As with Baby Cabbage, the Nugget mostly wanted to be an assistant caretaker. He helped shake bottles of formula to mix with Cupcake's rice cereal. He comforted her when she cried, gently scrubbed her back in the tub, and he helped operate the baby swing. This kid was born to be a big brother.
We took some really sweet portraits of the siblings together at Portait Innovations. I won't post them here since they were professional, but we were thrilled with the results, and they came out much better than anything I was able to capture. Here is one sweet moment, with Nugget and Cupcake enjoying one of the Llama Llama books with Tummy Mummy.
I was so pleased with how our community welcomed the Nugget's Tummy Mummy and Baby Cupcake. We are so proud and grateful to have them as part of our family. It's a blessing that Nugget and Cupcake will grow up knowing each other, and I hope this is just their first visit of many. I don't know if I have birthsibs, and I imagine that meeting them this late in the game would be more than a little awkward. Nugget and Cupcake will just be a natural part of each other's lives....hooray! Open adoption is not for everyone, but it's a perfect fit for us!
