Emma is looking forward to the arrival of her baby brother. Sort of. When her crib was moved into his room and replaced by the bunk bed, she was excited. But later she told her mother she wanted grampa to come back with the big boxes the bunk bed had come in and take it away.
She often plays with a little boy in the neighborhood who has a baby brother, eighteen months old. Emma loves that little brother. She hugs him and kisses him, she likes to take care of him and protect him. Three weeks ago she started squeezing his head!
So Emma has mixed feelings about a baby brother, though, as her mom says, she likes the "concept."
We'll see. We'll know shortly!
