they're doing a lot better. Marcus was acting out really bad and Jamesen was really whiny and clingy and needy. They're only just now (at 3 weeks) acting normal. Thank goodness because it was getting really rough!

Overall they've done well. They absolutely adore the twins! They love to hug them, kiss them, snuggle with them, and they're oddly interested in their bodily functions when we change their diapers. The only thing I've noticed is that DD suddenly isn't as independent as she used to be. I get a lot of "I can't do it" when I ask her to do things (like dress herself) that I know she can do. It's getting better though... most days.
My son has been a lot more independent. He's actually made himself breakfast almost every day. Plus he's been very helpful to me. He loves Zoey so much and always wants to hold, kiss, snuggle with her. Sometimes it's a little too much. Especially, when he touches her while she's sleeping!
They love their sister but I can tell they are acting out, mostly Sophia. Sophia pulls a lot of the same stuff that Eden pulls now (but these things are normal Eden behaviour) I hope it calms down soon because I don't like being the mean mommy who yells all the time and is always giving timeouts and having to drag them kicking and screaming to be put in them I seriously can't deal with it much longer!
No issues whatsoever with my oldest 3(they know the ropes) but my toddler(16 months) I'm having issues with. It seems she gets super clingy and needs me the most, right when I'm feeding Julian or trying to calm him down. She's very gentle with him though.
Josiah has been amazing since day 1. He's so happy to have a sister and a new responsibility as a big brother and we haven't had any problems with him. I'm so happy about that too because Janiah is a very demanding baby. She cries and fusses a lot and I don't think I could deal if Josiah was acting out.
Oh man...not so well I guess. She's doing great in the role of big sister. She adores him and helps me when she feels like it. But....she's acting out SO much! She's so defiant all of a sudden, contrary about everything, super whiny, super clingy. It's rough but I'm told this too shall pass!
It's been really rough... Jayden loves his little sister, almost too much though. He constantly wants to be close to her. He wants to lay down with her, hug her, kiss her, touch her. That's great and all, but he doesn't know his own strength and I'm afraid if I blink my eyes too often he is going to squish her head or something. I think most of all, he is just... for lack of better wording... annoying? Sometimes DH and I just want him to ignore her! I know that sounds so terrible and I don't mean to use that word in an insulting way. I love my son so much, but this has certainly been a huge adjustment. I am very anxious for Emma to be older so that she and Jayden can play together. He will love it when he can make her smile and laugh. He already gets excited when she makes funny noises because he thinks she is laughing at him. All will be well in time!
