Jake & Ryan went out somewhere together. The kids needed a bath, which is usally a two person job when it comes to getting them back out. However...well, I didn't think about that until they were both IN! I managed AND even snapped a few pics! Mal was all about it, as usual, Dawson was extremely unsure of the situation. She wrapped her little arm around his and he settled right in. What a good sissy!
And this....well, I thought about this right after I found out that everything was gone. It made my heart hurt! The babies were about 7 months or so. Dawson got home from the hospital just a day or two before, of course we were Life Flighted back within another day, but well, let's just not go there.
Mal was really enjoying Dawson. She was so curious about him. She had just Dad & Jake for almost 5 months by this time. Then Mom showed up with ANOTHER baby. They didn't ever spend time together in the hospital, in fact, most of the time they were in seperate hospitals. It was amazing to see their connection as soon as we brought him home.
Mal had mastered (after much physical therapy) the art of soothing herself, a.k.a. sucking on her own fist. Dawson hadn't figured that out and she seemed to sence he needed the help. After sucking her own fist and watching him fuss she decided to take matters into her own hands. She grabbed him by the shoulder and pulled him toward her, held him in place and popped her little fist right in his mouth! See....
That was a priceless moment. She was so serious about it. I was actually kind of struck with the thought of women being born with the nature of nurturing all ready ingrained in them. I think Mal proved that!
Now, as if that wasn't enough, the biggest and best part of recovering everything was this....Actual video of Mal trying to help him. I have watched this at least 5 times in the last 10 min. Can I just say I would have twins again in a SECOND?! It is amazing. There is nothing like it! Oh, did I say I was baby hungry...I meant baby STARVING! I love being a Mom!
(You are going to want to pause the music so you can hear the breathing. TOO FUNNY!)
