Mom's bike helmetBaby, this is hard for me, this not comparing you to your sister thing.
I’m working so hard to know you for you.

But as my only experience with gestating comes from your sister, it’s all a comparison.
You’re sitting different than she did, further in the front.
Your energy is more, intense.
You’re more active.

We’re excited that you’re so excited about being made.

My mom (your Grandmama) did an exceptional job of keeping things fair, even and separate for us. She spent so much energy making sure birthdays, Christmasses and accolades were equal between us. We noticed. We appreciated.

We will try our best to live up to Grandmama’s example.
Separate, even and fair.

Hooray for replies!
