This little guy really is so precious to us. I can’t believe we are so lucky to have him.
I remember when we were expecting baby #2 I would look at my son Jack and wonder “How on earth are moms supposed to love 2 children equally? There’s no way.” I loved Jack with all that I had, and I couldn’t imagine being able to appropriately split that love. I was a little worried for the 2nd baby because how was anyone supposed to compete with my adorable, spunky son?
When Elena made her grand appearance, however, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I didn’t actually need to split the difference, but rather my heart simply grew and made room for another child. I couldn’t believe that I could love them both so completely, and yet it happened.
The same thing happened when Max joined our family. I felt like “The Grinch” when his heart grew another size. My heart grew up another size to make room for baby #3. I am constantly amazed at the beauty of newborns and just how precious, delicate, and perfect they are.
There is nothing that can quite compare to the first few weeks with a new baby in the home.
