Sign of acceptance?

Andrew has been adjusting a little more each day to being a big brother, and tonight, we hit the motherload! Knowing my eldest son and his unique personality, I'm still waiting for him to ask "When can we put him back in your tummy, mommy?" Is it a sign of true acceptance, now that he has actually held Jacob in his arms??? One can only hope!

Earlier this afternoon, Andrew received my vote for being the "Cutest Fireman." After 10 days at home, he's still finding ways to keep busy and have fun! We are very much looking forward to getting out of the house tomorrow and heading to playgroup. As many of you know, one of my creative parenting techniques (aka. tricks) for getting Andrew out of the house, is a game we call "race the clock." I time Andrew as he gets ready and out the door and he gets very excited to get out of the house before the timer beeps. I'm thinking I may need to use this technique for myself tomorrow morning...how long will it take to get myself + 2 kids ready and out the door in the AM...stay tuned to find out!

OMG!!! Amy, your posts are incredible! I laugh, and I cry, and I feel so connected and wish I could be there to give everyone big hugs. These are such great stories and a great way to capture some of these moments.
Good luck at playgroup. We can't wait to hear what happens next.
Love ya!
