Big Brother

Riker is officially a big brother now.
And I mean big.
When he came to the hospital to visit Olivia and I, it seemed like he had grown into a giant over night.


It may have been all the extra hormones that were rushing through my body, but seeing Riker with Olivia had me in tears.
When we set him on the bed and showed Olivia to him for the first time, he poked her nose so gently and said “baby sister". he knew exactly who she was.


Riker was so completely sweet with Olivia. He held her carefully on his little lap and just looked at her face. Of course, after about 10 seconds he was bored with her and wanted to get down to push every single button in the room.


I’m pretty sure Riker will be an amazing big brother.
Olivia is so lucky.
