Andi and Eddie have many similarities and differences. The most important similarity they share is that their parents and family love them very much and cherish time spent with them. Some similarities they share as babies include: they both weighted 8 plus pounds when they were born. They both have blue eyes and lite strawberry blonde/brownish/rusty color hair. They both started sleeping through the night around 2 months old and they both nursed well. They also have the most beautiful smiles that'll just melt your heart (in my opinion!!!).  Although they share some commonalities as babies, they are also very different. Obviously, Eddie is 4 years older than Andi and has been potty trained for two years now. Andi, on the other hand, goes through 6-10 diapers a day. Eddie can feed himself (when he wants to eat), while I have to feed Andi bottles. Eddie wants to play outside, catch frogs, play trucks, go swimming, play baseball (sometimes) and ride on his four wheeler, where as Andi has to do tummy time and learn how to grab objects hanging above her. Eddie has a well developed vocabulary for a four year old and talks non-stop, while Andi is just finding her voice letting out squeals of joy here and there. Eddie is all boy and so far Andi is all girl! 

Here are a few pictures of my two very different, yet the same, beautiful children:

8 weeks later...

Andi is growing fast and adjusting to having a big brother, mom and dad. She is smiling and talks to us when she is awake with oo's and ah's. She is gaining weight at a steady speed and has been given the all clear as far as health goes by the doctor. So far, our little girl has mommy completely baffled. She is a good sleeper but her patterns are unpredictable, one day she will sleep all day long and the next day she won't sleep at all. Other than that, we too have adjusted to having a baby in the house again and big brother just loves her as much as mom and dad.
Look at that angelic face.... who wouldn't love her?
And big brother still finds time to have some fun!
And we have even made trips to the farm park and the zoo!
And while mommy is in the house trying to do "tummy time" the boys are outside catching baby deer.
8 weeks later we are doing well and are complete as a family of four!
