brother and sister

so much to catch up on...but for the time being, this will have to do! a few pics of my two babies. after about two hours home, kellen decided he'd like to hold the baby. i swear my heart is melting looking at this picture!

it's not going to be an easy adjustment for any of us, but i'm certain kellen is having the hardest time right now. he'd also like to be a baby...needed to sit in the baby swing all afternoon/evening next to the baby and even tried to climb up onto the nursing pillow when i was about to feed maya! has been crying quite a bit today and even went back to crawling for a little bit. it breaks my heart to think about how he must be feeling and i am trying to not get frustrated with him - because so far (and it's only been like 10 hours home!) he's been the more challenging one! why did i think newborns were so hard the first time around?

the thing that gets me through, is knowing that at the end of this...once everyone is settled and reassured of their place in this family...we've given kellen & maya the greatest gift of all - a sibling - and i'm certain they will be the best of friends.

oh my goodness i'm so glad and surprised that you already have a blog post on maya... look at you! i know it will be hard on k at first, but i agree, you have given him the best gift of all in a little sis and it will be no time before they are playing together! can't wait to meet maya when you guys are settled :)

You are officially the best multitasker of all time. Two kids AND blogging?! Oh, and keeping up on FB?! I feel lazy :-)

I love the picture of the two of them in the swing(s). So cute! Do you think the second time around w/ the newborn is easier? Granted, it's only been, like, one day :-)

Can't wait to see you and little maya!
