The gentle curiosity our "big baby" had for our "little baby" has since worn off and has been replaced by a desire to play! Vivienne loves to "hug", "kiss", and "hold it" with Lulu. Especially if Vivienne is sad or upset. We do a lot of snuggles these days. Viv loves to steal Lulu's paci and share her toys - although she gets upset that Lulu can't grab the toys she hands her. Vivi also thinks it's funny to find Lulu's belly button and to tickle her toes. Viv is also keenly aware of Lulu and feels protective when someone else is holding her. She points to Lulu and tells me where she is just in case I didn't know. And she scrunches up her face in empathy when Lulu cries and says, "sad" or "okay baby".
Vivienne may not be the little baby anymore, but she's a great big sister! And there is great joy in that!
