Why We Keep Having Babies

Since the birth of baby #9 is fast approaching, I can't think of much else. I was looking through our boys' photo albums and found these cute shots of them as newborns.

Absolutely! I looooove the way teeny babies sleep with arms and legs splayed. We call it "two flaps up with frog legs."

Ooohhhh, as if I wasn't already baby hungry!! Those are such sweet pictures, I just wanna pick 'em up and hold them and love them and KISS those cheeks!!

BTW, out of curiosity, why aren't you using the names of your kids on your site? I'm just wondering cuz I'm not thinking that far ahead.....

Sarah-

I used to use the kids' names. After one post a long time ago I actually had someone we didn't know find our number in the phone book (based on info in my blog) and contact me about what I had written about one of my kids. He was kind & not a threat or anything, but I thought: what if it was some scary creep who wanted to hurt one of my kids? It was pretty easy for him to find my info. So I decided to go with "better safe than sorry". I figure people who know me & the fam know who I'm talking about, people who don't have a "name" to associate.

I don't use my kids names either. I don't even post pics of their faces. I am very much paranoid like that. Since I found you through another persons blog then I figure it would be so easy for some psycho to find me and mine.

But I love that my family can keep up with our lives this way.

Oooooh, I didn't think of that! When I started bloggin, I didn't use my son's name because of Hele's line of work. But now that I think about it, it might be MORE inportant now! Did you have to go back to all your old posts and change your kids' names? Thanks so much for your time, I really appreciate it!

And I totally agree that this is a GREAT way to keep in touch with family!
