I feel like it was just yesterday when I wrote this post about how our family was going to accept a boy.
Wait scratch that — I shouldn’t say accept when really what I mean is how we were going to welcome a boy into the family after 4 girls. I remember being nervous worrying over the girls being jealous of their new brother. I worried that they wouldn’t bond with a boy and well, I just wasn’t sure how it was going to be welcoming baby no. 5 in general. But it has been anything short of amazing. Grayson is one loved baby boy! Literally, the stats show it.
Average squeezes a day // 65
Average times my 20-month-old calls Grayson “her baby” // 30
Average kisses a day // 78
Number of little mommas // 4
Number of fights over who is going to hold him since he was born // 14
Number of times they OFFER to change his diaper // every day
Number of times my 5-year-old asks to “Please Mom let me pick out his outfit and dress him?” // every day
They love him. They cuddle him. They check on him constantly. They are always worrying over him. Huddling over him. Fighting over him. Waiting for him be able to sit-up and wishing he could walk and play with them. It amazes me every day how strong the sibling love for Grayson shines. They just love him so much! And I have plenty of pictures to prove it.
