So, towards the end of the pregnancy and definitely during labor I worried about this decision...to have another baby. I worried about our lives being turned upside-down and Andrew's reaction and how I would be able to handle all of it. During labor I kept thinking, "again?!? I am doing this to myself again?!?" And now I keep thinking, "what a fantastic decision." This kid is just so cute and sweet and I am bonkers for him.
Andrew enjoys Isaac himself. But is really struggling with the transition. He is also been battling a fever and has been feeling very out of sorts. When Isaac is around he 'tickles' him and shows us his little ears and hands and nose. But when he and Dave were alone, Dave asked him if he was feeling tired. Andrew said, "No. Sad. Baby brother." Poor guy. But we are so glad that he is able to talk about it, even if just a little bit.
I'm sure the two of them will be in cahoots with their rebel-rousing way before I'm ready. You just wait, Andrew.
