Dear Eloise & Esther...

This is the last day of just the Eloise and Esther show. Tomorrow there will be three of you. Three sisters. How lucky I am.

For the past 4 years, I have watched your relationship with awe, love and so much pride. You both are beautiful, giving, loving, caring, sweet, special and amazing little girls. You are each other's best friends, playmates and soul mates. You do almost everything together and miss each other dearly when apart.

Having never had a sister, I cherish your relationship just as I have watched in awe at my mom's family with 6 sisters. Oh how we women hold each other up, nurture each other, and love each other whether we are 6 or 60.

I am so proud of you both.

You have been so excited these past many months waiting your new sister's arrival. I cannot wait to introduce you tomorrow. I can already see how she is going to fit right in to your little club. I can see her sleeping between you two in the bed you already share. Seeing 3 spooning little bodies in the Winter's cold nights. I can see you including her in your dress-up games, your fairy princess balls and your proper tea parties. Holding hands for walks through the neighborhoods. Sharing her toddlerhood of discovery.

Eloise and Esther, you have changed my life in a way I could never describe. You both are just pure happiness for me bottled up in the most beautiful girls I have ever known.

Thank you for making motherhood so amazing and for sharing your sisterhood with me.

I love you,
Mom

How sweet and so you:) Some day after growing up and going through the "teen years" - I hope they will realize your love and devotion. It has truly been unconditional and fun to watch. I love the picture and soon there will be three. I will be there soon to see you all. Hugs to all

That was such a sweet letter! And you're right... they are going to do all those things. I just love it when I see Addie tromping through the house in some too-big dress-up dress that Nina has put on her. Cracks me up! It is so sweet though. You will love your three girlie family!!
