I suppose every "last kid" complains that they got the bottom of the barrel: fewer pictures taken of them, no "firsts" documented, hand-me-downs galore, blah blah blah (said the doted-on and spoiled first-born).
I don't want Chloe to feel that way, so I'm going to do my best to make her feel just as special as the others. But I'm failing already.
First case in point: Chloe's first bath.
The good news: We took pictures of her first bath!
The bad news: She got her first bath just three days ago. She was almost a month old. Poor neglected child.
The other bad news: I hadn't showered the day we decided to document her first bath. Or the day before. Quite possibly not the day before that either. Poor Chloe. The other kids had a cleaner mother.
Second case in point: Chloe turned a month old yesterday!
The good news: I've taken a lot of pictures of her first month of life.
The bad news: I didn't get a picture of her on her one-month birthday like I did with all the others.
The good news: I got a picture of her on her one-month-and-one-day birthday! My spin on this? I wasn't intentional about taking pictures of the others when they were one-month-and-one-day old. See? Lucky you, Chloe.
Happy one-month-and-one-day birthday, sweet Chloe. I'm so glad you're part of our family. You might be the last, but you're definitely not the least! (Well, weighing in at 8 lbs. 14 oz., maybe you are the least in some ways!)
