Nolan has also been doing really well with the transition. He can be quite protective of his little brother and becomes concerned whenever he hears Lucas cry. If Nolan hears Lucas crying he stops what he is doing to run over to Lucas to say "Wucas it's ok...it's ok Wucas." Nolan often asks to hold Lucas and loves helping with diaper changes. It is so sweet to watch Nolan interact with Lucas and I look forward to watching the boys grow-up together.
Probably the hardest part for me has been not being able to spend as much time with Nolan. Kevin has taken on primary responsibility for Nolan since I spend a lot of time feeding Lucas (Lucas is also a BIG eater and gained almost 1 pound in our first week home from the hospital!!), which has definitely been a big help and I think has helped Nolan with the transition because he has continued to get plenty of attention and has been able to have some special trips with daddy and last week with Grandma Sue. Like I said this has enabled me to meet Lucas's needs, however I have also missed being part of the trips to the zoo, children's museum, and today the air show. I know Lucas and I will soon be able to participate in these trips as well but it definitely has been hard not participating in these activities. I have cherished the moments that Nolan and I have shared, including making cookies and cupcakes, and the nights that I have put Nolan to bed have also been very special.
