Yesterday, I spent my first afternoon alone with my two sons. (Hmmm that sounds strange..."my two sons"..) Anyway, meet Aaron and Adrian:
Aaron has been much more generous than I had anticipated. I know he was looking forward to meeting the baby but I expected the novelty to wear off as soon as he realized how much of my time the baby would take up. Instead, he's been more than understanding and even tells me that he thinks the baby needs a feed.
Adrian has also been very giving. He has generously donated his cuddle time with mom by having good long sleeps during the day. This has allowed me to maintain some sort of focus on Aaron. And when he's awake, he patiently lets Aaron play with him. Aaron treats him like a doll at the moment, pulling his arms this way and that. He likes nuzzling the baby too....sometimes sniffing him. I guess he's exploring his tiny new
brother in his own way.
Thats all for today. Its after 4pm and cluster feeding has started. Typing with only my left hand is tiring!
