    A brother, a sister and a dinosaur

     
    For our second child, my wife and I decided not to find out the gender of the baby ahead of time. There are very few girls in my family, so we were fairly certain we would be having another boy. Whenever we asked our 3-year-old son Jack if the new baby was going to be a boy or a girl, he always told us it would be a girl and that the baby girl's name was "Stroller."

    So when we brought Jack to meet his new sister Lucy on the day she was born -- August 9, 2014 -- I was a little worried he would call her "Stroller." But he never did. At first he just called her "the baby," but he soon started calling her Lucy, and now, at nearly 4 years old, Jack often introduces his 8-month old sister as "my baby Lucy."

    This photo shows Jack's first meeting with Lucy. The fact that Jack is showing Lucy his precious dinosaur is proof of the immediate bond between brother and sister.
