Little Baby Peter has been cuddled and loved on by all of us since he came to live with us last September. He was so very sick that he needed that extra attention. We've had other little babies come and go but he has been spending every evening getting playtime with us after dinner. Even when we've had other babies stay with us he was pretty young, and they were sick so he didn't pay them much attention.
That has all changed now since I came back and began including baby Lizzie into our evening family time. I try to have special time with all the babies each day since I've read that babies need to bond to someone in their first year to get a good emotional start in life. By having extra cuddles and playtime in the evening I feel that they are getting that.
But Peter's been feeling a little threatened now that Lizzie is sharing his space. There are plenty of arms ready to hold him and since Lizzie falls asleep earlier than he, he gets a lot of attention.
But he is still not happy with this little intruder.
Here he had just ripped Lizzie's pacifier out of her mouth and is trying to charm me with his sweet, baby face. "But I'm so cute. Don't be angry."
Sorry, Baby Peter, Lizzie is part of our family too.
