While my mom was here, (boo hoo, come back!) she took Noah out on a date for ice cream. If you can believe it, we have never given the kid ice cream so this was a first for him! (I don't really like ice cream, so that is why it is never around- I know you were wondering.) Anyways, we got some great pictures!
But before I show you them, I am wondering if anyone can give me some advice about how to make the older child feel special when they have a threatening new baby in the house and they aren't coping with it very well. Noah does not want anything to do with Suzy still. He's also acting out agressively--I guess in an attempt to get extra attention. He also fights against every rule we have or everything we ask him to do (go to bed, get a diaper change, etc).
I did take him on a date to McDonalds yesterday for some Mommy/Noah time. I honestly spend more time with him than I ever did before, but it seems like it is never enough. He's happy for the moment, but when Suzy cries or I feed her or do something that isn't entertaining Noah, he gets mad. And I get sad. So, please help me!
Sorry, I didn't mean for the post to be about that, but I guess it is on my mind. Here's the cute ice cream pics! :)
