update on big brudda
since i have been asked, caleb is adjusting to his new sister like we've pretty much expected him to. for the first couple of days, he did not want to come close to her but would look at her from afar & talk about her, but never to her.
luckily things have improved. for the past few nights he has asked when he goes to bed to have the baby come say goodnight to him & he gives her the sweetest, shy kisses. he still refuses to hold her but has touched her feet.
i tried a nap with all three of us on our bed yesterday and thought there would be more of a fight than there was from him. he still gets disturbed whenever she cries and will often put his hands over his ears while yelling, "TOO LOUD." which of course really helps calm us all down.
at least now though he is talking to her & when she cries he says in a soft, high-pitched voice, "it's okay baby, momma's coming."
slowly but surely we are becoming a family of 4.
just don't count on those sweet sibling-holding-the-new-baby pictures for a while.
