Hugs and Kisses

It took Cilla a few days to warm up to the idea of kissing and holding baby brother.  But once she started, there was no stopping her!  Here are a pictures we captured from those sweet first moments....well, Duke might argue that they were sweet!
"It's okay, Brother!"
 So thrilled to get her hands on him.......
and to smother him with kisses!!!
 And more kisses!
I am so grateful that Cilla has already loves her brother so much!

A sweet little story that I want to lock away in the mommy memory vault:
Cilla, although hard-headed and strong-willed, has the heart of a giant!  She is exceptionally thoughtful for a little girl her age.  Just days before her little sibling was born, she decided she wanted him (or her) to have a giraffe of their very own.  Just like her Gigi!  So while we were shopping one day, we found this precious little giraffe that was her gift to her brother!  When he is upset and crying, she gets him his giraffe, just like she likes to have her's!  It is precious and just another one of those little tiny details that God has blessed us with to make my heart happy!
