Dear Siri,

You’re 17 months old today and an amazing big sister! You love Cas! It started by you making a surprised face and running to the stairs when you heard him on the monitor when he wakes up. Then you’d sit with him on his playmat. You can’t ever get close enough, it seems as if you try to sit on him half of the time! Then one day during playtime on the mat his hand reached out and touched your face and you laughed- you loved it. Then you kept putting your face to his hand and thought it was the funniest thing! You kiss him, point out his features (eyes, ears, nose, mouth, hand, feet). You’ll bring me his blankie, socks, clothes, etc. You are always trying to help. You are truly an amazing little girl. I am so blessed to have you!

You started gymnastics two weeks ago and although you’re the youngest in your class, you love it. You are so smart and so good- have I mentioned that before? I can’t tell you how many people have told us how happy you are. Seriously, hundreds of strangers! Wherever we go, you give everyone a big smile and wave, sometimes you say hi, and you usually always say bye. You’ve put a smile on many faces.

I love you. You are a very special little girl.
