"You have nothing in this world more precious than your children. When you grow old, when your hair turns white and your body grows weary, when you are prone to sit in a rocker and meditate on the things of your life, nothing will be so important as the question of how your children have turned out. It will not be the money you have made. It will not be the cars you have owned. It will not be the large house in which you live. The searing question that will cross your mind again and again will be, How well have my children done?"

Life with TWO...CONTINUED

Well, my first post should basically sum things up!! We are doing great here with two. Nikki is "adjusting" to the change and pretty much just manages to keep the kiddos alive for now. I'm sure she will eventually figure out how to clean and get dinner on the table as well...but for now, happy healthy kids are a pretty acceptable start!! :)
Lilee is just a precious addition to our family. She is beginning to show a bit of crabbiness that echos Keat's first few months...but we are refusing to mention the "C" word...colic. We figure the power of positive thinking will keep our happy baby happy. When she isn't grumpy though, she is an absolute doll. She smiles at daddy all the time and can even roll over. We thought it was a fluke, but she's done it 3 times now...she's got to get an early start on things to be able to keep up with her big brother!!
Keaton is adjusting so well to having a new baby sister. Perhaps, better than the rest of us!! He gives her kissesand loves her so much. He is definately taking more of an interest in her now.
Cute sibling story: The other day we ventured out to the zoo. It was my first time with both kiddos. We did pretty well until it was time to leave and Keat showed his age by throwing a great tantrum and Lilee was hungry so she was screaming. FINALLY, we got everyone in the stroller and headed to the car. Lilee was still crying so I asked her if she wanted me to sing to her. Without missing a beat, Keat started to sing..."lalallalalllalaaalal"! It was absolutely adorable. He tries to help out as much as he can and we are grateful for his help!!
