"Just like that one scary Transformer does..."

When I had Fynn, Ewan was so completely awesome.  Other than a little nail-biting in the beginning, he never showed any ill-adjustment or jealousy at all.  He loved him from the moment he saw him and has ever since.  I took that for granted, I think, and with this baby, I've mostly worried about how Fynn is going to take it.  He'll only be 22 months old when Corgan is born (whereas Ewan was almost three at Fynn's debut) and he's just a much more jealous type than Ewan ever was.  

But I suppose now that Ewan is older, he understands more and I might have a little more to deal with than I had anticipated.  Today, Ewan said, "When our new baby is here, I don't think I'm going to like him very much."  I asked him why, and he told me he wanted things to stay just as they are, "...with Fynn, and you and Daddy.  Fynn's a great brother."  I told him Corgan would be a great brother, too, and I told Ewan what a great brother he himself is.  

There were a few moments of silence, and then he said something that was extremely difficult not to laugh at, and I absolutely could not let myself laugh, because this was obviously a very important discussion.  So I was barely able to hold it in when he said, "It's just that... some babies make my teeth chatter."

That. Is. Hilarious.

I'd love to see one of the babies that make his teeth chatter! Surely little Corgan won't be one of them. :)

He's so cute! There are definitely some deep thoughts going on in that noggin of his!
He is going to fall so desperately in love with Corgain, and so will Fynn! Three brothers! What an amazing sight that will be!

OK, now that is funny, and the best part is, maybe I have SEEN his teeth chatter! LOL! And I have to say I am so glad you are blogging again, I love the way you share stories!

Me too, Ewan! They're breakable little things!

I worry about David being jealous too with our next one. I think it's because he's so used to being the baby. I don't think he'll appreciate giving up that position.
