Miles’ Smiles

His Baby Perfume
It makes me swoon

He’s Baby Delight

–me, singing about tiny Nat

I saw my friend Emily today. She has one of those kind of babies that makes you want to have a baby. Little Miles is in that “jolly fellow” phase, where he is grinning and bouncing his head at everyone and everything, and only once in a while stopping to puzzle over a new face, a set of keys, etc. But it is usually okay with Miles, especially if he can chew on it. His little feet were fat and edible, his belly round, and a spot of drool remained on his chin from his recent fest with my keys. Emily offered to wipe off my keys but I would not let her. You could get drunk on that smell.

I used to call little Nat’s drool Baby Perfume. I used to love it when I would have my face next to his and he would have his thumb in his mouth, then he’d take it out and turn his head quickly to me. His lips would brush my face. “Slimed!” my dad once said, smiling. Today Miles’ Slimey Smiles made me think of Baby Delight and his Baby Perfume.

The Babylust is running strong in my veins. Sometimes I cannot bear being done with that.

Look at baby Nat, that little sugar boy!


He’s absolutely delicious!

Babylust, a good word. I’ve been going through that lately, missing those early years. We’ve even discussed adoption.

I am fifty years old. Somebody needs to slap some sense into me, ya know?

I do love the smell of babies.

I sit here, almost 42 years old and 7 months pregnant. I must say, it is a bit harder the older you get, but oh so worth it!

My last one was born two years ago come next Friday, and for him, I knew he needed a sibling or the world might be a much more difficult place for all!! (my first son was born in 1994 with a rare chromosome disorder and died in 1996). It is wonderful feeling those beautiful little kicks and punches inside me – I never get tired of that.

If I could bottle up that baby perfume Susan, I would certainly send you a bottle!

That photo is so gorgeous that I admit I cried a bit.
So sweet. So, so sweet.

OMG, that picture is adorable; makes me want to eat him up! I ache right along with you in that Babylust; Nik will be our only (biological) child but what a wanted and loved child he is.

I caved in to babylust and had the twins at 44. My life has started all over again…instead of planning for retirement, I’m planning a new career 🙂 – autism specialist and early interventionist. If it weren’t for Jakie’s condition, I wouldn’t have had the motivation to move forward. Late life babies are blessings on many levels.
