A newborn's perspective on being the 3rd child

This picture is nearly 3 years old now, but oh how it captures what it is like being the 3rd child!

Can you imagine how huge my daughter's head and son's head sticking into that baby gym must have seemed to my newborn son?!!!

And you know that is a 3rd child (or 4th or 5th) because otherwise those toddlers would never have been allowed so close to that fragile newborn!

Is it no wonder that now, as soon as that 3rd child finishes breakfast every morning he begins to ask, "Who will play wif' me?"

  2. That is so true, especially about the toddler not being allowed so near, if it wasn't the third child!

  14. So true! And cute! I was just thinking this morning about how different our 3rd child's life experience is. One of our fave stories is how I kept finding him loose from the play pen (a nice 6 sided structure) until one day I came into the living room to find his sister lifting up the side for him to crawl out under! I asked why, and at barely 3 yrs old she said "he wanted out." :) Kerry D. (p.s. He's doing fine, at 13 yrs. old now.)
