18 months old and 2 weeks old - and doing so well

I was so impressed with big girl T - she is just starting to figure out this big sister thing, and she's doing a great job of it. At only 18 months old, she's only had a couple of weeks to get used to her new brother S, and she was really wonderful with him:

First of all, though, isn't he a handsome devil? I also love the quilt in this shot - cool leaf pattern!

And pretty girl T:

I feel like this is the picture I wish I had of myself just after my 2nd was born. Shanna (mom) looks so sweetly welcoming as big sister crawls across the bed toward her baby brother. I always feel like I'm telling my older daughter to be careful of her sister. I want Shanna's expression to be what my girls remember of me instead!

Shhh, baby brother. I'm trying to watch Handy Manny.

Scout's honor, I haven't retouched any of these pictures. Doesn't Shanna look amazingly well rested for a mom of two under two?

I love the expressions on the girls here:
