I have noticed jealous tendecies in my 2.5 year old. All normal, I'm sure. She's quick to snatch a toy from my 7 month old's hand even if the toy belongs to my 7 month old, and now she's at the age where if you take something from her she'll cry. It's kinda funny in a way, watching the sibling rivalry already at play at 7 months, but at the same time I feel bad and I don't want it to turn into something huge later in life. Also, if my 2 year old is doing anything of interest to my 7 month old, she'll follow her around the house and my older one will either ignore her or yell at her to "go away!". I know I can't force acceptance of play on my older one, but she'll share toys with other kids and other adults, just not her little sister! I was an only child so I don't know how this stuff works. Any advice?
