eme and her brother

I was worried about how Eme would do with her brother. I am in total shock at how she has been. When she came to the hospital to meet her brother, it went okay.... but she wanted me to get out of bed and go bye bye with her. And since I couldn't she had a HUGE screaming fit. Saturdy after being released from the hospital...we went to pick her up from our friends house. She ran to the door with open arms yelling "mommy, daddy, baby!". As soon as we got home she was kneeled in front of the car seat giving her brother a kiss. When daddy carried the carseat in, Eme held on to it too and helped carry it. Instead of going to let the dogs out with daddy like she always does she wouldn't leave her brothers side. We let her hold him....she was so careful with him and didn't want to let him go. Yesterday he was crying and she had heard him fart .....on her own she went and got.the diaper bag, which by the way had her stuff in it too. She pulls out his cloths, her clothes, her diapers.... finds his diaper. Opens up his diaper, lays it on the floor and then opens her arms to take the baby to change him. Then, shes holding him and he starts crying. She pulls the front of her shirt down to feed him. LOL I haven't seen any jealousy in the last day and a half and no acting out more than usual. I just think its so cute how she acts like his mother.

Very sweet! I'm glad she's loving her brother so much! We had a really similar experience with Cam. He adores his baby sister and is always trying to carry her, rock her when she cries. He's even tried to nurse her as well. The sweetest the other day was when she was crying in her carseat when we'd just gotten home and he went to pick her up (Dh helped him) and we asked where he was taking her and he pointed to her bouncy seat, put her in there and started to rock her.
It's so much fun to watch them together!! Biggrin

When dh holds Kanen I will cuddle with Eme or play with her. Or when I am holding or feeding Kanen I will ask her if she wants to sit next to me. Or this morning I put Kanen in his bassinet when he was sleeping and Eme and I watched the fox and the hound together. When Kanen needs to be changed we ask Eme if she will get a wipe out for us. We ask her if she wants to hold her brother. But I have to tell you that dh has not been giving Eme hardly any attention and only to the baby so here I am trying to make up for him not spending time with her but to also want to spend time with the baby. I do feel like I don't get as much time with the baby which makes me sad but I don't know what else to do.

That's great that she is reacting so well to her baby brother. Sounds like you have a good system for keeping her involved.
