My Younger Son

July 30, 2010

Journaling Reads:

We always knew we hoped to have more than one child. We both have siblings and believe that it’s a wonderful experience to get to grow up with a sibling. But I have to admit that David is so great and easy that I was quite worried we couldn’t possibly get as lucky with the second one.

I was wrong.

Within moments of being born, Nathaniel made sure we were all head over heels in love with him. His Dad still thinks he’s an angel on earth and his brother enjoys nothing more than making him laugh.

And laugh he does. He’s the sweetest kid ever. Just like his brother, he also loves to play and can easily play by himself for a long time. But he also loves playing with David. He likes to come over to both of us occasionally and give us hugs. He loves to dance to music. He’s very good at expressing his emotions and communicating what he wants.

I must admit that I generally like being right. But this is one of those times when I am so grateful that I was wrong.

    Hi Karen, I struggled when I was pregnant with my second child, I wondered how I could ever love another child as much as my first. My little man was born 5 years ago – He’s name is Nathaniel too! and I would not live life without him. We all have the capacity to expand our hearts! :) love n peace to you and yours :)
