I thought it would be fun to pull up Drew and Brody's baby pictures to compare them with Alia's.  So the pattern from the top is Alia, Brody, Drew, Alia, Brody, Drew.  It's so funny to see these babies at this stage.  So alien looking.  It's amazing how they start off looking like this compared to what they look like now.





These three are doing so good together.  When they first arrived at the hospital to see me and the baby, Brody saw me holding Alia.  He put his hands over his eyes and started crying.  He was so jealous.  But as soon as we let Brody hold her he fell in love.  He never gets jealous of her but of me.  "I hold it, I hold it."  He says.  If I say no, I have to hold him off with all my might because he wants to give her loves.  Drew has stepped up once again to big sister, and has been a good help.  She wards off Brody, gets diapers, and wants to hold baby whenever she can.  Kurt has by far been my biggest helper.  He's cooked A TON, cleaned like a fiend, and is willing to do any favors I ask of him, big or small.  The best thing though, is when Kurt comes into the room and his face lights up when he sees her.  And I am doing GREAT!  I'm recovering good, getting enough sleep, and love having a newborn again.  I never thought I would say it but I love newborns.  I always wanted them to get past this stage and move on where they aren't so dependent and can laugh and smile, but I want Alia to stay like this as long as she can.  She eats, sleeps, and poops.  Hardly cries.  The only dilemma I have is nursing.  Can it be any more painful?  You would think that after two kids you'd be somewhat of an expert but I feel like it's my first child all over again.  Other than that we are doing great and having fun being a family of five!

Wow, Drew and Brody were already their own babies when they were young. Without even having to read the post I knew which baby was which! They are such cute kids. I am glad things are going so well. It is so cute how Brody cried at first.
