Cute Big Sister

October 11, 2011

This girl has had an interesting time of becoming a big sister. It is the same story told by every mother I have ever talked to, but it is so much more difficult when it is my life and my kids! (Isn't that how it always feels!) Miss E loves her baby sister so very much, but has had a hard adjustment when it comes to sharing her mama and daddy. She has been acting out and has become so defiant we aren't quite sure what to do sometimes. Her listening "skills" have become nearly nonexistent. Our great sleeper has turned into a nervous Nelly and is up in the middle of the night almost every night. She sometimes tries to love her little sister "to death," with squeezes and loves that would bring a grown man to tears. We try to calm our frustration by (constantly) reminding each other that "this is just a phase" and that "her world has been rocked," but it is still hard! Nevertheless, there are still times each day when E reminds us how much she loves little sis and that she is going to be a fiercely protective and FUN big sister!!! She loves to share her toys and blankie with the little miss and jabbers with her all day long. We love our girls more than words can say and look forward to seeing the relationship that they build!
PS: Thanks to Aunt Mari and girls for the super cute outfit! She seems bigger and bigger each day!
PPS: Mom, notice the "bobbers" in her hair. Oh those take me back!
