Usually, when one of the boys is going through a rough patch or just needs me more, the other seems to 'get it' and doesn't 'interfere' so to speak. He'll let his brother get the hugs, kisses and loving he needs until he feels better or is over the rough patch. They both do this for each other (and for me, because frankly, if they both needed me at the same time, I'd be nuts by now! lol).
Lately, however, it seems like they BOTH want me and want me NOW! When William gets cranky and whiney, he wants to be picked up. Lately, as soon as John sees this, HE wants to be picked up, too! They just weigh too much for me to handle both of them at once.
Ugh, I think I just need to vent a little. They're both walking now and are just seemingly underfoot a lot and it's making me nuts to have them hanging on my legs all the time.
Can someone just tell me it's a phase and we'll work through it? I love hugging, kissing and loving on my babies, but sometimes it just seems like there are so many of them I've run out of room on my lap!
