I was very worried that Emma might be jealous of Henry, upset that she was no longer the center of attention. This has, thankfully, turned out not to be the case. In fact, she absolutely adores him and has taken to calling him “my Henry” all the time. (He seems to dig her, too.)
“I want to hug my Henry.”
“Oooh! My Henry is sleeping!”
“My Henry has a wet, wet diaper.”
You’ll notice in the pictures I posted that she can’t get enough. To be sure, there are moments of frustration (like when Henry is wailing at the top of his lungs and Emma says “Go away, my Henry!”) but they’re generally few and far between.
She’s also given him a nickname, “Hendry Dendry”. It just absolutely cracks me up that a soon-to-be 3 year old is giving her 2 month old brother a nickname.
