  • I honestly wouldn't worry about your sister right now. Seems like from your situation that everyone is probably worried about your new child. Does sound like a little bit of jealousy is going on, new babies are just to fun to resist though. Don't worry, this will all pass and blow over with time.

  • I would feel that she needs to grow up. My sister in law and I were pregnant at the same time. She was due in March with twins and I was due in April. I ended up delivering in December, two months before her. She was too concerned about her babies to worry about the attention my daughter was getting. When the twins came along, there was enough love to go around for everyone. You should forget about your sister's immature behavior and focus all your positive energy on your little one in the NICU.

  • Yeah its been hard for me having my baby in the NICU. All Ive been thinking about is my baby. I really dont have any problems with my sister or hers. I think her baby is adorable and I have pictures of him on my myspace..

  • Tell her to grow up and get over it. She already had the first grandkid!

  • Remember too that her hormones are still crazy. She is probably stressed and tired. She will probably look back when she is a little more sane and realize how silly she is acting but right now she just can't think rationally. Try not to worry about it. You have enough to deal with right now.

  • My sister told my parents that my baby would be taking the place in their hearts of her 6 children, my daughter is 4 she hasn't spoken to me since she was born has not even actually seen her. No biggie!

  • unless you heard it from her mouth, it's heresay.
    but even if she did admit it, let it go.
    she will get over it. this is life.
