Big Sister

Annalise has far exceeded any expectations I could have had of her as a big sister. She loves Karina, who she only calls BabyKarina (one word) more than I've ever seen anyone so little love somebody else. She constantly (CONSTANTLY) wants to help with her, hold her, hug her, kiss her, sing songs to her, and talk to her. BabyKarina loves her right back because if she is crying and Annalise lays next to her, squishing her body against the baby's, she'll stop crying. She stares at Annalise and coos to her and smiles at her and it is all basically is the sweetest thing you've ever seen. There has never been any jealousy, aggression towards the baby, or anything negative at all. (Unless you count misguided loving attempts to smash the binkie into her mouth while the baby screeches and wails.)

Love, love all your pics from your posts! I'm glad Analise is a good big sis, hopefully it stays that way!
