Big Sister

Jewell is warming up to her role as a big sister. When she was first introduced to Ivy at the hospital she didn't know what to think. She just seemed perplexed. She would shrink away when we tried to put Ivy next to her. When Ivy came home Jewell continued to keep her distance.

But not for long. The change into big sister mode came when we put Ivy down for her first nap. "Where is the baby?" asked Jewell. Amazingly Ivy slept through her sisters exclamations of delight at learning the bassinet was not just for stuffed animals.

Older sister moments/interactions:
  • Jewell loves to hold her sister.
  • Jewell will gently stroke her sisters head.
  • When Jewell tries to say Ivy it comes out "I-fie".
  • If Ivy cries Jewell runs in from the other room and while patting Ivy's head with both hands repeats, "You're ok, you're ok."

Awwwww! She's such a good big sister already. I always wanted a sister- so lucky that your girls get to experience sisterhood. They are both so beautiful!
