Better late than never

Poor Chloe.

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!)


  1. She is so cute...I think Liam was almost a month old when he got his first bath. I am also embarrassed to admit that I haven't showered in 3 days my goal is to get one in before bed, unless I'm too tired...I think you look great:)

  2. Just remember: she will never know it was one month and one day unless you tell her. Same with the baths-yours and hers. ;) Just saying...YOU ARE DOING GREAT I AM SURE!!

  3. Oh Ang! She's beautiful! I love all the pictures! And did you crochet that blanket? Lovely. Miss you friend!
