My sisters took me out on Saturday as an early birthday present (my birthday is still a week away..and also, they also got me a Chi hair straighter...the LOVE. Oh my. My hair will forever be grateful to them!!) Anyway, we headed out for lunch and a movie (we saw Love Happens...which was cute. I debated over some other movies, but when it came down to it, I know Nick would NEVER see Love Happens, so the decision was made) We had such a great time. Laughing and talking at lunch. Laughing (and maybe talking a little) during the movie. Laughing and talking the entire way home. And it got me thinking.

I love my sisters. I love them more than I can really tell you. I love them like they are apart of myself. I guess, actually, the are a part of myself. A part that I cannot live without. I know everyone is not as close to their siblings as I am, and I know I am so so lucky. My sisters are my very best friends. My closest confidants, my truest defenders. They will fight to the death to defend me, even if they know I am wrong. They love Nick like a brother and they love Henry like their own child. They are my sweet and perfect sisters.

And as I think of them, I realize how much I want more children. Not in the way I wanted Henry. I wanted Henry for me and for Nick. I wanted Henry...more than I have ever wanted anything. It was the most selfish desire. I NEEDED him. And now, when I think of having more, I know I WANT them. I know my heart will grow and I will love them as I love Henry. I will be unable to think of my life before them. But for now, my heart is full. For now my heart is happy with my perfect boy. Now, I want other children for me, but I need them for Henry. For him to have a chance at having what my sisters and I have. That very perfect best friend. That true confidant. That person who will defend you to the death, even when they know you are wrong. I hope we are able to give him siblings, because I want the best for him. And the best for me are my sisters. I cannot imagine my life without them.

I love you girls. Thanks for my perfect birthday gift and my perfect day with you two!
