That moment: Needed.

That moment...
When the baby wakes up from what I assume to be a nightmare - crying the saddest cry with the biggest crocodile tears... and before I could even reach all the way down the crib she was already clung around my neck pulling and climbing herself up... She nuzzled in... she held herself around my neck SO tightly. Sniffled... sighed... and her breathing slowed... her heart stopped pounding so fast. She loosened her grip... We sat down in the rocker that my great grandma rocked my grandpa in... and my grandma rocked my mom in... and my mom rocked me in... and I've rocked my babies in... she drifted off to sleep... every time I even THOUGHT about putting her down she'd take a deep breath like - "don't even think about it mom"... so we rocked... and rocked... and rocked... and I touched... and stared... and kissed... and I missed you... I miss you every day... every day I have to work... every day I run to the store... every day I wake up and you've been sleeping all night... Every day that you've grown and changed from that tiny baby I brought home... and it was That Moment... that I wondered who needed who more?

Am I comforting her? Or is she comforting me? I always say how much I needed her... It wasn't just a want for a girl... I needed one. And even more so - I needed her... There is just something about that girl. The bond that I have with her in indescribable... Not more than the boys of course, just different. Everyone needs a Rozzlyn Marie. But Im the luckiest person on earth because I have her... I feel like she's all the best parts of Zaq and I... She's so funny, and so incredibly smart... and just. so. damn. cute. She melts me daily... literally a mushy - gushy - aweeeeeeeeee... kinda melting. She has my big eyes and lashes... Zaq's big squishy lips. The most perfect little nose... and best buddha belly... *sigh* just perfection. I think back sometimes to the two miscarriages I had before her. What a nightmare that was... and we stopped trying for 6 months because I thought - I can't handle this one more time. It's just too much. Finally at the end of that 6 months I was ready to give it one more go... and I got her... all I wanted was a healthy baby... and instead I got the most amazing, perfect, healthy, beautiful baby girl I could ever imagine. And I can't even begin to think about what I would be missing had I decided it wasn't worth the risk to try again... Everything happens for a reason. Right?

Nuby No Spill Sport Sipper

I may have a new favorite kid cup! Ok - Ill admit it... Im totally THAT MOM. If my kids want something to drink and its not at my table - its going in a sippy cup. I still cringe every time my husbands since down with a soda on the couch. I want to get him a bib and a bottle nipple, lol I mean... its an offwhite couch and I have three kids and a husband. I have to be careful. LOL

I also send them to bed with a sippy cup of water... Maybe its too many scary movies, but Im always freaked about a random house spider or something crawling in or *shivers* ok, you get it... moving on. They also like to be able to put it in bed with them for easy access - but not have to worry about spilling it...

Here is my dilemma - like most big boys would, they complain all the sippy cups are for babies... and my complaint? Most of the big boy ones come with far too many parts to keep track of and properly cleaned... except for these. Im sold.

The Nuby No Spill Sport sipper is my hero. Just the one silicone spout pops out for SUPER easy cleaning... and my favorite - dishwasher safe... there are grippers on the sides so they're easy to hold on to... and they come in bright bold colors so I grabbed a blue and a green for the boys' favorite colors. They love them and specifically ask for them every day and before bed. Im thinking about tossing all the others (or donating them) and buying a couple more of these so Im not washing them 100 times a day, lol.

I highly recommend you running out to grab some! I grabbed mine at walmart for just a $2.97 each.
