As someone told me before I had James - you are going to have another little person, not another Zach. But how do you keep them separate, especially before James has his own personality that is shown? I am working on it...
But since we are speaking of Zach, I will continue. He is doing pretty well adjusting to his little brother. He runs to see him each morning and each day after school. We completely do NOT trust him in the slightest, but so far he has not shown any real aggression towards James. Speaking as someone who tried on multiple occasions to suffocate her sister - I am sure this is just the calm before the storm.
But for now he likes to be close to James and to have James participate in things with him. Such as when he decided to crawl underneath James' bed and "work" on his bassinet. James slept through the loud, loud drilling on the bottom of his bed. One of the reasons I like this bed (Thank you Mimi!) is that it is too tall for Zach to reach inside. Well, unless Zach gets his stool, which of course I did not think of until he did.
Working, working, drilling, hammering
Precious baby did not even stir. This will be his life for good and for bad.
He will not know a time when someone was not trying to "fix" his bed
or his pacifier or his blanket.
