[Introductions]

It's hard to believe that those pictures were taken nearly two weeks ago, Daniel laying eyes on his baby brother for the first time. He seemed genuinely pleased, which warmed my heart because of all the horror stories you hear about older children being jealous of new babies! Not that I'm surprised, I said all along I thought that Daniel would be a fantastic big brother, and he really is! From day one he's been loving and kind, sharing his toys and giving Joshua kisses! He even asks to hold him, we didn't even encourage him at first but he loves a quick cuddle! He gets concerned if he cries, and tells me to pick him up, and he doesn't seem jealous if I'm holding him, even if it means I can't do something for him. This may be down to the fact he has had someone else here to pay attention to him (Colin, or my Mum or Dad) but even when we've been alone in the morning he's been fantastic.

I've already spent a fair amount of time alone with my two boys, Colin went back to work last week and my Dad was here, but not first thing in the morning or late afternoon, and we coped! I'm feeling more or less back to 'normal', my recovery has been much better this time around but I have been a little sore and found it difficult to spend a long time with Daniel down on his level. Luckily he's brilliant at playing independently and letting me tidy up/cook dinner, but I feel guilty letting him play by himself too much! I an feeling pretty damn good today though! Only time will tell I guess, next week when I'm totally alone with them both!
