Sofía Meets Sydnei

Stormy and I wanted Sofía to be the first family member to meet Sydnei. It was very important for us that they establish a relationship upfront—although Sofía clearly knows that she's the big sister, and refers to Sydnei as "her bebé." When Sofía walked in the room, Sydeni had a little gift waiting for her: a pink pony with sparkling hooves (right up Sofía's ally). Coincidentally, Sofía, with the help of her Mama Thompson, had a pink teddy bear to give to Sydnei. It was a very sweet moment watching these two meet for the first time; Sofía was so overwhelmed with joy to see her little sister, and, of course, had many questions, like, "Mom, how did Sydnei come out of your tummy?" Yeah, try explaining that to a four-year-old girl. Oh, yeah, and, "Mami, what color are her eyes? Are they blue like mine?" And to top it off with "Mami, can I pet her?"

Hi Staleys, I have learned to leave a comment from Careese. I Love the new pictures on the blog. Sofia opening her present from Sydnei and holding her baby sister Sydnei are just precious. Enough to make MaMa Thompson cry, happy cries of course.

Congratulations Staley Family! Having a gift from Sydnei was such a great idea. Our little Macie had a train for Tyce when they first met in the hospital...he fell in love right there and then! You have BEAUTIFUL girls. I look forward to many more photos to come!
