Isabelle made us very proud. Being a big sister has in many ways brought her to a whole new level.
It took her just a day, at most, 2 days to be fully toilet trained. Less than a week, to wake up in the morning with her pants dry. No fuss, no hassle. In an instant, she transformed into a responsible and independent big sister. She did her job very well.
When I had to cook or get something done at home, she willingly helped to entertain her little sister. She would put aside her toys and whatever she is doing, to distract Gabrielle so that I can quickly get things done.
Most of all, she amazes me with her understanding and forgiving self, at such tender age. I drown myself in guilt, everyday without fail that she waits for me patiently while I have to attend to Gabrielle before her turn comes.
Isabelle, my little precious, Mummy and Daddy is very very very and extremely happy and proud of you. Please forgive especially Mummy if I ever made you feel neglected. Please remember you are never, never, ever, the second best. You are and always will be my very precious and you will always hold the most special place in my heart. Mummy loves you.
