It's been a whirlwind month or two for the Phero family. They recently finished building their dream home here in Loudoun County and then moved in with only a few weeks left to go before the arrival of their sweet little girl. Little Lila decided to make an appearance a tad earlier than expected which kind of threw a cute little wrench in Melanie and Graham's plans to get everything unpacked/decorated in her nursery before she arrived. But babies, they have a mind of their own! And judging by the looks on their faces and all the sweet cuddles during Lila's newborn session, I don't think mom and dad minded too much ;-) I was so impressed with how much they have already accomplished in such a short time of living in their new home!
Big brothers Grayson and Jack were so gentle and sweet with their brand new baby sister. They were so willing to listen to me and to love on little Lila. At one point, the boys started singing "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" to her as they cradled her in their arms and I'm not going to lie...I shed a tear or two behind the camera. There is something so special about welcoming a baby girl into a family of boys. Mom and Dad are usually super excited to buy pink stuff, dress her up in girly bows, and treat her like the princess that she is. But it's more than that. It's the brothers! Big brothers hold little sisters in a special place in their hearts. Even this young, I know without a shadow of a doubt that Grayson and Jack will look after Lila. ALWAYS. You could see it in the way they cared for her. I couldn't help but zoom in on their sweet little toesies as they held her because I know that one day, they won't be so little. But the way they love her...
...that won't change one bit.
Welcome to the world Lila! [ Great name by the way ;-) ]
