But we are getting the hang of it. Lack of sleep is hard, as it always is with a newborn. But the big kids totally and completely adore their baby brother. It's almost overwhelming, how much love there is. Every time I sit down with Cole, they swarm. Like, run over and smother him with kisses and head touches and they sing him songs and want to hold him and be around him constantly. When he's sleeping they want to know where he is. When he's crying they want to help make him happy. It's cute, and endearing, and a little overwhelming at times. :)
Riley sometimes gets super excited and hyper around him, and I need to just remind her to stay calm. Jackson occasionally pokes him in the eye, and has hit him a total of three times. He is gentle and nice to his brother 95% of the time, which I think is a great percentage!
He kind of likes his MamaRoo (most expensive swing everrrrrr) but not really for lounging... it keeps him asleep, but it doesn't put him to sleep, if that makes sense. But he will hang out in there for a few minutes, especially if Riley is with him and reading to him!
Other favorite activities these days are sitting on the porch and waiting for daddy to come home, and then getting to drive the car up the driveway.
