Baby Love Redefined

>> Sunday, August 17, 2008

I promise a more substantial post, probably with a similar theme, soon. But for now, I want to share with you some glimpses of this new precious little bundle that has stolen my heart. Or more accurately, made it double in size. This little one, who squeaks as he nurses and wrinkles his face right before he cries (which is really only when he is hungry) and loves to sleep with his cheek against my chest, is the most humbling and amazing little person. I sit and watch him, as he perfectly sleeps or squirms around or even as he cries, and my heart just swells. And to watch Lucas love his brother is overwhelming in ways I could have never imagined. He comes and kisses Caden's feet and touches his face and makes up his own songs about Caden when he wakes up in the morning or when Caden is crying in the car. "I am trying to help him not cry, Mommy," he says. He comes and sits next to me as I latch Caden on and says "Mommy, please read this book to Lucas and to Caden." I would love nothing more. Truly.
I would never have thought I could love another like I love Lucas. And I would have never imagined I could love Lucas more. Yet both have come true. And my heart swells.

Congrats Farrah! You look like you're doing great! You will be my inspiration that adding a 2nd child can indeed be better than adding the first. So often you hear the second is the hardest and that terrifies me because adding Anne was so incredibly difficult for me. Thank you for your love for your son and sharing it with us.

I can't wait to get my hands on that cutie in a few weeks! I'm so glad you are doing well and enjoying him, even in the early days of exhaustion. Did I tell you I had two other friends have boys on the same day? And another friend's boy celebrated his first birthday that day. Must be a good date for boys to be born.
