So...I know many of us were worried about how our first children were going to react to their first sibling. How is it going for everyone?
I have to say... I'm feeling like I'm letting down my DD. I was just saying to DH tonight that I really have to make a point of interacting with her more intentionally, instead of just to keep her brother safe from her. I'm sad for how our relationship has changed... but things are kind of crazy around here with lots of different stuff going on, so I basically never get to put the baby down, because DH is really busy trying to get a bunch of stuff done around the house. So I just always have the baby.
DD herself is doing ok- she likes her brother, and talks about him, or asks where he is if she doesn't know. She's still way too rough with him, and sometimes I have to be really careful. She gets pissed at him if he pops off while nursing and tries to force him back on the boob- yesterday she pushed his head with a hand full of Legos- took a good layer of cradle cap right off him. She just doesn't get the gentle thing AT ALL.
So yeah, we're doing ok...but, I def feel like I have to try harder to make the whole situation better.
How are the rest of you doing??
