When Hayden is telling Layla something he loves to get right In her face. He will lower himself to her level and inform her things like “this is my toy Layla” or “it’s my turn not yours”. He really likes to rub it in – how does Layla react to this?… she just pushes him or bites him! Then he will just fall down like he has been hit by a sniper and start crying and Layla just gets on with her business.

It’s funny watching them grow up together. I am pretty sure they like each other but they also love to wind each other up!


Hey, Jealousy July 25, 2011

I’m sure we’ve mentioned before that Hayden gets jealous of Layla pretty easily, particularly when it comes to Daddy time. He also immediately becomes interested in pretty much any toy she has taken an interest in. The girl stands up for herself though, and from the time she has been old enough to be interested in a toy, Hayden has been taking that toy away from her, and she has sidled up to him and bitten him! This has been going on for weeks, and I have no idea where she even came up with biting. I would love to blame it on day care (that is where Hayden learned it when he was a toddler), but when she started doing it the other babies in her room were too little to even be getting around, much less biting.  She does get in trouble when she bites, and now Hayden is known for taking a toy from her and then putting his hand right in front of her mouth to try to make her bite him so she will get in trouble!

So anyway, back to the jealousy front… Layla has now become jealous as well!  She will cry if I hold Hayden or have him on my lap, and she will scoot right on over to us and even tried to bite me once.  Apparently our kids feel a definite ownership over me and John currently: Hayden thinks John is his and Layla thinks I am hers.  We do what we can to try to get them used to the fact that we are both their parents, and most of the time there is harmony, but the green eyed monster rears its head often enough to make it noteworthy!


Biting March 15, 2008

Hayden has been into biting my jaw again lately.  He did this in his first couple of months,  but he hadn’t done it for a while.  Back then he was trying to nurse on my jawline.  I’m not sure if that is what he is trying to do now, but he uses his teeth a lot when he does it.  It’s funny, but I really have to keep him from doing it now because the biting doesn’t feel very good!
