During the footage, which has since received more than 27,000 on social media, older sister Molly, from Wynnewood, Pennsylvania, cradles her newborn sister Cora tightly in her arms and can’t take her eyes off the new bundle of joy.
As the toddler gently pats the baby’s head and offers her multiple kisses, mother Heather Conley is heard telling her child: ‘Be gentle.’
Knowing she must be gentle with the little baby, Molly tells her new sister: ‘You just came out of mommy’s belly. I won’t drop you … I won’t let you go anymore.’
