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

Park Day!

I got brave and went to the park today with my two babies. Actually, not super brave. I chose the park that's easiest to keep Lucca in the playground area. We had a blast, and 2-week old baby brother mostly cooperated. These adventures will be much easier when my new Ergo Baby Carrier arrives that I ordered today.

Not gonna lie

Sometimes I just sit and stare at the beauty of my daughter.

Sweetest Girl

"Baby brother is SO cute!" she squeals about 10 times a day.

Lucca has been amazing with Jackson so far, we couldn't ask for more. I was nervous about how the queen would respond to a stranger invading her castle (as her pediatrician perfectly put it), but she loves him. She gives him kisses, reads him stories, holds him and tries to give him milk and apple juice. When he's not called "brother" she likes to call him Jack. We know they will have a pretty special relationship and it's been melting my heart to watch it form already.

Best big sister in the world.

Kitty Dress

I'm also convinced Lucca needs this dress. Could you even imagine?
She would never, ever take it off!

Summer is coming

Reminder...must get this for Lucca.
