No Two Babies!
September 23, 2011 § 4 Comments
Yesterday, I told you I’ve decided to start a little series to track the progress we’re making towards convincing Hiram that a new little brother is actually really awesome. I guess in order to get you to buy-in to this series it might help to tell you about how we came to realize we had this problem in the first place.
Here are a few of the most poignant examples:
- The first time we tried to tell Hiram he was going to have a baby brother he said, “No! No two babies!!”
- The second time we tried to tell Hiram he was going to have a baby brother, he said, “No way!”
- When we asked Hiram what he thought we should name his baby brother, he said, “No name my baby brother!”
Hiram reinforces this sentiment with his actions. For example, ever since I’ve started to show, Hiram wants nothing to do with me. He doesn’t want to sit by me at dinner, he doesn’t want me to tuck him into bed and he won’t let me read him any stories.
When I try to take him out of his car seat, he says, “Daddy do it!” and pushes me away. He pushes me away…by my belly, people!
Sometimes, he also tries to punch me in the belly.
Is this Hiram being two? Or is this Hiram being anti-two-babies?
