Big Sister

Mia is ALL about being the Big Sister. From Big Sister gifts from other Big Sisters (Thanks Izzy & Layla!) to having a big piece of brisket at dinner...it's a Big Sister piece. Mia is relishing in the Big Sister role. She is proud to take Lily's diapers to the trash...it's a Big Sister job. She even holds my breast while Lily is nursing...Mia's way of helping her lil sis eat. Mia is SUPER proud when we go places...introducing herself as the Big Sister and Lily as the lil sister. Since I'm under the nursling for quite a bit during the day, Mia LOVES getting her own snacks, water, reading books to Lily and just petting her when she's fussy. Mia also is so jazzed when she gets to hold Lily. I set her up and then she'll hold her until Lily cries...then she wants her off and fast! I LOVE these shots of the sisters. Lily is five days old, and Mia's already a champion lil sis holder...a far cry from when they first met!

I knew Mia would be a great big sister. She looks like a natural holding baby Lily. Those shots are too sweet.

Those are amazing captures. We could get Francesco to hold his brother without him looking like we just handed him a piece of Criptonite.
