The Determined Caterpillar

Who was it that said the second child is typically more laid-back or easygoing?

It seems the Hen emerged from the womb alternately smiling and crying.  We were still in the hospital with him when I said to Jason ‘why is he crying so much…I thought brand-new babies were supposed to be in a coma-like state for the first couple of days?’ (Panic evident in my voice.)

Those first impressions have proven to be correct.  He is quick to smile and quick to cry.

As I watch him ‘lunge’ forward, attacking his big brother with hands and mouth, grabbing fistfuls of hair while gnawing him like a bone, I can only think: we’d better get some black and white striped jerseys for the fights ahead.
