I think it's so cute how interested my 4 year old nephew is in the baby. Over the weekend he asked me if I could push him on the swing with the baby inside me. He asked me how the baby is going to come out of there to which I answered, "The doctor cut you out of your mom's belly and your grandma pulled you out." I don't think he's quite ready to hear how it really works yet. He made a really loud noise and asked me if it scared the baby. It was really cold in my mom and dad's house on Sunday (they have a turbo air conditioner) so he asked me if the baby was warm enough in there and pointed to my belly. We were playing on the floor and I had to change position because my back was starting to hurt and he asked if the baby was uncomfortable and when I said, "No, the baby's sleeping right now" he told me that I'd better lay down then. So we both layed down on the floor and started naming all the animals we could think of in the catagories that he picked, animals in the zoo, animals in the forest, animals in the ocean, etc.
I just love it. He is so excited about this baby. He even told his mom he's a good big brother even though he's not a big brother yet just a big cousin. My sister is worried about the age difference between her kids with Hayden being 4 already. I think it will be fine because he's so ready to help.
What is the best age difference between children?
