So for all of you who have at least 2 kids . . . . . . I want to know how to prepare the first for when #2 comes along??? I've heard all kinds of stories about kids reacting different ways to when you bring baby #2 home. Easton knows all about baby Mia in my tummy but when I ask if he is ready for baby Mia to come live with us he says "no mom, not yet." I really think he will do okay once he realizes the extent of the situation but does anyone have any last minute advice?
I just can't imagine loving another child as much as I love Easton but that is the capacity of a mother, enough heart to love them all. Easton has grown up too fast on me. He cracks me up with his cute little personality. His mind is like a sponge and if I ever start wondering where he picked something up from, I can guarantee it's from me or Scott. Little things we don't even realize we do or say. Incredible!
We recently got a home security system that beeps every time an exterior door is opened and it indicates which door it is (to help reduce my paranoia of Easton walking out of the house without me knowing). Quite often we will be going out through the garage to get into the car to run errands and a voice says "beep beep . . . garage door." Easton now responds by saying "O.K. lady!" It's hillarious! Also during sacrament meeting at church he has taken to saying things very loudly, determined to provide a little entertainment to those around us. There have been quite a few incidents but my favorite was a few weeks ago when he had a bit of a crusty booger hanging half way out of his nose. I did the motherly thing and tried to "remove" it. Right after my failed attempt (Easton is too quick) he gives me this look and yells "no mommy, stop pickin' my nose!" Needless to say my face turned a few more shades of red as half of the congregation turned to look at us. We still love him!
