We are back! I thought I would be able to blog from Korea, but the Google Gods blocked me from logging in. Boo.
Now though, we are home and there's not a ton of time to catch up. I'll catch you up on our trip soon, but for now, know that we are settling in and things are going pretty well. Little Man is having a tough time sharing his mommy and daddy, but he's been a great big brother right from the start. He likes helping with diaper changes and feeding. And he is happy to show his brother the toys and give him kisses.
Little Brother is a happy-go-lucky guy and seems to feel right at home. We are seeing more smiles each day and he loves following Little Man around. On Monday, we'll have been his parents for a whole week! It seems like so much longer than that, but there are small things that will remind me that we are still strangers.
Like when I'm cleaning his diaper and scrubbing like heck to get a stubborn piece of poop off his butt. And then I realize that it's a mole. :)
We are spoiled by having my folks here, which has made the getting-to-know-you phase a whole lot easier. They tend to Little Man, shop, clean, cook and remember to take the dog out! Parenting two children is going to be a lot tougher in about a week. I'd better live it up while I can.
We are concentrating on enjoying these first days together. And reminded constantly that life is a very sweet and special gift.
