The Heart-Melting Moment When Siblings Meet For the First Time

The day a baby is born isn't just a big deal for his or her parents — it's also a monumental occasion for the newly initiated big brother or sister.

From the moment their younger sibling enters the world, these little ones officially pass their torch as the baby and enter into a new role as the older sibling. And when they see "their" baby for the first time, you can see the amazement, understanding, and love they have for this newborn. That baby isn't just a family member, he or she is a future playmate and person they're going to protect for the rest of their lives — and their bond starts from the moment they lock eyes.
