Big Brother is Watching

I have to admit, before Annie was born, I was really worried about how McKay would react to her.  He is still a MAJOR "Mommy's Boy," basically my shadow and helper for everything!  I was concerned that he would feel usurped by the new baby; by all the time and attention that it would be necessary for me to give her.  
I shouldn't have worried so much.  This boy is the greatest big brother ever!  He absolutely adores and dotes on his little sister.  I have heard all of these things come out of his mouth within the last two weeks:

"Oh, my Pretty Pretty Princess!"
"Annie, my baby, I love you!"
"You are my baby, you are my heart."
"I love Annie best."
"She's all of our baby, but she is my baby, too."

You get the picture.  He is always asking to hold her, to help change her diaper, or to sing her a song.  I have to admit, his reaction has surprised me, but I am thrilled with how well he is taking this new addition to our family!

Love, love how he is looking at her and appears to be so 'soft' in his touches. So sweet.

I love this. I'm so glad McKay is such a good big brother -- makes a momma's heart happy to see their kids being friends. :-)
