Lila Alta joined our family April 19, 2010 at 1:20 P.M. Unbelievably, she's as good of a baby as her big brother and is already all smiles and coos during her awake times. Big brother Bear has amazed me because everyone always talks about sibling rivalry and jealousy. Instead, this boy is nothing but LOVE. He wants nothing more than to touch and kiss his "sissy" as soon as he sees her. I swear that he was playing his own rendition of peek-a-boo with her the other day and even earned a smile from her in doing so.
I pray for their relationship to be so amazing. I know that he will love her so fiercly and I pray that she is the most compassionate, kind, and patient sister. But at the same time I want her to be a little firecracker who stands up for her big brother and is his champion and protector. Here are a few photos for your enjoyment.
