Things are going very well. I say this in hopes that they continue to go as well as they have been. It seems almost too good to be true. Other than having a bit of the "baby blues"--which will hopefully not become any worse for me this time, I am feeling as good as can be expected.
Hanna and Joe are still getting along great with one another and loving having Jesse around. They've played so many imaginative games the past few days. They've done really well considering we've been in so much.
I am so proud of my sweet Jack. Bringing Jesse home while Jack is still so young has been emotionally hard on me. It brings out my "mommy guilt", so having him react positively has helped me out alot. I have been trying to make sure that I still take time with each of the kids one-on-one each day, but especially Jack who was used to getting so much of my attention daily. Today I spent lots of time reading and holding him, and it was great:-).
Jesse is a happy, sleepy boy so far. As I mentioned earlier, it all just seems to good to be true, and I so hope it doesn't change. Here are a couple pictures of him from yesterday and today. He is sleeping with his eyes half open in the last one:-).
I pray that our settling in and getting everyone used to a new routine will continue to go so smoothly for each of us. I pray too that Jesse will continue to be so happy and easy going. This is such a blessing and makes it so much easier on us all. I am so very blessed. I was looking at all of my kids today as they played and I was feeding Jesse, and just can't believe that they are all mine:-). I love them so much and am so very thankful for such a beautiful family and a home so full of love.
