Phoebe is transitioning well into the roll of a big sister. At first she didn't want to have anything to do with the new baby, but she is slowly warming up for her. When Phoebe first visited us in the hospital, she was intrigued by the baby, and kept pointing saying "baby! baby!"
She got a stuffed "Mater" from baby Haddie Grace.
Since coming home, Phoebe has started to show some more interest in her baby sister. She enjoys pointing out her feet and helping to "swing" Haddie Grace when she's in the baby swing. Apparently the swing doesn't swing as high or as fast as Phoebe thinks it should...
The beauty of having two girls is that you can dress them alike.
Phoebe had refused to hold or really touch Haddie Grace until she was about 2 weeks old. And then one day she grabbed Haddie Grace around the waist when she was on her play mat and dragged her out. We asked Phoebe if she wanted to hold Haddie Grace, and she said yes. She has now held her and asked to hold her several times. She also likes to lay down next to Haddie Grace on her play mat and show her all the toys hanging down.
The girls are very cute together and I pray will grow up to be best friends.
