It’s hard to believe that any day now you’ll become a big sister. You’ll go from my one and only to one of two. I’ve known this would happen for nearly 10 months now, but it’s hitting me like a ton of bricks and it’s quite bittersweet for this mommy.
You were the one that made me a mommy. You came into our world on a hot day in late July and we’ve been in love ever since. Your first 19 months have passed in the blink of an eye and I know the next 19 years will go by just as fast. I’ve tried my best to soak up each and every moment with you. I don’t want to forget this time when it’s just been you and me (and Daddy, of course).
I like to think that I’m your teacher, but you’ve taught me so much over the last year and a half. You’ve taught me to laugh harder, love deeper, and just sit back and enjoy life’s little moments. We’ve sure made a great duo!
You make each day brighter. You find joy in the smallest of things. Now that you’re a full blown toddler your personality is certainly blossoming (and it doesn’t come without a good helping of sass). I’ve loved getting to know you one on one and watching you change from minute to minute.
As excited as I am for this new chapter to begin, I’m nervous about our transition into the next phase of life. I’ve had you all to myself for so long and I think we’re both going to need a period of adjustment. I’ve prayed that this will be a smooth transition for both of us. I’ve prayed that there is enough love in my heart and time in the day for you and your new sibling.
I know you’ll be an amazing big sister and a great helper. I have no doubt you’ll love your sibling unconditionally and show him or her all that you know. I’m sure you two will be thick as thieves in no time!
Wherever you go and whatever you do, just remember this: I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always, as long as I’m living my baby you’ll be.
