Three year olds are adorable. Newborns are also adorable. When three year old sister meets newborn sister, it’s too cute for words. This is the story of a little girl named Mollie who meets her sister Margot for the first time.
After hugs from mom, Mollie took an apprehensive peek at this new little creature that mom and dad so lovingly referred to as her little sister.
There was Margot, a sweet little baby, wrapped in a blanket with a tiny little bow in her hair.
Mollie stared at Margot, not sure if her little sister was as great as mom and dad seemed to think she was. She wasn’t ready to warm up to her just yet.
Mom and Dad suggested a toast to Margot’s arrival with baked sweets from a lovely pink box. Mollie smiled.
After she enjoyed her cupcake, Mollie became a bit more curious about Margot. She watched Margot sleeping in the little plastic hospital crib while clinging to the familiarity of Daddy’s arms hugging her. She watched. And observed. And watched. And observed. Sometimes moving closer to that clear plastic crib to get a better look before retreating back to Daddy.
Then came the opportunity to help mommy dress Margot in a cute little onesie. This piqued Mollie’s curiosity. She watched. Then she moved a little closer. Then she watched. Then moved a little closer. This happened a few times, with every move closer to Margot removing a bit of uncertainty from Mollie’s mind.
She looked at Mommy with eyes of amazement and then a soft smile appeared on her face.
Still reluctant, Mollie presented Margot with a stuffed butterfly seeming to say to her that everything was going to be okay.
Family snuggles and hugs soon followed. Though, still the slightest bit unsure, Mollie had begun to warm up to her baby sister.
Mom knew this was an accomplishment, and everything would soon fall into place.
Daddy did, too.
And, somewhere along the way, so did Mollie.
