Baby-palooza at Scrapbook Centrale!

As you know, cropping on Fridays nights at Scrapbook Centrale has brought some amazing people in my life, girls I consider close friends now. I can't imagine not having them in my life. Erin, Noémi, JJ... Love 'em!

Seven weeks ago, JJ gave birth to daughter Rhys, the cutest thing you have ever seen! She is such a quiet baby, JJ actually still comes to crop on Friday nights. Rhys will fuss when she's hungry and that's it. The rest of the time she sleeps. Amazing!

Four days ago, Erin gave birth to her second son, Parker. Well she came to the crop tonight with the little guy to show him to us! OMGosh, he is cute! I got to hold him, and smell him, and kiss him. Sigh, I didn't want to let him go! :) And when I saw him breastfeeding, I totally melted on the spot! To see the little mouth on the skin, to hear the little coos of contentment... Brought back amazing memories. That's what I miss most about the early days/months. The bond we create with our child through breastfeeding.

And for Christmas, Noémi is expecting her third little one! Yup, I'm telling you, it's baby-palooza in our little group! Sometimes I wish it would rub off on me....

...and then sometimes I don't! Like yesterday, when the kids were upstairs and I was on the first floor. Sean was "reading" a story out loud, like he does sometimes, and I thought it was sweet that he was reading a story to his sister. But then I realized Kira was being way too quiet. When I went upstairs, I saw that she had emptied half the litter box on the floor! She had seen me scoop the litter earlier and tried to do the same!

And today, when she was in the bathroom and I was in the living room with Sean. I figured the worst she could do was unroll the toilet paper. And then I heard : "Mommy wash hands!" I thought she had managed to reach the soap, but nooooo. She had taken my tube of lipstick and had drawn all over the floor! Man, I love that kid, but she's much more a handful than Sean ever was!

Okay, I think it's time I went to bed, so I will leave you with my pic of the day for the challenge at SC. I had to take a pic of myself for my bio on Scrap Schemes, so I used the timer option on my camera. At some point, Sean jumped in the picture. It was totally not planned, he just wanted to be in the pic with me. Well, this is what I got!!! I love it!
