well here we are. i figured this photo was cryptic enough to post. at least it doesn't reveal how truly haggard and tired i look. this was one of those great moments h. wanted to hold baby o. and it was so sweet and tender. i won't sugar coat it- as all of you mothers out there of more than one child can surely attest, it is a huge, HUGE adjustment for parents, olders sib(s) and of course baby. all things considered we are adjusting with i believe the usual bumps and tense moments. i have said to myself many times "calgon, take me away". but then i just look at little o. and h. fast forwarding yet another dvd (he doesn't watch them anymore, just fast forwards) and i know why all mothers do this. they are just so precious albeit lots of WORK. but as the nurse said in the hospital, being a mom isn't an easy job. amen sister, amen. i hope to check in soon again. please keep reading! thanks!
