You know, I would be lying if I said I didn't worry at all about how my kids would respond to having a new baby brother. I didn't know what to expect. I didn't know how they would react or treat him, but I was blown away. Honestly, I remember thinking, if only adults could be loving and accepting the same way kids are. Kids love without expecting or wanting anything in return and it's beautiful.
I was so excited to see how Coyer was with his new baby brother. I thought he would be the one wanting to hold him and care for him all the time, since he's the one that wanted a "brown" baby like him 😉 It was different than what I thought though. Coyer tended to care for Baylic and want to play with her and Kedren was the one always right next to Daeston. It was HIS turn to be a big brother and take care of someone that needed him. He was the one asking if he could feed him, help change him, and snuggle with him. He was too young to really be a help when Baylic was born, but this time he wanted to be the big brother.
There is nothing sweeter than sitting back as a mom and watching one of your children love on the other. I know that I would have regretted it BIG time if we would have left our kids at home. I would have missed all these sweet moments and memories. Moments that are SO important to have from day one. Daeston was not only bonding with Danny and I, but also his siblings and that was just as important.
We spent the day "locked up" in the house waiting for some snow to melt so we could venture out with the kids and let them burn energy. We ALL needed to get out, including mama. 😉
Hi, I'm Kansas! I wish we could be doing this face to face over coffee. Maybe someday, till then this will have to do!
