Dear Aida....

Dear Aida,

It's almost impossible to put into words how much joy you have brought into Mommy and Daddy's life over the past 3.5 years. You really are such a joy everyday and make my heart feel like it's so full it will burst with how much I love you. Tomorrow, you become a big sister. From one who knows ( I am a big sister too) this is going to be ONE of the greatest experiences of your life.

I know you are going to be the best big sister ever. I know you are going to protect and love your brother so so much; and by the way he already reacts to your voice...I know he is going to love and adore you too.

Thank you for being a million times better than the best daughter we could of ever imagined. We are so proud of you and pray that your life becomes even better with your brother every day.

I can't wait to watch you "teach him the ropes" I can't wait for you to hold him and rock him. I know you are really excited about rocking him too because you have demonstrated for me how you are going to do this -- and while your technique makes me a little nervous, your excitement about meeting "your baby Christopher" as you call him, makes my heart smile.

I promise you this is going to be another part of your life and you will be thankful -- as I am, that you have a little brother -- no matter how annoying he will be sometimes. Try not to push around too much, try to have patients when he wants to play with your toys, try not to be annoyed when he wants to hang out with you and your friends and when he does gross things just to annoy you. It really will be true that he will adore you and look up to you. Love him, guide him and let him be him. I know that you will do a great job with this...remember "you are a bad mamma jamma" and you can do anything. As much as you will both be different I know you will have the same warm and loving heart that you have right now.

Mommy and Daddy love you very much. We love you more than anything in the whole world and we are so excited about how your life is going to change for the better tomorrow. You are already the best Big Sister in the world.

Until then....

Mommy and Daddy
