Brynn Morgan has arrived!
Big sister Kaia spent the night with us and did quite well, but by 11AM when it was time to go meet her baby sister she was ready to go. On the way in as we were drilling her on seeing mommy, daddy and baby Brynn - and how she was a big sister she proclaimed, "OK I try." When it came down to sharing daddy's lap with baby Brynn she did what every 2 yr. old does - tried to push her off daddy's lap. Such is the beginning of sibling rivalry.
Now, everyone is home and the adjustment will begin. I try to remember what that was like after Jonathan was born - I came home to Conor, 3, but also Chad, 9, who we had adopted just 7 mos. earlier. Mark's mother graciously stayed with the boys while I was in the hospital, but had to return home as soon as I was home. Somehow we all manage to adjust as will they - as I like to say - it's our new normal.
