Charlotte's big sister

Katherine is completely in love with Charlotte. I have yet to see a time when she has shown any sort of jealousy or anger towards her sister(I am sure that will come though). It often brings tears to my eyes to listen to her comments or watch her interact with Charlotte. When we found out about Charlotte's Down syndrome, one of my worries was how this would effect her relationship with her siblings. I no longer have any worries. I obviously can't see the future, but truly feel it will all be okay.

Katherine's 5th birthday is the day that Charlotte's heart will be fixed. It kills me to think that I probably won't see my little girl on her birthday. Obviously we didn't have a choice, and I know that Katherine will be fine, but it still hurts. Thank you to all of you that are making Katherine's day special tomorrow when I can't.

Five years ago I was just beginning labor with my little girl. It is amazing how much has happened in those five short years.

Happy 5th birthday baby, mommy loves you!
