Big Brother

Ian, though he has had increased meltdowns, is doing a great job with Eva. He loves to hold her and helps me by telling me when she is hungry. I make sure to point out to him that Eva can't have chocolate or meat or cheddar bunnies or even cow's milk, only mama's milk. He has been very sympathetic as a result (chocolate deprivation is a terrible thing in his mind) and tries to make sure she gets enough milk.

Today we went to my mother-in-law's house to introduce Eva to my husband's relatives. Ian did not like the relatives (except my mother-in-law) holding Eva. He got very upset and said, "Give her to mama!"

As we were getting ready to go, my mother-in-law was holding her and Ian went to take her and said,"We're gonna take her now."

Nice to know he likes her and feels she belongs to us!

I think that's a very good sign! Cute too! :) Brian was very possessive of his little sister right from the start.. after she was born he came to visit and was angry when I couldn't come home... so he got Honor's carseat and wanted to take his sister home without me! We never had any problems with jealously or sibling rivalry and I credit it to his "that's MY baby sister" attitude.

That's so cute. He's a good big brother already...
