Big Brother Jack (part II)

super sad new big brother.
(((jack))
remember him?!?!?
screaming at the hospital when he saw his new sister, in his mom’s arms??

well, he wasn’t super into his new sister when I went back to do newborns. . .
but mom assured me, he’d been pretty cool with her,
ever since they came home.

he ignored her for most of our shoot.
we bribed him with pop tarts.
and promised him a trip to the park.
none of it worked well.

we were almost done.
it had been over an hour.
he wasn’t having her.
or me.
or any of this nonsense.

“let’s try him with her one more time” I suggested.
grandma carried him in and plopped him down.

without even asking him,
he leaned over, and gave her the
BIGGEST.
SOFEST.
BIG BROTHER HUG.
ever.

I loved that Ashley’s “surprised” face,
almost matched her “so sad” face. . .at the hospital.

this is why I love this.
just a few days earlier, I’d got to see them go from one to two, and journey through the thick of how it sometimes looks.
at first.

then today.
I got to see them.
have a moment like this.

the kind of moment.
when you realize, it’s most likely > > >
all going to be ok.

or even better.
it’s going to be really,
really good.

here is to siblings.
the good.
the bad.
and the down right, adorable.
