Tomorrow, your life is going to change forever. Tomorrow, Mommy is going to have a baby - your baby sister. Up until this point, you have been the center of our lives, our only child. I know that since you are almost 4, you will still have some of these memories when you are older, and that makes me happy. I know that I remember the times I spent with my Mommy & Daddy before Auntie Kellie was born, so I'm glad you'll have those memories too.
I'm pretty sure that every Mommy worries about what her first baby will think when she brings home the 2nd baby. I worry that you will think that you will think I don't love you anymore. I worry that you will think I'm ignoring you when I'm wrapped up taking care of a fussy baby. I worry that you think you won't have any special one-on-one time with Mommy & Daddy anymore.
But I also know that by giving you a sibling, we are giving you one of the greatest gifts we ever could. A sibling means that you have a lifelong partner. Someone who is always there for you, whether it be to give you support through a difficult time, to steal your stuff while you are away, or to make you laugh when you want to cry. Siblings are there for sharing toys, or for stealing toys when you're not looking. Either way, siblings make life more colorful, and I'm beyond happy that this is something you will experience.
I want you to know that even though there is a new baby in the house, that you will ALWAYS be my first baby. No matter how old you are (yes, even when you are 40 and rolling your eyes at me), you will still be my baby. You will still be that baby who giggled like crazy when we would make funny faces and silly noises at you. You will still be that baby who rolled around on the floor to get to toys like a fuzzy little ball. That little baby who loved Cars and Backyardigans. And even still, that little baby who grew into a tenacious toddler - strong willed and independent.
I want you to know that even though your sister will always be in the picture, there will still be plenty of opportunities for you to have special time with Mommy & Daddy just you and us. I've been told that having multiple children makes your heart expand in ways you never thought possible, and I know that will happen. My heart and my love for you will only grow bigger when your sister is around. You will always be my little Noogle, my silly goose and my buddy.
I know that you are going to be a fantastic big brother. Even though you race around like a superhero and jump around like a monkey after 4 cups of coffee, I know that you have a gentle heart and a loving soul. I know that you will protect her, show her the ways of the world, and probably sometimes annoy her like crazy. But that is what's fun about having a sibling :)
So even though tomorrow is going to rock your little world, I want you to know that even though many things are going to be different, a lot will still be the same. Such as the fact that I love you more than I ever thought I could love someone, and you will always be the little boy who made me a mommy.
I love you so much my little Nugget...
