Annabel seems even bigger now that she is a big sister! Lila Persephone Cantor was born November 19th, five days before Annabel turned two. She has taken to the Big Sister role with ease. She walked into the hospital room and looked at my tummy and then looked at the baby a couple times, then pointed to say 'baby sister sleeping'. Ever since she has been deeply interested in knowing where baby sister is at all times. She tells me when baby sister needs a blanket or a wipe, and she's voluntarily given her most favorite friend, White Bunny, to baby sister. She gives her gentle caresses on her back and shoulder and gives her lots of kisses on the head. She doesn't seem jealous at all except she's not so happy that mommy can't pick her up like she used to. But my birth recovery is going great, so I'll be able to do that soon.
Here is Lila on her first day here:
