When older siblings meet their baby sister or brother, they tend to respond in one of two ways. They’re either thrilled to become loving mentors… or they’re absolutely horrified because they might lose some of their parents’ attention.
For 3-year-old Molly of Wynnewood, Pennsylvania, the moment of truth came in November. Heather Conley, her mom, had just given birth to a baby girl named Cora, and when Molly held her for the first time in the hospital, her feelings became instantly clear.
In a precious video, we see Molly’s face light up as she snuggles the newborn. She’s so excited that Heather has to warn her to “be gentle,” but Molly simply can’t keep herself from hugging and caressing the little one every few seconds.
“You just came out of Mommy’s belly,” she marvels to Cora. “I won’t let you go anymore.”
And the love just keeps coming! “You’re so cute,” Molly tells Cora as she showers her with kisses and careful pats.
We suspect this is one of Heather’s new proudest moments as a mom. “I just got that on video,” she says, obviously left in awe by her daughters’ sweet encounter. To think she didn’t know how Molly would react!
Our hearts just can’t handle this level of adorableness! Cora is lucky to have such a sweetheart looking after her and keeping her safe! As these two get older, they’re sure to look back on this precious moment and smile knowingly. Congratulations to the entire Conley family on their beautiful new addition!
