Once I give everyone the details about Maggie's entrance into the world, the next question is usually about how Caroline is adapting to the new normal.
We brought Caroline to the hospital to meet her new sister. She was thrilled to see all the family members in one place and was interested in her sister briefly, but the novelty of the hospital wore off quickly. Soon she was interested in the next adventure. We snapped a couple pictures, the last clearly show her disinterest.
There were many jokes about how we thought Caroline would HATE the baby. Well she's been hovering between loving and ambiguity. Maggie's cries can send her parents blood pressure through the roof but Caroline doesn't skip a beat. Maggie will be screaming bloody murder and Caroline wants Mom to finish the book or Dad to contiue helping her with a puzzle unfazed. And then, she is the big sister, doting on Maggie with hugs and kisses, bringing her toys and educating her sister on the ways of the world.
