a great, and truly miraculous story you have. Your daughter I might add, is absolutely gorgeous. What is her name? :)
My sister just announced at Thanksgiving (Canadian) that she is expecting, and going on 12 weeks this Saturday! She has been trying for 6 yrs. I can only imagine what that might feel like. How annoying first of all- to not be able to have any control. I remember how upset and angry I was whenever I saw the negative sign and I only tried for 5 months.

Well I am very happy for you and your family and I only hope the very best for all of you ladies. Cherish every moment with your little ones, as will I. They are the most important little beings in the world!!!! :) xx

Robyn I completely agree, I personally have gone through miscarriage after 8 years of trying... I underwent my first try at ICSI at the age of 39, only 1 of my 4 eggs actually fertilized, and I know I am the luckiest Mammy on the planet.... I have made lovely friends through an infertility forum and my heart breaks for all my lovely friends who have been unsuccessful - I thank my lucky stars and count my blessings every time I look at my beautiful daughter.... she is coming on leaps and bounds these last couple of weeks, She has begun clapping, and waves her arms in the air and botty dances as soon as she hears music.
The pain of yearning for a family for all these years just melts when I see those sparkling blue eyes and I get a toothy grin.
She has begun kissing, well I say kissing, she opens her mouth grabs onto my face and just lunges - tongue and all; it's very wet, and melts my heart every time she does it - sometimes I feel I could burst I love her soooo much... which makes the pain of my friends' childlessness very difficult to bear xx

I must admit i seemed to forget how lucky i was that my son came into my life until my best friend had her first baby yesterday, and all the emotion came flooding back to me! I haven't stopped cuddling my little boy all day now! I feel quite guilty, as i have just started back at work and have got into a routine of feeding him his breakfast, dropping him off at the babysitters, going to work, coming home and feeding him his dinner, so i seemed to have forgot how special and important he is just so i can get through the day!! I don't know if this sounds bad, but he truly is amazing and i love him with all my heart!!

Robyn... you are so right!!! I look at my little girl and I'm amazed everyday that she has come into my life. I love my husband and my whole family but I had no idea that I could love someone as much as I love her. Everything (including crying) makes my heart skip. Some of my favorite things is 1st thing in the morning when I go to get her out of bed and she just looks up at me with those big blue eyes and has the BIGGEST smile on her face. She has also just started semi waving which is super cute.

my lil man is so tickelish and he gets this high pitched giggle/ squeal whenever he is tickled, i love it...but am dreading when he learns just how tickelish i am!! lol
He also has just started to roll his eyes whenever i dance in front of him...i dont think he knows that hes doing it (or maybe he does!) but it cracks my husband up cos he thinks our lil man is thinking..."oh mum, not more dancing" its too funny!
I definantly agree with you that the past 8 months have been amazing...i never thought i had so much love inside me!
