My two year old has been very jealous of the baby since she came home. She kind of hugs her but mostly just wants to squeeze her. She always tells people to put the baby down, will try to rip her from your hands and a couple weeks ago hit the baby and said "I don't like her"

Well, this week Clara smiled at Esme and it is like Esme is a new girl now. She LOVES Clara and tells everyone "Baby sister is so pretty" "I love Baby Sister" and most importantly to her "Baby sister loves me!"

So maybe the jealousy I was worried about, that Esme wasn't the baby anymore was the wrong jealousy. Maybe she was jealous the baby seemed, in Esme's eyes, to love us more than she loved Esme.

Kids are fascinating...

I'm glad it's getting better. My almost 2 yr old is a mommas boy. He is very attached to me. He doesn't like it when he wants my attention and I have to care for the twins. I try to include him in helping out with the babies so he feels a part of things. I say something nice to him when I see him being nice to them, so he wants to be nice again.

Thats wonderful! My kids had the same issue. They were jealous of mommy having the baby and not them. My 2 year old thinks her baby brother is toy. She keeps picking him up and taking off with him to play.
