And baby makes.. a jealous toddler.

I knew it was inevitable. Our 21 month old is jealous of our newborn. It hasnt been as awful as it probably could be but its frustrating nonetheless. Hes had one meltdown and a few whiney spells. I have no clue how to deal with it other than giving him as much extra lovins as I can and trying to spend as much one on one time with him as I can but I see it getting worse before it gets better, and thats a scary thought. He has shown some random affection for her though but its few and far between..


  1. oh honey.i am right there with you. i have a three year old and a 5 month old. it's normal from what all my more experienced friends tell me. so try not to sweat it. and i think you are right on target for spending special time with the oldest whenever possible.
    thanks for joining my blog!

  2. I hold firm that they should all come with instruction manuals.

  3. It's a tricky age but you can do it. I have a 3 year old and a 21 month old. They are 23 months apart so I know where you are coming from. It gets easier with time , I promise.
