The Big Sister

After Margot's grand entrance into the world, Mom went to get Sylvia from my aunt's house.  We are so blessed to have our family around to help take care of The Nugget.  I didn't have to worry about her at all yesterday, especially since my aunt's house is one of her favorite places to be.  Here's the video of Mom and Lori telling Sylvia the big news.

And here's the video that makes me all weepy.  When the girls are teenagers, and Sylvia refuses to drive her little sister somewhere, and Margot slams the door to her room and shouts, "She hates me!" I'll make her watch this.  And I'll say, "See! Your big sister loved you the minute she saw you.  Even after we all heard your first poop."

Tonight, Sylvain and I are at the hospital, preparing for a long night with our little rock star, Margot.  Girl wants nothing more than to cry and to eat!  She's sleeping at the moment, which means I'm about to get some sleep myself, if I can pull myself away from my new favorite past time - kissing her perfect little round head.  It's so soft!  It smells so good!  Looking at it just isn't enough.  I have to get close enough to soak up all that baby goodness - which is why God made kisses.
