I was scheduled to be induced with Emma. I remember the night before I was scheduled to go in I was putting Christine to bed and thinking that the next time I would do it, there would be a new baby at home. I wondered how she would handle this little thing taking up her time, space, and parents. I worried that I wouldn't be able to give her the time she needed from me. I was almost a little sad to be having a baby because I knew it would totally change her world. I needn't have worried. She is the best big sister. I'm so proud of how she treats her little brother. I wish she wouldn't fight with Emma so much, but it's usually started by Emma. She likes to push Christine's buttons - and is very good at it. They love her and here is some proof.
This is the after-school ritual. Jacob lays on the floor and Christine hovers over top of him. He grabs her arms and squeals at her. She laughs, he laughs, and then Emma tries to get in on the action.
He adores Christine...the feeling is mutual.
Giving horsey rides to a very grateful little sister.
A little alone time. She likes to go to Jacob's room and read in the rocking chair by herself.
