Even though she's still working on how to be soft and nice to Michael all the time, it's pretty obvious that Lily absolutely adores Michael. I always had a feeling the whole time I was pregnant that they were going to be good friends, and seeing them together only confirms that. Since they're only 18 months apart I know that they're going to have competition and fight a lot, but I still can't wait to watch them grow up together. They're so cute together! Lily constantly asks to hold Michael, probably 5 times a day, and gets really upset when she can't. So here are some of my favorite pictures of my two favorite kids!
Lily's huge smile at seeing Michael for the first time. She walked into the hospital room to see us for the first time after the birth, and she immediately started saying "Michael, Michael!" and it was just like she knew exactly what to expect. She never seemed to think it was weird that I no longer had a huge belly either.
These are just a handful of the times she's asked to hold Michael. Half of the time she just starts squirming away immediately, but the other half she gets a huge smile on her face and starts kissing him and playing with his toes and tickling him. He puts up with it pretty well for the most part. Sometimes it even seems to calm him down to be with her. It's pretty cute. Having two is kind of crazy, especially so close in age and so young right now. But it's also pretty wonderful, and I'm so grateful for them both.
