I can honestly say that it's so much easier to accept the fact that I'm finished having babies since I finally have my peace child. The easy-going, sweet, tranquil nature of this baby makes me content to be done birthin' babies. Now I can focus on being a mama to the three that I have. His peaceful entrance into this world and the thus-far short lived PPD is a pleasant note upon which to end the childbearing years of my life. I'm also excited about taking the pregnancy weight off once and for all!
Drayken is now four weeks old and he's a little sweetie. And a cutie. And did I mention that he's a sweetie? I am so in love with him. He sleeps pretty well most nights. He has had a couple of days (at two weeks and four weeks) where all he did was nurse and poop but that was okay because the next day, he'd give me a break and sleep a whole lot! He loves to have his feet rubbed and he likes to take car rides.
His brother and sister love him... a little too much at times I'm afraid. They like to get on him. A lot. Donut has tried feeding him popcorn. They both love to get right in his face, even when he is nursing and they like to kiss him and bug him when he's sleeping in his bassinet! His brother calls him a sweet little angel and says that he is soooooo cute.
You may notice that he has a little cyst above his right eye. These are seemingly common in children (although his pediatrician had never seen it in children so young... it popped up and hour or so after he popped out). Regardless, we are taking him to Vanderbilt's Children's Hospital on April 28th. Please pray with us that it's cosmetic and that, if it must be removed, they are able to wait until he is significantly older.
