When she goes up to Caleb she wants to rock his chair so hard, she thinks it's funny, then she pokes him in the head and says behbee. I put her in my lap and I stroke her hand soft and say "gently!!" over and over. I don't know if it's working but it's what came to me! Were your girls this way?
I do the same thing with Lina with the gentle and the soft touch. She was pretty rough with all of us for about a month or so. The past 2 weeks or so she has been much better, and now when we say soft or gentle she will rub you, like my leg or arm or even my hair. They get it, it just takes awhile for them to make sense of it.
Miranda try taking Pea's hand and rubbing it on Calelb's leg or arm and saying soft and gentle. She will get it eventually. Then she will always want to be rubbing him, lol. That's if you don't mind it I guess.
Lina learned how to be nice and gentle to the dog and cat. Now they don't mind being around her. Hopefully with the new baby coming in a few weeks she will be the same way.
