The sisters meet!

October 7, 2009

On October 1st we came home from the hospital with Sylvie, and Ruby was waiting anxiously on the front porch. She immediately ran for my belly to touch the baby, and I told her the baby wasn’t in my belly anymore…that she was in the car with daddy! She jumped up and ran for the door just as Brian lifted Sylvie from the car. She shouted in squeals of delight and reached for her face and feet. She kissed her and said, “Tylvie!! Ruby hold! Peas!”

We all smiled at her pronunciation of her new sister’s name, and told her she could hold “Tylvie” inside. Onto the couch she climbed, a huge smile on her face. We placed Sylvie in her arms and she immediately fell in love. The giggles and smiles were just adorable. She tried to nurse Sylvie when she cried, and then helped mommy get positioned so that Sylvie could eat. The night went on like that for a while.

Today Ruby loves to help mommy with all things “Tylvie” related. She constantly wants to touch her and kiss her, and always asks to hold her. We are so proud of her for adjusting so well so far…we can only imagine how difficult it is to become the “big girl.” Instead, I call her my “big baby” and Sylvie is my little one!

Here are a few pics of the two of them together. Brian and I feel so blessed that we have two beautiful, healthy daughters…because what is better than sisters?? 🙂
