the three-year old
yesterday you turned three years old. i still remember the day mommy and daddy brought you home from the hospital, when you were one day old. i got to carry you to their room while you were sleeping, and i remember that it felt like i was carrying a precious treasure. that's what it was like to be your big sister for the first time.
since that day, you've gotten so big. you are cuddly and your laugh is contagious. you like being outside and going to the beach in the summer. you ask for me to "sing-a-song" every night before bed, and sometimes i don't do it often enough. because i know that one day you won't ask for songs anymore. you like to be silly, you like to be adorable - well, i'm not sure about the last one, but it must be true, right?
and one day, you'll be all grown up, and i pray that you'll be a man of God, and one special girl will thank Him every day for you.
but until then, i'll be that special girl - your big sister.
