Lydia the Big Sister

When we told Lydia we were pregnant, she was in awe. Robin said, "That means you're going to be..." and she finished in a wonder-struck whisper, "A big sister." Ever since then she has looked forward to the arrival of "her baby," and she is truly in love. She can't get enough of Holden, always wants to hold him, and be close to him. She constantly says, "I love you, baby," and coos at her little brother. We are very early in the game, and I'm sure that as Lydia realizes the permanence of Holden's presence, there are going to be some major growing pains, but right now, we are reveling in watching our forever-baby girl become a big sister to our baby boy.
