Today you are 3, and in about a month, you will be 3 1/2. Where has the time gone? It’s like everybody always says…you blink and your baby has grown up. I don’t know how old you’ll be when you read this, or where you’ll be, or even if you like me at the moment or not! But, I had to take a few minutes and tell you something. Just so you won’t ever forget.
You are an amazing little girl.
This morning, the three of us went to the hospital to get Eliza’s blood drawn again. You were hovering between being sad that Eliza had to have the needle stick thing, and being a little happy that it wasn’t you having to get the needle. You figured Eliza would cry, but as you were talking to her, explaining the procedure, you made sure to point out to her, that we would take care of her and make it better. That Mommy and Hannah would both give her kisses and soothe her. As nurse after nurse tried to get Eliza’s blood drawn, you kept watch over your little sister, making sure she could see you and making sure she knew she could cry if she wanted to.
When it finally became too much for Eliza and she started to cry, you started soothing her with, “there there Eliza, it will be okay, it won’t hurt much longer.” Even though the nurses were so proud of Eliza for letting them draw the blood, I was so proud of you for being a big sister. For being concerned with how Eliza was doing. For being a good girl during the 2 hour wait. For being you. Although, you wouldn’t be you without the 1732 questions you managed to get in during those 2 hours. But dear Hannah, that is you. You have so many questions in you just itching to get out. Sometimes you’re asking the next one before I’ve even opened my mouth to answer the first one.
After your nap this afternoon, we were sitting on the couch together talking. I told you how proud I was of you for being so good this morning. You leaned in for a hug and said, “Aww, thanks Mommy, I love you.” That moment right there earned you another 1732 questions.
