We were a little concern about how Malcolm will react to having a little brother around
He was sure that little brother will be noisy as baby cries alot
And to mentally prepare him, we have been trying to feed him all the good things about being a big brother
Beside talking and explaining to him, we turned to books and here are 2 books that we read to him regularly
Either our effort has been paid off or our worries were unfounded
Malcolm’s affection towards his little brother really took us by surprise
He hugs him
He carries him
He cuddles him
He consoles him with his ‘It’s ok, it’s ok’ whenever he cries
And he even consoles me !
‘He is a baby, OF COURSE he will cry!’
It’s such a relief to see him being so receptive towards his baby brother
and we certainly hope it is not because it is still a novelty.
