When my first son was born, I created his birth announcement and used it as his first picture that anyone ever saw of him. It was a picture I took in the hospital when he was one day old.
For son number two, I also created a birth announcement using the same format/picture idea as the first one. In this picture, No.2 was less than one day old, but it was still the day after he was born.
I’m still shocked at how different our boys look; I mean, yes I see it every day that siblings don’t look like twins or whatever, but I still can’t get it around my head that they aren’t meant to be the same looking! I keep thinking that 1 + 2 = 3, and if we add 1 + 2 again, it should equal the same thing!
No.1 loves No.2 with all he’s worth, and he has been just thrilled with having him around since the minute he was born… well, since he came into the delivery room after the birth. He was so much in love with him that he refused to go to bed the night he was born. Our first night as a family of four was spent as two at home, and two at the hospital. It was hard on Mommy because it was the first time I’d ever been separated from No.1 for more than 2-3 hours, and worse, overnight! Daddy came back in the morning and No.1 came in the afternoon with Grampa and Gramma.
I am so thrilled to be a mother of boys.
But I still wonder what our little girl would look like.
