Fatherhood Friday's

It's been awhile since I've done a post but I'm back!

I never would have thought that I would have 4 kids. Well I take that back, I never thought I would have had 4 kids by the time I was 28. The last few years have been a blur to me. I try to live each day to the fullest and get the most out of each day but sometimes it is hard. I wish that I could spend more time with each of them individually to really find out who they are. I am going to try and spend more time with them as individuals to see who each of them really are. I know with the boys each of them are totally different when you are alone with them. it is kind of scary to see how different they really are.

So far for me with the girls it has been totally different than with the boys (and not just all the folds you have to wipe when changing a diaper). Jen has been feeding the girls so I have only really got to feed them once. They have taken a bottle a few times but they would rather have the real nipple. I am sure as they get older I will get to feed them more and more but for now I just get to sit back and watch. The girls are also sleeping much better than the boys ever did. Maybe that is us as parents knowing more what the baby wants and not being afraid to give the more to eat when they want it. Now that I am saying this they are going to stop sleeping and not eat. That’s just my luck.

I have also been pretty nervous / excited with this pregnancy. I love to see the way the boys react to the girls and how they do enjoy helping. I am nervous for how the boy are going to be when they are home for good (well I am also nervous for how my wife is going to be with 4 kids 2 and under). I just hope that they will listen and not feel left out when Jen is taking care of the girls. I know that my wife can do it. She is an organization specialist and has much more patience than I do. I love you honey and Jackson and Joel and Julianne and Jocelyn.

Love Jon DADA
