My "Big Girl"

Last night, I was able to spend a lot of one-on-one time with Sarah. This doesn't happen very often because the girls nap at the same time and go to bed pretty close to the same time also. But, whenever Sarah and I have time just to ourselves I am amazed at how much she's learning everyday and how sweet of a girl she is. We colored pictures together for almost two hours, and the cutie didn't stop chattering the entire time. She told me all about the things going on in her little head, sang me songs, and talked, and talked, and talked. It was a riot, and I loved every minute of it.

Two nights ago, Emma started to cry just about when Dennis and I were headed for bed. Dennis went to get her up since she's been teething, and when he went into the girls' room Sarah was cuddling with Emma and trying to give her a drink. It was so sweet and helpful. She is the best big sister...There are so many more stories I could share about Sarah... it's so fun to sit down and remember the cute, funny, and sweet little things an "almost three-year-old" does.

I loved this post. Your little Sarah is so sweet. Aren't you just amazed at the little spirits that come to your home? She is such a good older sister! Priceless, truly priceless!

Also: Claire in her glasses makes me laugh so hard too! I can't figure out who she looks like with them on. I am probably thinking of some cartoon character. Funny little stinker.

I am so glad that you did this post. What a sweetie Sarah is! I can't wait until Hunter can tell me all about what he is thinking. I love hearing about what goes through little kids minds.

Sarah was one of my fave's in nursery! She is so independent and strong. Good qualities for a young woman to have! Those traits will serve her well in the future, I'm sure. She's so cute!
