We did not have any idea what it would be like to have a baby boy. We did not even have a boy name finalized until immediately before Reed was born.
And Rebekah, despite putting on an "I don't care either way" front, revealed her true feelings when James told her over the phone that she had a little brother, not a little sister.
She cried for 2 hours.
BUT, Reed is growing on her! She didn't get to see him for the first 2 weeks of his life since he was in the NICU, and so every morning she checks on him to see where he is.
She is SO excited about her brother that, unfortunately, she often wakes him up with her loud sister-brother chatter.
And sometimes goes to sleep beside him.
And she is PROTECTIVE. So ladies, watch out. If you want to hang out with ol' Reed, you are going to have to go through Big Sister.
