This little one is about to be a big sister any day now. She is so excited for it, and anyone who knows her knows she will be incredible at this new role. Yes, she will!
But this night. This night was about her. Soon she won’t be the only one basking in mom and dad’s love. There will be another little voice that fills up their home, another little face that they all will smile upon, another set of toes to tickle.But for tonight, there was twirling with mom… …being thrown on the pillows by dad… …practicing being a big sister walking her baby doll around the neighborhood… …giving mommy kisses while on dada’s shoulders… …and running through the sprinkler, full force, with nothing but pure joy. Every time I look at these pictures, I tear up. I can’t help but think of my own daughter and how she was right around this same age when her little sister came into her life. I can feel the change coming for this little one, and what an incredible thing that will be for her. To have a sister. What a gift! I love knowing that they had this beautiful night together – that mommy and dada jumped in the sprinkler with her without hesitation, that there was such joy everywhere. And that they have these pictures to remember it all. It’s magic, really. And so very, very beautiful. I am grateful that this family exists – wrapping each other up with love and joy. And so excited for this little one to meet baby sister soon!
