Ronan has been apart of our family for one week and two days and there have been plenty of changes in our household. One big one is with Jacob and Aidan. I swear they are not the children I left at home when I went to the hospital. They now have two sides - a non listening, I'm going to do what I want to do, crazy side and a super sweet I love my new brother side. We have been challenged by the "normal" rebellious attitude that often accompanies siblings when a new arrival comes home. We expected it, but it has been harder than expected. I know (or at least hope) that once we get readjusted and back to a routine, things should calm down. On the flip side, the boys have only had rebellion towards us and not at all towards Ronan. They love him. A little too much at times. Luckily it doesn't seem to bother him too much. It's harder for me, it seems at times they are smothering him with their love. (Should I really be complaining about this? :-) ) But I am so thankful they love him and aren't mean to him. Below are some pictures of what happens if Ronan is trying to enjoy some tummy time . . .
Enjoying sweet relaxation . . .
Until the Big Brothers arrive home from a trip to the park with Farmor and Gomps
SO excited to see their brother and love on him
I really think Aidan would lay next to Ronan all day like this if he could,
no real understanding of "personal space". It is sweet though.
There's no escaping, they've got him surrounded!
More sweet lovin'
