As I sit here listening to him grunting and groaning, I do recall many similarities with Colin. Wes and I aren't sure if all babies make the same noises and faces but both of our boys sure have. Thankfully, those memories weren't permanently erased, just pushed to the cob-webbed corners of my mind.
Colin seems to love his little brother and is very gentle and concerned with his every cry and movement. Their first meeting was very sweet. Colin wanted to see his parts - specifically his elbow and his feet. Meanwhile Sawyer jerked his head towards Colin's voice the minute he heard him speak. I guess he's been hearing it for several months now and just recognized the voice. It almost seemed as if he smiled when he heard it.
Back at the homeplace, Colin has become a great little helper and loves to fetch clean diapers and put the dirty diapers in the diaper pail. He loves to kiss "Pete" on the forehead and touch his nose. He got excited when Wes told him Sawyer was almost a week old because he thought that meant he could now teach him to walk. We clearly have our work cut out for us trying to teach the concept of time.
Wes and I are doing ok on the sleep front. We knew this was coming so somehow we feel like we've prepared ourselves - even though that's totally not possible. I will say with him being the second, he seems somewhat easier in general. We've come to the conclusion it's because we have a better idea what to expect and we're just more relaxed. We've already taken him out a couple of times and I'm pretty sure we had not done that with Colin at this stage. We'll see how we're feeling this time next week (:
