For the past 2 days the first thing Miles says when he wakes up in the morning is "Oh no, where'd baby sister go."
Somebody loves his new sister!!
I think that is do LARGELY to the fact that my mom is staying with us. If I'm feeding Natalie and Miles needs the potty - my mom can take him. If I'm breastfeeding and he needs attention, my mom is always there to read to him, take him outside or fix him a snack. Right now his Nana is his favorite. Which is totally understandable, and I love that he is getting to know her and loves her so much!
And thankfully, I think because he has her full attention, he is loving on his sister even more than he normally might. He loves to kiss her and rub her head. He give me her paci if he sees it anywhere. He asks for her when he remembers that she's supposed to be here.
We took my sister to Chuy's on Thursday when she was in town for a day. When we got there and sat down Miles looked all around and said "baby sister, oh no. Where's baby sister?"
He does love to sit in her car seat. And he tends to follow whoever is holding the baby around to compete for attention. He asks us to put her down sometimes, but not often. We try to comply if we can. I just want him to know that he's still just as important.
Currently we are all sleeping in the same bed together. Shhh... don't tell. But I absolutely LOVE it. I'm not sure how long it can last, but I love waking up in the morning and seeing my whole family snoozing together.
Last night they both fell asleep downstairs and I let them cuddle for a bit.
I know this might not last and we'll have our ups and downs, but I love that we are off to a good start!
