As you may have noticed from the absence of any recent blog post our "New Student" has arrived (baby boy)! My toddler (22 months) has done very well adjusting to this change. We have been encouraging her positive behavior with verbal praise. Some things we have used are "you are a nice sister!" or "wow! you are a good helper." She is very proud of herself when she is a helper. She is very interested in the baby, giving him kisses or pointing to his eyes, nose, mouth, fingers, and toes.
We all have had to adjust to the night time cries. We tell our toddler that, "If you hear the baby cry at night it's OK, mama with help him, you stay asleep." I tell her this every night and I definitely feel it is helping!
I'm looking forward to begin blogging again, when the time is right so please check back in soon! I am so thankful for this new blessing and new student!!
