Isaac and Corinna

Isaac is very gentle with his new sister and he asks to hold her periodically. He'll sit down, pat his lap and say "baby!" We waited a few days before letting him hold her as a precaution since he'd had a tummy virus. He also likes to get diapers and blankets for her.

That's the good news. The bad news is he seems to be unsure of his place in the family and has become a grumpy and clingy 2 year old. He is at times contrary for contrary's sake. Before he was a picky eater, but now it is nearly impossible to feed him. Isaac has also started the whole "revenge pee" trick. We went through this with Matthew, but not nearly to the degree Isaac has taken it. Yesterday he didn't make it to the bathroom at all and I was about ready to sell him to the circus at the end of the day.

We're hoping that over time and with lots of love he will adjust and return to his normal, happy pumpkin self.
