  •   lorilynsanity No one ever told me after you have a baby what a production going to the bathroom becomes those first couple weeks. Or that the afterbirth makes it seem like your lady land is murdering someone every couple hours. 45min

bowerpowerblog Weston asked "baby's eyes blue?" And Will proudly announced "No Broder, Baby has brown eyes like me!" This was one of those moments where I knew God orchestrated the most perfect addition to our family. For years Will has asked to go to the doctor so they could paint his eyes blue...to be like Daddy and his brothers...and now he is so proud that he has "sparkly brown" eyes just like Max. High five God! #mybrowneyedboys 15h
  •   santanamama That's so heart warming! So glad for your little Will 12h
  •   stefsays I have one hazel, one blue, and one dark brown (basically black) and their daddy has green. Mine are blue. We are so weird. 11h
  •   tliebstein As if the picture wasn't delicious enough, you had to add in the beautiful story too, it is all just too sweet! Love it!., 11h
  •   daltemose I love that so much for Will -- I have brown, hubs has blue - green and both boys have brown. Oldests are same as me - dark, youngest are a lighter brown...they r both just gorgeous "sparkly brown eyed boys" ..I finally see the beauty of brown eyes!!! 11h
  •   daltemose So glad Will can appreciate them now! 10h
  •   scullypa My oldest has the most beautiful blue eyes. Only one in family, so he told me he wanted brown eyes for the longest time. How strange that is to me, to wish away blue eyes! Se 5h
  •   katieaburley My oldest has blonde hair. Two sisters with brown hair... Finally littlest has blonde hair too, and big sis is THRILLED. 4h
  •   bnsnsons I feel Will's pain! I grew up with all blue-eyed siblings and parents. My first two babies also had blue eyes. Then I had my brown-eyed girl. . Funny how brown eyes are now absolutely gorgeous to me. 3h

bowerpowerblog Working on newborn photos of my little guy. I'm so out of practice that it's pathetic. But my mom told me that by the time you get to kid no. 4 if you have ANY pictures then you are doing ok #fourthkidproblems 2d

  •   winderandmain Lol I'm finding it's the opposite for me... All of them have a ton of photos but I got my smart phone soon before I got pregnant with Evan and because of my phone I probably have about a million more of him then the others!! 2d
  •   campdallas My husband is 7 of 8. There are like, two pictures of him as a baby, and one has four siblings bouncing off the walls around him in the photo. Ha, love that crazy big family I married into! 2d

bowerpowerblog We had a "cookie picnic" on the deck....which according to Will means that we eat as many cookies as we want while sitting on the deck. Also he is in charge of distribution. That's the legal definition of cookie picnic. Max only had milk #denied 3d

bowerpowerblog I am so thankful for LJ. He is still such a baby baby and he has handled the transition to big brother like a champ. And thank goodness for baby wearing because holding a newborn and a 15 mth old is tricky! #sollybaby 3d

  •   heathbird You should do a post about your transitions. I'm pg with #3, & already have 2 boys. My youngest will only be a little over 2 when the new addition arrives & he's my Momma's boy. I'm a little worried about how he'll do with a new baby hogging all my attention. 😬 and guessing my @sollybabywrap will be my only chance at keeping up with him while keeping tabs on the baby. 2d

bowerpowerblog I had a real solid cry going on with my mom and then Max peed all over my bed...totally made my mood better because that meant his first bath!!! Followed promptly by his second bath #takecover 6d
  •   gklbt Hang in there Katie, you're an amazing mummy and you know from experience it gets easier!! Big hugs x 5d
  •   ramblingsofgeo @bowerpowerblog your a trooper! I love your honest photos. In my eyes your basically superwoman... 4 boys... wow! You go girrrrrllll! #supermom 5d
  •   ruskintl Hang in there, and if it gets really bad ask your OB/GYN for a progesterone shot. I had terrible postpartum anxiety/depression with my last and the shot gave me instant and lasting relief. Let everyone take good care of you! 5d
  •   irule0324 You're definitely supermom!! 5d
  •   molliemoeck I just had my first baby (a boy ️) 2.5 weeks ago and have had some pretty rough baby blues times since then- accompanied by sheer exhaustion, headaches and weeping on my poor husband. Thank you for being so honest about your experiences. It makes first time mommas like me feel so much better about what we are going through- that we're not alone. 5d

bowerpowerblog The reality of post partum life hit last night. Will complained of a headache earlier in the evening and ended up vomiting from the pain at 2am. I have two clogged milk ducts...one in each armpit which makes it really fun...I have my first hormonal migraine and the baby blues are coming in hard. I love motherhood and being surrounded by my messy little boy blessings but the first week of post partum is no joke. Will is doing fine this morning and snapped this photo...I was crying and he insisted I say "cheese"...which of course makes me smile. All that to say...life isn't always baby soft. And mamas out there...I salute you. #istillwantallthebabies 6d
  •   sorrycharlie625 Thanks @momfield ! I will follow! 4d
  •   loveandbabies @ourstory36 Me too!! I always tell people when they ask how I do it: "I live in 3-hour increments." That and lots and lots of caffeine LOL because some days it's more about surviving than anything else. 4d
  •   cavegurl Saluting right back at ya momma! He & his momma are beautiful @bowerpowerblog ! 4d
  •   mafielder @bowerpowerblog I'm long time blog follower..first off I don't know how to do it, I have days where I can't handle my two boys! Secondly, my friend told me about Plexus...and it.has.changed.my.life! My anxiety and depression are gone, and I have energy to keep up with my wild boys. Plus it's safe for nursing Mommas...thank you for always keeping it real, and letting us blog readers feel like part of the family. Congrats to you and your sweet little family! 3d
  •   lmhogan Love you for this. I had our second 11 days ago and was also hit by the baby blues. Oof. It's so rough. And so unfair that we want and yearn so hard for these babies and then can't just stay in blissdom for ever. I'm here to say it gets better. I'm finally coming out of it and the joy is back. Sending extra good vibes your way that it gets better quick. Also, I started some supplements if you want that info. I'm not sure if it was them or the fog just deciding to lift but I'll take it. 3d
  •   christaje Oh mamma thanks for being real, praying for you! 3d
  •   alicia_jane Love u for this!!! 2d
  •   kortneylynn44 Thank you for your honesty. Just had our baby girl 6 weeks ago and the first two weeks were tough. No one had communicated just how hard the transition to motherhood would be. We're doing good now but those two weeks made me question everything I was doing. 1h
