First and last

My sister is the baby of the family. My brother-in-law, similarly placed as the last child. Both have mentioned that there are more pictures of the older siblings than themselves. 

It got my husband and me thinking about where that places our kids. When you have multiples you're skipping steps. First and last? Sure, but it's by minutes instead of years. But there is a weird similarity that can happen. We realized we have all the issues of first time parents, but coupled with the logistics of three kids. The baby of the family often realizes that they are missing the full attention of the parents our triplets get that from the beginning. We can't just gaze adoringly at one baby or toddler because usually someone else is in need of some kind of attention. Diapers, stealing, general malaise you get the idea.
