You're still the baby of the family, still showered with plenty of hugs, kisses, and tickles - the adoption didn't change that. You still have an ability to make everyone talk in weird baby voices when they play with you. But...you're still growing up. Too fast, in my opinion. Little girl, you learn new words everyday and you
know how to go on the "big girl potty." You and you're new sister are always together, both learning, in you're own way, how to grow up. (Just don't grow up too fast, please.) Last night, it was just you and me on the swings, and you let me snap away while you played. And you told me about flowers and swings and boo-boos in your little girl voice. Playing with you was my favorite part of the day.
