It is easy to feel as if you are not giving your children enough. In my own experience it is not that I'm not giving them enough stuff but I worry about not giving them enough of myself. With them so close together I don't have the luxury, nor do they, of giving them an extended baby-hood or a leisurly preschool phase. Most days we just push through, trying to drown out the noise and get through the day. So I often feel like they are not getting attention, seeing enough joy, from me. I hope that these pictures of Cecilia's first meal remind me of the joy that I've been able to give them. I do believe that the gift of a sibling outweighs the chaos that the extra sibling brings. And when I look at these pictures I think that they agree with me.
