I was asked a few times, while pregnant with my son, if I was concerned about the age gap between my daughter and the baby. There is almost 8 years between the two of them. I was nervous about the fact my daughter had been an only child for so long. I wasn’t sure how she would handle having to share the attention once the new baby made his appearance.
Going from a family of three to a family of four, has of course, been an adjustment for everyone. A little less sleep and a whole lot more love has taken over our home. Our daughter loves her little brother. The fact she’s older has allowed her to help out in ways she wouldn’t be able to if they were closer in age.
I plan on taking advantage of the fact they are both still ok with me taking a million pictures of them. I am sure in a few years I will start to hear objections! Until then I will continue to capture their cuteness!
