It seems like most people I know with a toddler and a new baby have to deal with making sure the toddler doesn't poke the baby's eyeballs out or try to pick her up, but I don't have to worry about that because Faith avoids Cordelia like that girl you wished you hadn't started a conversation with at a party.

In fact, this was the first time I've gotten a them to sit on the couch together. You can tell Faith is loving it.
I love it when some well-meaning adult asks Faith "Do you like being a big sister?" and gets this reaction from her:
The funny thing is that the more Faith resists it, the more Cordelia seems delighted with her. I'll look over and see Cordelia just grinning at Faith and getting a scowl in return. Cordelia doesn't understand at all what is going on (but then again, she's kind of slow on social cues in general).
Faith is right about one thing though: Cordelia is out to steal all of her toys and she can be sneaky about it.
I still have a dream of getting a picture of the two them sitting together and Faith NOT scowling like a tiny teenager, but I may be waiting a while. At least there is still one member of the family who is always willing to work it for the camera:

It's a really a good thing that Faith and Cordelia have such a great parent like me to guide them through difficult problems like learning to live with each other. Wait, is taking pictures and laughing "great parenting?"
