My sweet baby girl. My first born. My precious rainbow baby. I have so many emotions about you and I as I go through this season of growing your younger sibling. They will be every bit as loved and cherished and celebrated, but you will forever hold a special place in my heart.
I know this addition will grow us and change us. There is a part of me that is so excited and there is a part of me that is breaking and sad for you. It will no longer be just you and me and daddy. And I worry that you won’t understand. I worry that you will think mommy doesn’t cherish you as much, but sweet girl I will. You have been the best teacher, gracious and sweet and patient while Mommy figures it out. You have allowed me to grow and learn so much not just about motherhood, but about myself. And I just know you will be the most amazing big sister, and the best little helper.
So I won’t rush this time that we have left, just you and me. We will savor and cherish every day. Every moment. Every bedtime snuggle and every good morning kiss. I will eat up your smallness and take it all in, because I know in just a few short months you will seem so big. I will do my best to soak in every moment of you being my tiny baby. Thank you, my girl, for being the best that Mommy could ever wish for or imagine.
