Happy New Year
Things are going well out here. Nick is a pretty calm baby as far as newborns go, and it is certainly easier the second time around. I remember the chief emotion when we had Jack was terror – we were living in constant fear of him and what could happen. With this baby we are certainly not scared, we know what we’re doing, and we already have a kid routine in the house.
The main reason I am not able to blog, or get anything done really, is that I never want to put the baby down. I just sit and stare at him all day long, carry him around like a doll, and generally enjoy his company. I know I will forget how it was to hold him as an infant as I did with Jack, so I’m just trying to enjoy him as much as I can until he gets bigger. I suppose this time around I know what comes next so I am not anxious about it, and I just want to take in every bit of this experience as I can.
In many ways having a second baby has made me appreciate Jack even more as well. I realize how much he has developed in two short years, how amazing he is as a person, and how fun it is to talk with him. He even sings now – I taught him Santa Claus is coming to Town, and even though he only sings about every 8th word, it’s still fun to sing with him.
So that’s what we’re up to at the Adams household. We are trying to recover from the craziness of the holidays, Joe is getting back to work where he belongs, and thanks to my mom the house is returning to some semblance of order. Tomorrow Jack is going to visit Grandma Gloria and Grandpa Tom and everyone is very excited about that – we have kept him here since the baby was born and I think he’s starting to wonder why he’s stuck at home!
We wish you all a happy new year, and I hope to get more pictures up soon!
this age is SO MUCH FUN isn't it? my grandson is about 2 1/2 and he's just a riot .. he's got such a funny personality .. sings laughs .. and even jokes ... he's got a silly sense of humor. i had forgotten how precious this age is ...
i'm glad you're taking the time to enjoy those special moments ...
Happy New Year!!
