So, like I have said before, we have had a very busy summer and of all the very fun and exciting things that have happened this summer our favorite part would have to be this. On August 2, 2012 little Cru Nicholas Barker was born!! He was 6 lbs. 3 oz. and 20 inches long. So compared to little Sophie (who was only 5 lbs 4 oz and 18 inches long) he was big. ;) He is pretty much the cutest little guy EVER, and he is such a good little baby. Especially since the poor little guy has been all over the place since he was born. (more about that in my next post)
He loves loves loves to be held, and Sophie loves to hold him. Although I don't let her hold him as much as she would like I think. I have to watch her constantly, because if she is anywhere near him she just wants to hug him or kiss him or lay by him, and she is pretty good for the most part but She hasn't quite got the concept of being "soft" with him, although she really tries. Its pretty cute to see her with him and how much she just loves him! He is always the first thing she asks about when she wakes up in the morning. Its very cute!
We are so glad that he has finally joined our family, and we couldn't be happier. I am so thankful for him and for Sophie. I still have a very hard time believing that I have two kids now! Ok lets be honest I still cant believe I have one kid let alone two... But I absolutely LOVE being a mom! It really is the most rewarding thing in the whole world. They seriously bring Nick and Me so much happiness and they are just so cute and fun! Don't get me wrong I definitely have my moments where I feel super inadequate and... I dont even know what the word is... overwhelmed? Ya I think that's it. I feel overwhelmed, but its worth it, and you know, I guess the fact that its hard sometimes (more than I would like to admit I'm sure) is what makes it that much better and I'm so grateful for it.
