Very very soon your whole world is going to change. Your baby sister is going to be born, and nothing in your little life will ever be the same again. Some days (ok almost every day) I feel a little guilty about that. Right now you are my everything (well, besides your daddy of course, be he is a bit more low maintenance than you). My world more or less pretty much revolves around your wants and needs. Not too shabby, huh? I love that you're my little sidekick. My itty bitty partner in crime.
But soon, soon Elsie is going to join our family, and my world can't just revolve around you. It has to include both of you. She is going to have wants and needs too. And my time is going to have to be divided. I hate that. I hate that I can't give you everything anymore. But you know what? Being a big sister is pretty darn awesome. Your Auntie Lorin and I? Well, we rarely ever see eye to eye. Yet I wouldn't trade her for anything. And I am so incredibly thankful that I have a sister. There is just something so special about having a sister.
Because of that, I know that even though this is going to be tough. And even though I feel like I'm taking something away from you. Giving you a sister is going to be amazing. You will be a great big sister. I just know it. I'm sure you'll try and mother Elsie more than she'll like. I have no doubt that you guys will butt heads from time to time. But there is nothing like having a sister. Having someone who in the thick of everything will always have your back. Because you're sisters, and that is what you do. So even when she is driving you up the wall and you swear you hate her and can't stand her for another minute? Love her. Love your sister. Just trust me.
Oh my first born, some days you drive me absolutely batty. There is no denying it. I never knew that such a small person could be such an emotional roller coaster. But I am so incredibly grateful that you made me a mother. There isn't a day goes by that I am not thankful that you're in my life. You've made me a better person, stronger than I ever thought possible. Thank you for that. Know that no matter what, I'll ALWAYS love you. More than you could ever dream. You are my bestest.
finally ordered the remote for my camera, someone please tell me why I didn't do it sooner??
