To my Littlest One
My Dear Sweet Elinor,
I know sometimes you can seem a little non-existant next to your big sister. She tends to steal the stage with her ballerina’s, tutus, talking, singing, tantrums…and all the other things that make her the big sister you are forever trying to keep up with.
But you are so precious, my little baby… my happy one.
Always busy. Exploring your little world…tasting everything along the way. I am so sorry I took the blue crayon from you…I know you loved its crunchy taste and the way it dyed your mouth blue. One day you’ll understand why I do such cruel things. I love you and I want you around. Forever.
So please just keep on being the sweet little girl we are all loving to love. Please don’t grow up too fast because I really like having you as my baby. You are the easiest, jolliest, and dearest little 9 month old a mommy could ask for.
So when you feel like you are living in the shadow of your big sister. Don’t worry. Mommy sees you.
