My girls have now been siblings for three whole months!
I can’t help half wishing the time away. Sienna is growing too rapidly, which certainly makes me a little sad. But Ella is desperate for some company! Sienna isn’t much company to her at the moment. They can’t have a natter or play together, but I know we’re only a few months away from them at least being able to have a bit more interaction.
Ella has started to show a little jealousy towards her sister. She sometimes tries to push her away when she’s feeding, and suddenly wants me to pick her up if I’m carrying Sienna. I don’t mind as I think it’s really good for Ella to learn that she can’t always have everything her own way. The joy of a sibling is learning about sharing, even if at the moment that means sharing my affection rather than toys.
