"Your big sister Cami had been requesting a little sister for ages—specifically asking your daddy and me to order one online. While Cami’s understanding of baby delivery clearly differed from ours, we did share her hopes for another little being to raise and love—and lo and behold you chose us as your family unit, fulfilled all of our dreams at once, and completed our little household.
Your presence was felt well before my pregnancy test read positive, but at 12 weeks gestation, you really made yourself known when, here in our kitchen, your daddy and I opened the sealed gender-reveal envelope from the doctor, and the tiny folded piece of paper read in pink all-caps, “GIRL.” I literally dropped to my knees with overwhelming joy, and your daddy and I shared uncontrollable laughter, tears, and a trembling embrace that lasted a good 15 minutes.
Fast forward to April 12, 2017. You came into the world eight days early looking around the delivery room so serene, pensive, and alert—undoubtedly cut from the same cloth as your older sister. The following day we brought Cami to the hospital to meet you for the very first time, and when the nurse rolled your bassinet into Mommy’s room, your sister’s gaze widened with wonder and she whispered so as not to wake you: “She’s the littlest girl I’ve ever seen! I love her.” Your daddy and I wiped our eyes more than a few times and gave Cami the pink plush bunny you “picked out just for her.” She couldn’t believe that you already knew her taste in stuffed animals at such an early age, and we as your parents couldn’t believe the connection you girls had from day one of your life." -@nickisebastian you really got us with this one!
