Jonah is going on five months and we are finally starting to hit a stride around here. While there are still several days where I end up collapsing in bed when the day is over, I feel like there are more days now where I sit back and can say, “This isn’t so bad. Maybe I can handle having two kids…”
I think what’s making it so much easier, is watching these two interact. Watching their bond start to grow and develop…
Jonah idolizes his big brother. He loves him to pieces. He sits all day, every day and just watches him. He’s reaching the point now where he can interact and “play” a bit. Noah gets his toys out and sits with him on the floor to play. They eat breakfast together every morning, they watch cartoons together, they talk and interact. It’s heartwarming and makes me love the fact that I have two boys even more. There are so many times during the day where Jonah only wants his brother…times when Noah is the only person that can calm him down when he’s cranky and make him feel better when he’s fussing.
There are days where I hang my hand and want to run and hide under the blankets until bedtime…
but most days?
I’m just happy that I get to spend my days with them
