Olivia is probably hearing this in her dreams:

Olivia, no!
Please be gentle.
Olivia, that's too rough!
OK, that's enough kisses.
Please don't jump on the couch when your brother is right there.
Don't poke him. Please don't poke him.

I feel so badly. She loves him to pieces, but she is rough and tumble with him already. It's hard not to speak harshly when I see all of her 30+ pounds come down mere inches from his punkin' head. All in all, she's doing well, but she has a lot of pressure on her right adjust, to be a "good big sister," to be patient, to be gentle. Everyone has been trying to get her to eat new foods, to use the potty...sometimes it's hard for me to watch her process all the changes.

Bless her heart. It will get easier, I'm sure. :) She's a fantastic big sister, I know it.

Oh! It always seems so hard on the big sister/brother. She will get through this much easier then you would think. Izzy was only 2 when Alex was born and we went through a LOT of this.

Hang in there!

As the oldest sibling...she is going to pound on him for the rest of his life.
