So along with Katherine's arrival, came the big sister role for Riley. To be honest, we were more nervous about how Riley's world was about to change than bringing home a new baby. It would be an understatement to say Riley is a great big sister.
She came to visit at the hospital on Saturday morning, sporting her appropriate attire for the occasion.
Riley immediately wanted to hold "baby". Katherine is a mouthful, but we've got baby down to an art!
We were discharged Saturday afternoon (at my request I might add), and Riley greeted us at home before we could get to the front door!
Informing the family of the proper noise level suited for a new baby.Riley, being the child of order that she is, she constantly is aware that Katherine's pacifier needs to be with her, or in her mouth at all times, the baby blanket is supposed to cover her up, not lay around. My boppy pillow belongs next to her. And she's a big help with diaper changes, etc. Riley has adjusted very well so far. I'm sure we'll have our moments, but thus far, she's done great at her new role!
