My heart immediately grew when Wallace came into the world. I think every mother worries if she could possibly love another tiny human as much as she does that first child. I know I did. When we had Wilson, I experienced a love I never knew existed. And now that we have Wallace, I feel that same love double time!
I pray that Wilson and Wallace will grow to be the best of friends and that God will use them in each other's lives in amazing ways. I pray that they will look out for one another, love one another, and forgive one another (because let's be honest - they will fight). I know they don't realize it now, but I truly believe that having a sibling so close in age is a gift from the Lord.
I wasn't sure I wanted Wilson to meet Wallace on Day 1 since I knew I would be having surgery, but I'm so glad he did. My parents picked him up from school around 3:30 or 4, and he came to the hospital. They fed him some pizza while he waited in the waiting room because clearly everybody big brother needs some fuel.
I love this picture of him holding my dad's hand.
Wilson was completely oblivious to the whole new baby thing.
I can hardly believe we are a family of FOUR!
He got about 4,000 presents from Baby Wallace, including tons of Paw Patrol trucks from Gigi.
I feel so blessed to have 2 precious sons.
Gramme and Papa with the 2 Massengill boys!
Gigi and Papa with 2 of their 2 grandsons!
The meeting of the bros went as well as could be expected. Wilson basically opened gifts and posed for a few pictures, never paying much attention to his little brother. I feel sure that with time they will both become aware of one another ; )
