Hi Monster

Hi Monster.

We can tell you really love having Sheriah with us.
You get excited when you see her...
and even started saying "Riah".

Sharing your toys has been easy. 
She has been teaching you all kinds of new things.
You watch her constantly - always learning.

Sharing your snacks is so much fun. 
You both end up is fits of giggles when you try to feed Sheriah.
Last night you kept switch popcycles...
Bite, switch, giggle, repeat and then a sloppy kiss.

You have been a champ, taking it in stride.
But as wonderful as it is going, I know it has been hard for you too.

Last night and this morning, I can tell it is bugging you a little.
You went from ignoring mommy, to wanting me to hold you all the time.

In the middle of the night, you cried out for us....
over and over.
I think you just needed to know we were there...
and of course we were.

You are such a routine kind of girl...
even though you pretend to love surprises...
this one is sticking around and things are all mixed up.

One-on-one time isn't as free flowing as before...
and when daddy comes home, he has three girls to say hello to.

Change is hard...
sharing is even harder.

We just wanted to say, that we are incredibly proud of you monster.
You welcomed Sheriah with open arms and popsicle kisses.

One day you will understand how important those kisses are...
and you will be so proud of you too.

and

and then, she {snapped}
