Always someone to hold you

 She is always held by someone.  From the moment she arrived, she has been in the arms of someone short of the time I require her to be left alone so she can swing a bit by herself.  They love to hold her.  She has many mothers that usually meet me at my door in the morning asking to hold her.  What amazes me is how they love to just sit and hold her especially Clairvaux and Zellie.  Our chiropractor asked who holds her the most and in unison they all said "Clairvaux."  John and I laughed one time because I was on the floor finishing up getting her changed and dressed and immediately four sets of arms went out to hold her.  I wish I could have gotten a picture of it.  Instant arms. 
What I wish I could tell someone is that the love multiplies.  It is not something unique to our family.  My friends say it also.  The smallest is welcomed with the utmost love and care.

Her #1 handler.  My sisters always laugh how amazing my girls are with babies and how they never tire in holding our babies and other peoples' babies.  I am the same way.  PLEASE!  Let me hold your baby.  We were at my sister's home for a visit with cousins and I walked inside to two of my girls sitting together each holding a baby instead of playing outside with cousins.  Isn't that precious!

  2. Yes, it is so true. Even my teenage boys come running when I open the door and our baby is over a year old. The newness has not worn off on them!

  3. I wanted to tell you that I absolutely love reading your blog. In every post, you lift up the vocation of motherhood to the place it deserves to be, a place that the world does not understand. Glad you are still posting! I am grateful for the things you have taught me through your blog. I am a relatively new reader (maybe you have already written about this), but I am curious how you handle discipline in your home. Not sure if you ever answer reader questions :) I have read a lot of "theory" but am interested in how it plays out in day to day life. My two boys are young, two and four months, so we are in the beginning stages. What things do you compromise on? What things are non negotiable? It is hard to know what to do sometimes, in a culture that is fighting against you. I am just a big fan, acting like a true groupie, asking myself "How can I be more like Lindsay?" :)

  4. There's just something amazing about holding a baby and I think the kids all realize it, too. My five and two year olds get very upset if they don't get to hold our baby at least once a day and the big kids like holding her, too.

  5. Such sweet moments you have captured here. When I brought our 5th child home almost two years ago, I was amazed at how much love my older children had for him. They still dote on him. We are due with our 6th in about 10 weeks, and I am so looking forward to watching my children fall in love with their new sister. I often think that one of the greatest gifts we can give our children is siblings.
