10 Things I Miss About Having a Baby

I think about this a lot (why do I torture myself!?) and now that we are completely out of the baby stages, I'll tell you what I miss about having a baby in the house. Here are my top 10 reasons. I'm sure if I wanted, I could come up with more, but for the sake of keeping this short, I'll spare you. :)

Christian at 7 months
10. Always having a cuddle buddy to sleep with. (We co-sleep so I always get plenty of cuddles!)

9. Seeing all their "firsts".  First smiles, laugh, rolling over, etc...

8. Little hands and little feet.

7. That baby smell that every baby seems to have.

6. Those tiny, adorable outfits.

5. Being pregnant and knowing you are creating another human being. (This totally counts because there is a baby in there.)

4. Baby smiles. (They're the best, aren't they?!)

3. How peaceful they look when they sleep.

2. Breastfeeding. This was a close second. I personally loved breastfeeding. There's a certain bond that forms between mother and baby that there really aren't words for. I loved the fact that our baby was totally dependent on me for food. And those milky smiles are to die for! (I'll stop now and leave the rest of why I love it for another post.)

And the #1 thing I miss about having a baby is.... the impact that such a small little being has on people. It has brought Gabe and I closer together with each child. And there's just something about a baby that makes people smile, coo, and fall in love with them. It's hard to resist stopping to admire a baby!


  1. This post is so precious, friend! It's so easy to forget all these sweet little things when you're in the moment! I'm hosting a blog hop today called the Mommy-Brain Mixer, and I'd LOVE for you to come link up this post! It would be so fun to have you!

  2. what a sweet post, totally makes me want another one :)

  3. I know I already commented on this post, but I wanted to say thanks so much for linking up! I hope to see you again next week! :)

  4. Thanks for hosting Cassie! It's one of my first hops so I'm not sure if I got everything done and right but I'm sure I'll figure it out.


Thanks for reading and leaving a comment! I love hearing from you!
