He Thinks He’s His Brother

By  | 

Have you ever noticed how a baby thinks he/she is the only one you’ve ever had in your life? I’ve noticed that whenever we look at old photo albums of Little A’s big brother, (when Big Bro was a baby) he points at each one and says, “Me.” Even when I correct him he gets very serious and argues it. He thinks He s His Brother brothereyes 300x225 jpg

This has made me wonder if babies don’t have some type of thing where they think they are the only ones. I mean obviously they learn there are others out there, but NOT others in your home. Any picture of a younger child is a picture of them, any picture of a sibling that doesn’t look like they do now is not them. Could this be because they haven’t seen a sibling’s looks change? Possibly. Even if you have a small chronicalogical (sp) album of just the baby and let him/her flip through it they will not believe.

The above picture is Little A looking at SoccerBoy’s picture album. He got really into it and took over an hour looking at the pictures.
