Toddlers and Babies

Watching my two grandchildren get along in play today was wonderful! Jude got to show off his "look what I can do" skills, while Katie cheered him on with her cooing and kicking! Having two years between them helped a sharing issues! It was nice to see Jude's gentle and kind attitude towards the baby.  Hoping he feels the same when his new baby brother arrives in 2012!
Happy babysitting,
Bubbie, Jude and Katie, too!
P.S. Any helpful hints on preparing children for a new baby in the home?

  1. It is so awesome to know that I am not the only one out there with amazing Grandparents. All of your grandchildren will learn so much from you, just like I have from mine! You are and always will be one of the most important things in their lives.

  2. Thanks so much for your kind words. That made my day! Your grandparents are very lucky to have you as their granddaughter. It feels great to be recognized and appreciated. Ooh...I could give you such a hug!!!

  3. Congratulations on having a new grandbaby in the works! I haven't had a new one in seven years, and I'm about ready for one. I do have some suggestions about avoiding sibling rivalry, and my suggestions are aimed for grandparents as well as parents.

  4. Thanks so much for mentioning your link concerning sibling rivalry. Hope you don't mind that I added it to my links on the topic. (It was a helpful read!) I'll be passing it around to all the parents and grandparents I know who are struggling w/this issue.
