(Day 89) The magic of brothers and sisters

It is so beautiful that you have sisters old enough to hold you and rock you, to show you where your feet are, and hold you up on them

To have an older brother who can change your nappy, or sit you on his lap in the nursing chair and rock you to sleep

These people who share parents and grandparents with you, and who will be by your side throughout your life

Through every difficult moment of my pregnancy; the braxton hicks contractions, sleeplessness, heartburn and pain, I kept reminding myself that you were going to be a gift not just to us, as your parents, but to these little people who would love you just as much as we do
