Here are some really precious pictures of Marguerite and Cameron:
She had been asking (nagging) us to let her carry the baby. I'd really been planning to let her hold Cameron, but I thought it was going to be a bigger production with Mark there and with lots more pillows. In the end, I let her do it one evening at bedtime. Mark wasn't there, but she did it in bed and with my boppy pillow for support. I wanted to get her to say the "I love you forever" lines, but that's the kind of thing that would have me blubbering (and definitely no blubbering - or blinking, or breathing - while a 5-year-old is carrying the baby)
Like I said, Marguerite is very sweet to her baby brother. She loves playing with him (albeit needing to be reminded to be gentle every now and then, or not to do it when he's sleeping) and she calls him "my baby", like when the baby's crying, she'll rush into the room and demand, "What are you doing to my baby?". Of course, there have been moments when she referred to him as "that baby" too, like when he was bawling at 1am, she growled at us, "Somebody make that baby stop!"... Overall, I think her response to the change has been good.
