14 Heartwarming Photos of Siblings Meeting for the First Time

If there’s anything sweeter than looking at adorable photos of siblings meeting for the very first time, I certainly haven’t found it yet. There’s just something so magical about that meeting, when newly-minted big brothers and big sisters giddily run up to meet their younger counterparts. Staring at them with wonder through the hospital window, peering into their bassinets, sitting oh-so-still as their new baby brother or sister is placed into their arms …  It gets me every single. time.

I still get butterflies in my stomach when I think of how excited I was for my own kids to burst into the hospital room and meet their little siblings. It’s a moment of pure love.

And even though we know our kids will go on to fight tooth and nail — finding new and creative ways to argue about the most ridiculous things and driving you crazy with complaints of “Mom, he’s BREATHING by me!” — seeing snapshots of those first meetings can still bring us back to a much simpler time. Back when our kids first met and fell in love.

We’ve rounded up some of the sweetest images out there. (Hold back your ovaries, ladies, because you’re in for an emotional ride.)
