I knew as soon as I found out it was a girl.
I saw pictures in my mind of a chubby little 2 year old staring up at her 4 1/2 year old big sister, standing in front of me and Kevin, wearing mismatched outfits with tutus, and singing for us as we sit on the couch and watch and oooh and aaah at their performance.
Ruby would be a little bossy, telling her sister what moves to do and when.
"Nora! Turn around! Arms up, Nora" and Nora would doing what she could to please her sister, but maybe not quite as into the performance as Ruby is.
It's already starting.
Ruby is the best big sister ever. Never an ounce of jealousy - talks to her sister like I talk to her. With such a big girl tone of voice and stance.
And Nora thinks her big sister is just the coolest thing she's ever seen.
I love you girls. May you be best friends forever.
