A Ray of Hope???

Ok, so I'm guessing we underestimated how much Noah can understand at his age. We are having fits out of him. He doesn't seem to like having a little brother. He loves to say Yeah. So we ask him, do you love mommy, he says, Yeah. Do you love daddy, we ask...the answer the same, yeah. Do you love Andrew, SILENCE...Do you love your little brother, SILENCE. So we continue to ask him other questions with the same Yeah answer. Then again, do you love Andrew, again SILENCE! In the few days Andrew has been home, he has jumped on him, hit him in the head with a bottle, etc etc etc. He has been grouchy every day. Pitches more fits than ever. He is just being a little uncontrollable. He steals Andrews pacifiers, bottles, which we kind of expected that to happen.

Then this morning, a little ray of hope. We asked him to give HIS little brother some good sugar. He leaned over and kissed him. So maybe there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Until then, we are trying to show him more love and understanding than ever. Any suggestions would be welcome.

Here is wishing you all a Happy New Year. Please pray for us as we go through this adjustment.
Until then, enjoy the pictures.


Terrie, Brandon, Noah & Andrew

I am sure it will get better. He just has to get use to the idea of sharing your attention.
