Big brother and little sister

Wyatt had been with my mom since our appointment. I think it killed her that she wasn't at the hospital while her baby was having baby, but because she had Wyatt I think it made it less painful for her.

I truly wanted Wyatt to be the first one to meet his little sister and that's exactly what happened. I am so happy that everything went so smoothly and he arrived shortly after Claire had.

Mom brought him in and we introduced him. She was crying when he got there and he just looked at her confused. I think he also realized that there was a lot going on around him and being in a new place just wanted to explore a little. We got him to give her sugar.

I guess we couldn't really expect much from him considering he is still very much a baby himself, but I was so proud of him when he would give sissy sugar.

We tried to get him to hold her on his own. We set him in the chair and went to hand her to him and he immediately pushed her away. It was one of the funniest things I've ever witnessed him do and I honestly wish I had it on video. They set him in bed with me and handed us Claire and I think that's when he really took to her. He was so curious about her and all her little features. She got lots of pokes to the eyes and nose!

It was so sweet seeing them together. My heart was so full at that moment and I couldn't help but feel so proud of my big boy and my little girl.

The next day, Wyatt really took to Claire. He avoided her for about the first 15 minutes and actually cut eyes at Mimi twice while she was holding her. Once Nana got Claire he began to pay a little bit of attention and before we knew it was all about some Claire. He wanted to be a big boy and hold her all by himself. Sweetest thing EVER! I tried to take her away a couple of times but he would cry and say "mine!" I'm telling you nothing could have made me happier.

Once we got home that evening mom, dad, and Jason brought Wyatt over along with some dinner. Wyatt was still all about his sister. We had her in the bouncy seat and he would not quit giving her kisses and trying to lay with her. It made both of us so proud.

Last night was our first night home with both of our babies. We put Claire in the swing and Wyatt found her a present. I turned around and he had given her one of her firetrucks. I wanted to die right then. Then, this morning we got Wyatt out of bed and the first thing he did was come to our room, say hi to "bebe" (as she is so lovingly dubbed by him), gave her one of her stuffed animal, gave her Scout, and then started to swing her. He is such a great big brother already! We are so proud of him!!


  1. Glad Wyatt is doing so well with Claire!! Enjoy your adorable family :)

  2. So adorable! Glad he is taking to her well. :)

  3. So sweet! I know y'all are enjoying the first days as a family of four, and everybody looks great! Enjoy putting bows on all of that precious hair ;o)!

  4. I'm surprised how quickly he did take to her. But that's awesome! And that feeling, it's awesome. I remember thinking over over again how great it was to love 2 kiddos!! It's amazing, congrats again!!
