  • LOL-- I'd say he's perfect to be a big brother!! Seriously, you don't have a thing to be worried about. Your kid sounds normal, and most kids have a love/hate relationship with their siblings.

  • Sounds normal for his age - I'd not worry. start preparing him now for a sibling. Include in him the preparation process. My son was 27 months old when DD was born. He picked out the paint for her room (out of three choices we had narrowed it down to before hand.) He "helped" put together the crib. We took him to the store and let him pick out a special gift for his sister before she arrived. We also picked up a special gift FROM her to him and a stash of small toys to give him when someone brought or sent baby something but not big brother. When Meg was born, we made time for 1 on 1 activities with big brother. Today they are nearly 9 and 6 1/2. They can fight and get on each other's last nerve, but mostly they are the best of friends. They spend TONS of time just playing together and being buddies. They've been like that from the get go.
