Sylvia loves her new sister. She is constantly wanting to give her hugs and kisses, and when she see’s her first thing in the morning she yells, “Mimi!!!!”. She’s actually woken up calling for her a couple times. It’s very sweet, and I can already tell they will be very close.
We are working (a lot) on gentleness. At 18 months, I’m not sure ‘gentleness’ has even made it into her little brain yet. But it’s pretty common for a little pat to turn into a slap, or a hug to turn into a headbutt. But, as long as Naomi survives her sister these first few weeks, I think we’ll be ok.
…And a little Daddy love too.
