naomi paige is 3

The baby of the house is three-years-old today!  This is just amazing to me.  Wasn't it just yesterday on a cold, Sunday (early) morning that Naomi came into this world??
   We found out that we were going to have another baby when Henry and Marcail were just 4 or 5 months old.  I thought something was up when I started losing my milk after successfully breastfeeding for those few months.  I took a test and it was positive.  I was too naive to be nervous about having another baby so soon after the birth of our twins.  I.was.excited!  I was nervous, however, to tell our families and friends.  I knew some of them would find this news not so exciting.
   I had another fantastic pregnancy with Naomi.  The months went by slowly though.  I was glad for that since I really wanted Henry and Marcail to be walking before her birth.  Thankfully, they were!  When I look back on pictures from when she was just born I am amazed at how much Henry and Marcail were still babies themselves.  At the time they seemed so much older!
   Naomi was a very, very happy baby.  She was tempermental occasionally but overall she was extrememly pleasant.  Her name fits her since Naomi means "pleasant one".  She was a good smiler and happy to be held and loved up by anyone.  She was and has always been a daddy's girl.  James loves to call her "Sugar Bear".  She has even told me that she's daddy's Sugar Bear.
   We are so blessed to have Naomi in our family.  She is a silly, sweet little girl and we love her so much!
This is me pre-Naomi, probably a month before her birth.

Naomi the day we brought her home from the hospital.

Yes, how well I remember what a cuddle-bug Nay Nay was and still is, it sounds!! She made everyone feel so loved by her sweet, compassionate nature! Can't wait to experience that in person soon!
Happy Day, Nay Nay!! (oops,don't tell her it's really Friday already!)

Ok, I did not realize that your kids were so close together! WOW, twins, and then another so soon after! I bet you were really busy, but then maybe after having two at once, one was a little easier? That is wonderful that she has been so pleasant, she is darling!
