I wanted to update to say that dd2 arrived 3 weeks early on 10/24 and that we named her Rowan. Here is a picture.

Darcy has been having i'm guessing jealousy issues and has been really clingy and has had a lot of fits lately. Is that normal and if so how long did that last with your child? Also is there anything I can do to help her? Sometimes she really good about things but then there will be nights like yesterday where she gets so angry about everything.

Congratulations she is gorgeous! how much did she weigh?

Fits? do you mean tantrums by that? its hard at first for them to adjust but it will pass within time, until then try and give Darcy one on one time when you can and reassure her she is still special and you love her very much

My son was 14 months when my twins were born. Just make sure Darcy gets lots of love and snuggles and a decent amount of 1 on 1 time. Your li'l girl is gorgeous TFS the pics!

Congrats!!! Don't worry, it WILL pass. Just lots of love and snuggles and trying to overlook the negative behavior as much as possible. The good news is, well at least for me, the 2nd child never gets jealous of the 3rd because they are already used to having a sibling around.

Is baby Aubrey Alana or Jacob Robert?!

My DD had a lot of jealousy issues when DS was born, she was 2 and half though. We had to keep her away from him as much as possible because she was really mean and would try to pull on his arms, poke his face etc. We just tried to make sure she had as much one on one time with her father and myself as much as we could. She eventually got over it and now its just normal sibling rivalry.
