I don't even have words to express how excited, humbled, blessed I feel right now. It's true, Lilah is officially a big sister and she is so thrilled! She has talked non-stop about her little sister, ever since she found out about her last evening. When I was putting her to bed last night I saw her polaroid instant camera sitting on her nightstand and asked her what it was sitting out for, she said: "I'm going to take a picture of my sister!" She went on to tell me that when she wakes in the morning, she'll go get her sister out of the crib, carry her downstairs and they'll have a little snuggle in her bed. It completely melted my heart. We got our new little ones photos today and we are so taken with her - man she is SO cute! Anyway, I met Lilah after school with a photo in my hand to show her, she looked at the photo and exclaimed, "Oh! Does she look like that?" To which I replied, "Yes, that is her!" I thought I'd managed her expectations as to what size her 'baby sister' would be, but maybe I didn't do a good enough job on that! She moved on pretty quickly though, asking me why her little sister was wearing snow pants! She even thought the white part on the bottom of her pants was probably snow! The girl really notices detail! Anyway, Lilah is now all armed and equipped to head into school tomorrow and tell the class her wonderful news... all decked out in her "big sister in charge" t-shirt! She's been rhyming her sisters name over and over all afternoon, Yang Qi (Chee). I think she's going to be an amazing Jie Jie. Since I want this to be Lilah's personal blog, I have another one set up for her mei mei, Jiang Yang Qi, soon to be Phebe Jayne Yang Qi. You can check it out here. Have I mentioned how excited we all are?! Eeeeek!
