It is with an overflowing heart and joyful song that I am writing this blog post! As each of my babies has been born and grows so quickly into a small person, I wonder, “Is this my last baby? Will this be the last time I experience the wonderment of birth, the satisfaction of bringing new life into the world, and the plethora of firsts that come along with a new soul here on earth?!?!” After #babycate was born, 28 months ago, I felt a deep sadness that I talked of frequently; I tried to assuage my depression with the thought “I can’t wait to see who you become.” And after time, I was able to focus more and more positively on that mantra. As much as I wanted to be pregnant again, to hold my own newborn in my arms again, to watch another of my own babies grow and thrive and flourish under my constant care, I understood that if Cate were truly my last, I could be content with my seven amazing children. What else could I possibly want? Last week, that question was answered. Just One More Baby.
I have learned so much about mourning and grieving the children I currently mother every day all day. All the reasons I should not and will not again fall down that rabbit hole of sadness. This pregnancy and birth and baby may absolutely be my LAST, but I will rejoice at each milestone, at each inch grown, and at each step taken! I will not again allow myself to be tortured by the might, probably and maybes that sneak into my head. This could absolutely be the last baby I carry in my womb and birth from my own strength, but that is okay! Because I trust that everything that might and could happen, will. That everything that is supposed and predestined, will. That nothing is an accident. That there is a reason for everything. And this, Baby #8 aka #JustOneMoreBabyD, is the absolute consequence in trusting, believing, and allowing life to happen as it should. PAXbaby.com

Hi, it’s me! Jillian from PAXbaby; I have to tell you that this FANgirl thing is still so fresh & fun for me! Hehhee, I get so much joy from helping share the babywearing love, and when someone else recognizes that, it’s truly so amazing! So the next time you see me at Trader Joes, or park next to me at Disneyland, please be sure to say HI! I’d LOVE to give you a hug and be able to connect with you away from the computer screen! And if you want me to sign a carrier for you, you better believe I’m going to say YES <3 PAXbaby.com
Beco Baby Carriers and PAXbaby.com have had a long time babywearing love affair! We met when my fourth child was just 6 months old; Kolbe is now 9 years and officially too big to wear! Gabby, Beco’s owner and creator of some of our community’s most popular carriers, invited me to the Beco warehouse and HQ in Southern California where we spent a blissful afternoon geeking out about babywearing, cloth diapering and natural parenting! It’s been happily ever after for Beco and PAXbaby since 2006, and PAXbaby has eagerly followed all of Beco’s adventures, from the 4th Generation to the Butterfly (versions 1 and 2) to the Gemini, Soleil, and now the Toddler! What an amazing legacy Gabby has made for herself!
With all my heart, and all my love, I am overjoyed to be adding a new product to PAXbaby’s Beco collection, a wrap conversion made from a Tekhni PAXexclusive rainbow JUST for PAXbaby!
Coming soon with bells on our toes, PAXbaby’s Bekhnis will not fail to delight! Get ready! PAXbaby *happy babywearing*
I am not sure there is any job as exhausting and equally as rewarding as being a parent! I know that from sun up to sun down and beyond, PAXdaddy and I are at beck & call to the most amazing herd of children who each have something VERY important to say, often at the same time!! Why is it that when one toddler has to go to the bathroom, the other one decides they do too? It’s like a toilet paper relay race around here especially at dinnertime! But one day, when we are old, and our memories have faded to a dull fuzz, Aaron and I will look back at this time of our lives and laugh. Laugh at how insanely hard we worked every minute of every day, and laugh because we lived through it all! The big, the bad, and the ugly, it all will seem like a pleasant dream as we are surrounded by the glow of our children’s children’s love. It will be worth the crazy schedules, the cold coffee, and the minutes (no, hours) spent wiping small bums and singing Frosty the Snowman, over and over and over.
To you, my equally as exhausted friends, keep on smiling, keep on smiling! I know it’s hard, but your babies will remember your joy more than your sorrow so let your light shine out, even when times are rough!
And to my little loves, I adore you and don’t wish my life were any different, but do you think that maybe you could sleep in JUST a little in the morning? Thanks, your tired and ecstatically happy mama <3
Or is your love for both equally as passionate???PAXbaby.com
