i think my family might have questioned my parenting abilities based upon the way i handled raider. he was pretty spoiled and got away with anything. most of their "checking in" questions include "so how is raider handling the new addition?" not gonna lie, it's been an adjustment, but we're trying our best to make sure he doesn't feel the need to pull a lady and run away to make a new best friend.
raider is showing his slow growing approval by crashing my late-night slumber parties with baby girl. he loves snuggling up right next to us on the couch. sometimes he accidently sits on baby girls face, but we're working on that....
he is definitely still my best buddy, we're just learning to share time with our newest addition. i have a pretty good feeling about their future relationship. i even caught raider giving baby girl her first kiss the other morning. they're best buddies in the making, I just know it.
