I wasnt sure how my kids were going to adjust to having a baby in the house... so far so good! They love him!!! Me, personally... I am having a way easier time adjusting to three then I did to two! Hunter story number 1...
When he came to visit Jonah and me in the hospital he came into the room and went right to Jonah, then turns to me and we had this conversation:
Hunter: Mommy, baby Jonah is here!
me: yep... he is
Hunter: I want to see your tummy
Hunter: Are you having another baby Jonah?
I was not offended!! I thought it was funny!!! In case you aren't familiar with post baby belly, right after you have a baby, your tummy doesn't go flat right away... you tend to go home looking about 4 months pregnant...Hunter story #2....
He likes to be "helpful" He tries to share with Jonah...
- he has tried to give him fishy crackers (Baby Jonah was hungry)
- he found an empty play bottle and tried to feed it to him
- Hunter loves to have stuffed animals cover his whole body... so he did that to Jonah, so proudly.
He truly wants to play with him and he does these things with such a pure heart, but I do have to keep my eyes on him :)
Haley is very helpful! She goes and gets me diapers (she is to young to change a diaper... darn it) she will get me lots of things when I am feeding him. She loves her baby brother a LOT.
I know this isn't the most attractive picture of me, but that isn't why it is here... This morning, after a VERY long night, both older kids got up and crawled into bed with me. I had fed Jonah at 5am, and fell asleep with him on my chest. It is sweet to cuddle with all three of my kiddos in bed!
