Happy National Siblings Day! While this celebration is basically an excuse to post embarrassing old family photos online, we stopped to ask ourselves a question: What was life like before baby no. 2 came along?

Before there were siblings, there was an only child who had to be told there was a baby on the way. (Need help breaking the news and making the adjustment? We’ve got you covered.) And when your oldest gets to help tell the world you’re expecting again, it makes for some seriously cute photo ops.

 

She’ll have tea for two, thank you very much.
