two big brothers
The excitement was obvious. Riley was thrilled to meet his little sister. The first thing he wanted to do is hold her. He told her his name was Riley and that he was her big brother...and that he loved her already. He just wanted to keep rubbing her head and smiling at her.
Brody wasn't sure what to think...he couldn't figure out why we kept telling him that Charlotte was no longer in my tummy, but that she was this little baby that I was holding. He kept running over and rubbing my tummy and saying "baby", then looking at her not sure what to think. I am sure it will take a while for him to realize what is happening.
I really look forward to seeing how both Riley and Brody will adapt to being big brothers to Charlotte. I am sure they will take good care of her.
