Of course, Mackenzie loves her and wants to hold her all the time. If Miranda had been born full term and was 3 or 4 pounds heavier, I would probably let Mackenzie hold her more often, but as she is now, I've only let her hold her a few times in the last few days. She loves it though, and I've promised her she can help more as Miranda gets older and bigger.
The biggest surprise for me is how Meredith has handled "baby randa". She also loves her and has reacted about the same way Mackenzie did when Meredith was born...not loving her all the time, but not disliking her either...sort of indifferent. Meredith is actually more interested in all of Miranda's baby paraphernalia than anything...the car seat, the bottles, the blankets. When I let her hold her yesterday for the first time, she kept saying, "Hi baby randa. Hi baby randa" and touched all of her toes and fingers as if she was counting them! ;)
And finally, because this is what I do, I had to compare baby pictures to see who Miranda looks like. I've put her picture next to each of the girls separately and I think she looks like Mackenzie. Her hair is dark and her eyes are dark blue (like most babies), so I'm not sure if they will change or not.
I'm so glad Miranda's home...now are family of 5 is all under one roof!
