Eileen the Big Sister

Eileen is really enjoying her role as big sister.

She and William adore each other.  I hope this continues when William is able to crawl and get into her stuff.

At first, Eileen was jealous.  She didn't want anything to do with the new baby, and it was impossible to get a good picture of her next to him.

Not happy about sharing mommy...

We had to let her hold an iPhone so she would sit next to William.
Sometimes, she wouldn't even get in the photo with William...

Photo without Eileen

Not wanting to take a picture with William.
We took over 100 snapshots for my Christmas card, and we never got a "perfect" one because Eileen was so upset when we sat her next to the baby.
She did try to give the 10 day old baby some sugar cookie

However, it didn't take long for Eileen to learn to adore her brother.  And he already is fascinated with her.  Eileen gets smiles from William when nobody else can.  His gaze follows her wherever she goes.

She now poses with William.

And pretends to read to him.

She loves to give him hugs and kisses.

And Eileen takes special pleasure in photobombing his pictures.

 Eileen is proud of her role as big sister, and she should be because she's a very good sister!
