My beautiful little girl,
You have had mommy and daddy wrapped around your little finger since the second you were born. We simply cannot believe how fast you have grown. In the next couple of weeks, you will become a big sister. That sounds crazy, because it feels like we just had you. Your sass and adorable personality teach me otherwise. You are such an amazing little human. I don't know if the weird feeling of you being ours will ever really go away. I feel so lucky to be your mama. You are such a joy and you always have been.
The excitement I feel when I think of you becoming a big sister almost always trumps my fears/anxieties over welcoming another little girl into our family. I have no doubt in my mind that we will all adjust perfectly. It's more my fears/anxieties about having to share my time with you with your sister. Because quite honestly, it is still too hard to comprehend how I am going to love another little baby as much as I love you. You have been my entire world for 2 1/2 + years now. But as you will.....and as you always do, you will for sure surprise us with what an amazing little girl you are.
The way you are with Harper now is almost too reassuring at what a good big sister you will be. The way you kiss her goodnight every time I put you in your crib, how you ask me a million times a day if she is big enough to come out, and my favorite.....how you put your hand on my belly and excitedly scream "She's kicking me!" (even when she's not).
You are such a sweet soul. You have such a nature to want to help and take care of everyone and everything. The way you are with Nolan, Brody and Lilly melts my heart. How you want nothing but to hold them and love on them. I can't imagine how you will be when it sinks in that Harper is here to stay. We talk all the time about how little Harper will be when she comes and how she will cry and sleep a lot. We go through old pictures of you and how much you've grown. I think you are really excited for when she is actually big enough to play with you. Until then? I think you will love being such a big helper to mommy.
I hope you know how much mommy and daddy love and adore you. You will always be the one that made us mommy and daddy (or mommy-o and daddy-o). The one that scared us to death on the day you were born, showed us what it's like to love someone so much it hurts and how nothing else in the entire world matters in this life, except our babies. We would do anything for you and I hope we do a great job at showing you how much you are loved every.single.day.
We love you so much little nugget. Here's to a whole new chapter in our tiny little family's life.
Mommy and Daddy
