My kids are 17, 16, and 2. The older kids are old hat at the big brother to a newborn thing so they're doing fine. They have Laila and my 2 yr old and their dad's 5 and 3 yr olds with a newbie coming any day now. My two year is pretty much her normal self. She's a handful so nothing new. She loves the baby and is doing her best to be gentle. She does make me nervous playing around the baby sometimes.

Sounds like some good adjusters!

My daughter is 6 and great. My son turned two the day before she was born and he is a terror. He loves her but hates sharing me.

My 20 month old insists on taking baby out of the rock n play all by herself while we're not looking (she's quite stealthy) and when I don't hear the normal noises, I'll look and there she is with baby plopped on her lap, head bopping around. TOTAL FREAKED OUT MAMA!! She LOVES babies, but heck, she can't keep her hands off of her and she doesn't understand that she can't pick her up and just plop her on the floor like her dollies. AAAK!

The other 2 (3y and 6) are wonderful, loving and yes, a bit in her face but understand "no"

6 & 3. They love her! My 6yo loves to help in every way possible. My 3yo holds her for like 2 seconds and is done but will walk by and lean in to kiss her all throughout the day.

20 & 18 and absolutely love their baby brother. Poor James has three mommies he will either be spoiled or won't get away with anything. I am leaning towards totally spoiled!

My 18 month old seems to regard her as a toy more than a little person. But he does like to "help" mama. He helps change her and gets me things. But he's been obsessed with her pacifier lately. He stopped using one at 6 mos (of his own free will), but he keeps taking hers and trying to put it in his mouth >_> That and he likes to try to "feed" her toys... *sigh*

DD is doing the same with the pacis. She also stopped taking hers at 6 months. She wants to be a baby, too.

My almost two year old loves him so much likes to give him toys and try to carry him around as well. My almost 3 year old loves holding him and wants to help with everything. And my almost 11 year old loves him but would rather give his attention to his kindle.

Here's a picture of my almost two year old holding him- I think it gives a pretty good picture of how things look in my house most of the time! : )

My DS likes to act like the baby, too! Just yesterday I had her on the floor in her boppy, and he was trying to lay in it with her o.o So I offered him the other boppy and he laid in it like a baby lol!
