Five years is not a very long time. In fact, it's relatively short. But when you are only five years old, it is a life-time, literally. And when you've waited a whole life time for a baby sister, and had to patiently endure and love two little brothers in the mean time---well, you're going to love that little sister to pieces!

You're going to ask your mama all day long if you can hold her again. And when your mama says 'yes', you're going to lay down on the floor and let that sweet little creature who smells like baby lotion fall asleep on you and snooze for a while. Because hey, she's your baby sister, and you've waited five years for this!

You're going to make sure that you are the first one to read 'Charlotte's Web' to her, because that's what big sisters do.

And when your mama announces that it's time to let Leanna try her first milk out of a bottle, so that your mama can finally, maybe, have a date-night all alone with Daddy for the first time in months, well-----you happily volunteer to be the one to feed the bottle to the baby. You smile and know for sure that it is your loving hand that helped the baby to feel so comfortable with her first time with a bottle.

And then, you will yell to your mama to 'quick, snap a picture!' when you realize that you and all your siblings are lined up in a row reading---because hey, after all, you do love your brothers too :)

Precious memories.
