the big brother

I wasn't sure what to think about having 2U2 (2 kids under 2) or in my case, 2 kids under 17 months at the beginning. I had no idea what to expect. I worried about Hudson losing his baby-ness before I was ready. I worried that I wouldn't be able to give him all of the attention he needed. I worried that I wouldn't be able to spend enough one-on-one time with him. I worried that we were robbing him of his only child-ness. 

I was worried about nothing. Yes, it's hard. Yes, I have days where I want to scream or rip my hair out. But I have more days where I am so incredibly happy and thankful for the precious babies God has entrusted us with. Hudson has transitioned pretty much perfectly and loves his baby sister to pieces.

He does seem to know that when I am nursing Emma I am not very quick to get up and find him. He seems to do most of his table climbing when I'm nursing. Those are difficult times.

He loves Emma. He says her name more than any other word all day long. He gives her about 100 kisses a day. He tries to play with her and shares his toys with her. He loves her. Those are the beautiful times.

Having 2 kids 16 1/2 months apart has it's challenges but the good times FAR outweighs the difficult times. I love these 2 babies more than I ever thought possible.
