Last night around 12:30 AM I heard Andrew crying and went to his room. I opened the door immediately, assuming that he would be standing there. When I opened the door I saw a mound on the floor. Both he and John had gotten off their mattresses and were laying together, hugging each other, on the floor. I thought it was so sweet that they had found comfort in being close to each other. Little Andrew looked up and said "Mommy, tiss"! I gave him a kiss and he went right back to sleep.
My precious Wyatt slept from 9:30 PM to 6:00 AM. He is SUCH a good baby! I am not sure if it is his personality that makes him so easy, or the fact that there is just one of him, or maybe the fact that he is a term baby...or maybe it is all those things rolled into one that help make him so wonderful, but he is just a joy. Ashley and I were talking recently about how different this experience called parenting has been with him than it was with the twins. No home health, no monitors, no cardiologists, no surgeons, no physical therapists, no ENT or allergists; it is so much less stressful, but we are not taking it for granted. We are so lucky to have had this "normal" experience after having had our twins almost 3 months early. We got to hold him right when we he was born, Ashley was able to cut the cord...there were only 5 people in the room when he was born (including me)!! It has been truly wonderful.
