I assume that there are joys that are unique to every stage of motherhood, but for me, the joys that come with caring for a baby are in a class by themselves. In fact, it may have been those joys that kept me eager to have more children for so many years, even though I was well acquainted with how much work they were! The thought of having another newborn to love–cradling him in my arms, smelling the sweet scent of his downy skin, nursing him, feeling his warmth against me, watching his pulse beat in his soft spot while I brushed my lips against his hair–these joys would invariably cause me to long for another baby once my youngest began to fend for himself. On this page, I’m collecting links to posts that I’ve written about my Baby Joys, the pleasures that I find in caring for an infant, and a few tips that I hope you will find useful while you care for yours.
