One of the most popular questions about our new family of 4 is... "How's Coen?" Basically implying that he should have this jealousy phase or rebellion phase that will just be horrible.
Well, I'm happy to say that we haven't really experienced this.
We have had only a few moments where he would like to sit with me and I'm nursing E. That gets a little tricky, but outside of that, he loves his baby sister.
His eating habits haven't changed, his sleeping habits have been on point, and his attitude has been the same too. It's actually refreshing that my fun, hilarious, excited baby boy still that same boy as he was before Emie arrived.
So, needless to say, our transition period was null.
Coen is a sweet big brother too... You should here him say her name, or look for her when she's not in the room, or if she's crying and he can't find her, or when she's eating and how attentive he is, or the way he gives her kisses... sometimes over and over again. In his world, it's obvious that he thinks that having a baby sister is completely normal and for that, we are grateful.
We're excited to continue to watch their relationship/friendship unfold!
