Best Big Sister Ever

Lucca LOVES Jackson. It just melts my little heart to watch her with him. She asks to see him as soon as she wakes up each morning. She smothers him with kisses, hugs, snuggles, etc - and I mean smothers. We have to keep a very close eye on her because the love she has for her "brand new baby brother!" is immense and sometimes pours out by laying right on top of him. Or squeezing him. Or poking his eyes.

I am incredibly thankful Lucca has responded so well to Jackson. During my pregnancy, I would be up in the middle of the night worrying about her, wondering how she would react to a new baby in the house. On her turf. Uninvited. I felt guilty and nervous -- mostly scared that our new baby would change my relationship with Lucca. I was scared she would be mad, and jealous over all of the attention the new baby would require. But thankfully it's the exact opposite. We hear "Can we bring brother? Can I hold brother? Can I touch brother? Can I kiss brother?" And when she isn't asking us these questions, she is squealing with excitement over him. All his noises make her laugh. She likes when he yawns, sneezes, squeaks, toots. And when he cries? "It's okay buddy! What do you need buddy? I think he needs some milk from mommies boobies..."

She loves to love him. Thank you God. We are blessed, and know it. <3
