Awww... 54 Adorable Photos of Kids Meeting the New Baby

Some kids are overjoyed when they're introduced to their new baby brother or sister; others, not so much (who is this new, tiny person taking up all of mom's attention?!). Either way, that first meeting makes for a heartwarming (and sometimes hilarious) photo op. Take a look at these adorable first encounters...

Ready to Share

Delene Nguyen

Ready to Share

My 4-year-old daughter meeting her baby brother for the first time. My daughter has alopecia (hair loss condition) and her father and I gave her all the attention she could ever want. She was physically and mentally prepared for her baby brother. So we thought... When she walked into the room, she ran right up to the baby and wanted to hold him and kiss him. As she hopped up on my bed, her father placed the baby in her lap and she just gave him the sweetest loving gaze. When baby opened his eyes and saw his sister, oh boy, he had the loudest wale that echoed the room. Once she saw her dad picking up the baby, she cried her little heart out because her father's attention was towards the baby. After a little while, she calmed down and told the baby "It's ok baby brother, I will share" lol –Delene Nguyen

That Expression Though!

Chelsea Beisner

That Expression Though!

"Seriously? I'm not the baby anymore?" – Baby sister is now 6 weeks old and Big Sister couldn't be a bigger helper! She helps put little sisters socks on, gets out diapers and throws away the dirty ones, reads her book after book after book, and she's quick to get my attention if the baby so much as whimpers! It's so neat watching them together! –Chelsea Beisner
