big sister

Dear Little Leah, 

Well, the day finally came. Just like we said it would. You became a big sister! Your sister Kate Jensen was born Sunday, May 13th at 10:07 pm. 

You came to visit her the very next day and, after your first visit, I don't think you were as impressed as we hoped you might be. 

But don't worry. Since then, you've warmed right up to her. You give her just as many sweet kisses and loves as you do whacks and thumps. That's probably a better record than most older siblings, right? 

I have to admit, you've taken to these changes in your life with flying colors. Other than one or two emotional breakdowns, you've been downright amazing. You often come up and snuggle right next to me while Kate is eating and I LOVE it! You are the best cuddler.

I know it's a big change. And it's going to be hard to get used to having her around. But Leah, you are going to be the best big sister. I just know it. Thanks for being patient while we all figure this out. Just one more reason you're amazing. 

I love you to the moon and back, little Leah. I always will.
