There are not many words to describe how life-changing it is to welcome a new member into the family. Our equilibrium as a family unit has been radically shifted as we make space in our hearts and house for baby Jethro. My whole being is full of love for this little boy, so precious and utterly dependent on me. My hormones are on a roller-coaster ride and I have to fight through the emotional ups and downs of this second journey into motherhood. 

Words. They fail to convey my joy, love, exhaustion, fear. 

Levi is dealing well with his new role as a big brother. Curiosity, tender hugs and kisses mixed with a dose of suspicion mark his daily interactions with Jethro. Levi is handling the stress that comes with change with his own version of the Zen sandbox. 

Who needs Zen when you can crash, bang and build together your own construction site for therapeutic purposes?
