I figure we have a thread about allmost everything else why not one for how well or not well the older siblings are adjusting to the new baby.
my daughter kaelyn who is 26 months older then the new baby has been so great. We have had a few minor act ups when she wants attention but nothing more then say jumping on the couch or banging a toy on the sliding glass door. Other then that she is doing amazingly well with herself, she wakes up and runs right to the baby and even wants sister to be involved in story time before bed, she wants to hold her ALL THE TIME, almost to much and has to touch her and kiss her if she can reach. She is ok with other people holding the baby instead of her but wont leave the baby's side if she isnt with us. She sings to her sister, dont cry baby and our family good night song. She loves to help me when im nursing by getting me pillows or the remote to the tv. She went for daddy time the other day and insisted that baby sister had to come to, she wasent happy leaving the baby at home with mommy
