My DD was doing pretty good up until the last few days! I think she has realized that the baby is not leaving and her life has changed for good. She doesn't direct her anger at the baby, but is actually very sweet and kind with him. It's toddler behavior times 10 though... Not listening, ignoring us, throwing HUGE tantrums over nothing, etc. I know that it is totally normal, DH is having a harder time with her behavior. He thinks she is "getting away with more than she should." She is directing most of this at DH, I think she blames him for doing the things with her that I normally do. Like he has stolen my time away, not the baby. It doesn't help that her schedule is so totally disrupted. Daddy is home from work, I'm home from work, Grandma isn't here to play with her (Grandma watches her while I work 20 hours a week). The whole routine is out of whack. We'll see how things go once we are home alone! She just had an hour long tantrum that ended in her crying to sleep in my arms : This is hard! How are the rest of the big brothers & sisters hanging in there?
