My son had just turned 4 when my daughter was born and they are very close. My daughter loves her big brother, and he loves his little sister although now that she's two and he's 6 he is starting to want his own space but they still play very well together most days.

My son was very involved in my pregnancy he went to all the doctors appointments with my husband and I. He helped pick out the decor for his sisters room and he even chose the name. My son never felt left out because my husband and I spent time alone with him each day. When friends and family came to visit they always played with him first before the baby. The only issue we had was that he isn't a solid sleeper so the early months were a bit rough on him waking everytime his sister did even thought there rooms were at the opposite ends of the hall.
