Dear Big Brothers

Dear Sawyer and Graham,

It's time to welcome our new baby sister.  You guys have been so sweet and so excited about her.  You are old enough now to fully realize what is happening and that's been really fun.  You guys love to feel her move in my belly and ask questions about her all the time.  I'm so excited to watch you guys love on your newest little sister.  You both adore MK and take such awesome care of her and I know you'll do the same for this baby girl.  She is so lucky to have you both protecting her!

Sawyer, at 6 years old, you are smart, thoughtful, athletic, competitive, and a little bit quiet.  You were definitely made to be the oldest and you lead your siblings so well.  It's a big responsibility to be the example and I'm so glad it's you leading the way.  I'm so thankful you are full of grace because we are figuring out this parenting gig with you.  And it's not always easy but you are always quick to forgive and you never take things too personal and I'm grateful for that.  I think you are so awesome and will always be your biggest fan!

Graham, at almost 5, you are loving, funny, kind and smart.  You bring so much life and fun into our family.  You are silly and always making us laugh.  You fit right in playing baseball with Sawyer or having a tea party with Miller Kate.  You have the ability to adapt and draw people into to you.  You are so special and such a perfect little and big brother.  I know you are going to adore your new baby sister as you are probably the most excited.  You've asked the most questions and are always wanting to feel her move, etc.  It's been so, so sweet and will be one of my favorite memories from this pregnancy.  I think you are so awesome and will always be your biggest fan!

Siblings are such a gift and I'm so thankful for the 4 of you.  I pray we are raising you guys to recognize the gift you have in each other and a loyalty and love between you 4 that is like none other.

With all my love forever and ever!
