Taryn is a little less than thrilled about her new baby brother. She’s adjusting. Slowly. She takes baby steps every day. I think more than anything it scares her when he cries. Two things she will do, give him a quick kiss on the head every now and then and tickle his feet. Overall though, she’s not that impressed just yet.
So tonight when I asked her if she wanted to hold him and she said yes, I was a little surprised. Everyone in the house came running and gathered around to see and praise her. She did really well, and I think these images capture her true feelings…..
This is how we wish she would feel about her new baby brother (and she does about 1% of the time):
And reality (the other 99% of the time):
LOL! I know she’ll adjust and come around, but boy has she been a challenging toddler mess the last few days. I’ve had to remind myself many times that the adjustment is temporary….she will come around. Eventually.
