In an unbelievably adorable video shared on Facebook, a little girl named Henley, who is about one and a half, is seen cuddling with her newborn baby sister Peyton at a Pennsylvania hospital. Henley is certainly quite the overprotective big sister as she holds on to the newest addition to her family.
When their grandmother tries to take the newborn away, Henley rigidly shakes her head and moves closer to her baby sister when her grandma goes to reach for the baby. Henley has one arm under the newborn who is positioned partially on top of her as she is snuggled up in the hospital bassinet with her.
“Henley, you want me to take the baby? I’ll take her.” Grandma says as she moves close to the bassinet when the video clip begins all the while as Henley eyes her suspiciously before she firmly shakes her head.
Henley’s grandma asks a couple more times if she can take the newborn and another woman chimes in also requesting Henley to let them hold little Peyton but each time they get the very same response as Henley looks serious and yet again shakes her head no.
In the end, everyone in the hospital room gets the message, and they give up trying to get Peyton from her big sister.
Instead, they come up with a more enticing offer for Henley by asking if Henley wants to go for a ride with the baby while still in the bassinet. To this, Henley gives her little nod of approval.
Their grandma asks, “You gonna take care of your sister?” to which little Henley gives a small nod to.
Meanwhile, all the other people I the hospital room can be heard giggling at this adorable exchange in the background.
The girls’ auntie, Danielle, shared the adorable video on her Facebook account with the caption, “She’s so protective!” where it has since gone viral having garnered over eight million times.
