Family of 4

We have now been home from the hospital for 10 days, and are settling into life as a family of 4. Julien has adjusted much better than I expected, although he does have his moments. He likes to help, and the other day I changed Kyle's diaper without getting Jules to help - well, that was unacceptable, and Kyle got a truck thrown at his head (I was there to intervene - but you get the picture).

He loves to give his brother hugs and kisses, and loves to hold him also!

Kyle has a much different disposition than Julien did. He is so placid, I almost don't kinow how to handle it.  I am used to a fussy/cranky baby that won't settle down without nursing; and now, I have a baby that almost never cries, only nurses for food, and actually lets me sleep at night (I get up more with Julien than I do with Kyle). Kyle gives me 4-6 hours stretches, and I find myself having to wake him to feed because I get so engorged with milk that I can't sleep. I even had to pump after feeding him on Tuesday night because I was so full.

All this to say that I love my boys. I couldn't have asked for better kids - they are so sweet and precious, and I wouldn't trade them for anything!
