in preparation for the upcoming arrival of baby#2, nana sue smartly bought Scarlett her first baby doll. i'm verrrry nervous about how Scarlett will react to baby#2. she quickly gets anxious and jealous when david or i hold another newborn. as in she cries, screams, pushes the baby out of the way and situates herself on our laps instead. we're also trying to practice being "gentle" and "nice" to babies with Scarlett, because, well, we need a lot of practice in that department!
I know there is a sweet girl inside who can and will love the new babe, but i'm fearing the worst at the moment (ugh). here is a vid nana sue captured of Scarlett kissing her new baby doll though, so i'm hopeful for the best (fingers crossed).
for those of you with more than one child, advice to ease jealousy and teach being "nice" to the new addition are very very welcome. leave a comment below with suggestions please!!
