I’m so excited to finally be able to link up to the fantastic Siblings linky! I didn’t quite get my act together for June or July as have been deep within the Newborn Haze, but I’m starting to see a very faint light at the end of the sleep deprived tunnel, so I’ve got a Siblings triple whammy for you!
The past eight weeks have sped by and life has been a mixture of so many emotions as we adjust to being a family of four. Parenting a Toddler and a Newborn at the same time is tough, especially with a baby who wants to be permanently latched on my boob… but we’ve muddled through!
I still don’t think Busby is entirely sold on the idea of a baby brother… We’ve had a fair amount of “I don’t like Indy!” and “I don’t want Indy!”, but after two and a half years of our undivided attention it must be such a change for her. She’s a bit more interested now he’s starting to smile and be more than an eating-pooping-sleeping machine, and she very much likes to “share” all the new toys he’s been gifted!
Indy on the other hand is already completely in awe of his big sister. Now he’s focussing, he watches her with intent, an expression seeming to say: “Who is this crazy, loud whirlwind who steals my toys off me and kisses my face…? She’s pretty cool.”
