Reflections on Being a Big Brother

When you are a big brother, you definitely have a lot of responsibilities. You have to hold your little sister and make her happy. You have to talk to her and read her stories. I also love singing her songs. Before she was born, I practiced singing "Rock-a-bye Baby" over and over again so that I would be really good at it. 

But being a big brother is not so bad, especially since my sister is so cute! And I am a really good big brother, too. I tell Mommy that at least 20 times a day. And of course she agrees!
And at the end of the day, you can count on your Daddy to be able to put both you and your little sister to sleep. Whew, being a big brother can be so tiring!

So even though being a big brother is a big responsibility, I wouldn't trade it for anything. I love you, little Mia, and I love being your big brother!

P.S. Sorry about the dark photos. Mommy tries hard not to flash Mia with her camera. It makes her sad.

I bet you are a spectacular big brother, Noah! I have seen you snuggle sweet Mia and give her big kisses. She is a lucky little girl!

Well it certainly looks like you've got everything under control!! Mia will be happier every day to have you nearby!
