Just when I thought things might never get better
that he would never find peace with her
never accept her presence in our home
never accept his role
never like her, let alone love her
he's coming around...
taking interest in her
enjoying making her laugh or smile
calling out to her
giving her a nickname "sissy-dirl" - which means "sissy-girl"
even patting her on the back, comforting her, and notifying me when he hears her crying in bed "mama, sissy-dirl rying and rying"
even kissing her goodnight at bedtime
saying "bye sissy, see ya" when she goes down for a nap
and sharing his toys
I do catch him in the occasional aggressive or defensive posture around her
and he's been known to lash out at her more than a few times - thankfully without any real consequence to her
but I think he's coming around...
Just when I thought he didn't know what a good thing he has in her...
He's coming around...
