Big Sister is off from school today (Veteran's Day) so I thought I would post this picture of her visiting Little Sister while still in the NICU. Big Sis was a trooper throughout the NICU stay. She was shuffled around from friend to babysitter to extra hours at preschool. It was tough on everyone. On weekends, she went with us and after spending a few minutes with her siblings, she would be ready to watch movies. I was finally happy that she could watch television all day long and be entertained. The nurses often commented on how great she was. She was so quiet, as if there was no 4 year old sitting in the corner. We had a great set up that included her own princess chair, her portable DVD player and backpack full of stuff to do. Most days, movies was all we needed.
I will have to look for the picture the nurses took....
People often ask me what the hardest thing is about having triplets...my response is not having enough time for my five year old and hearing her say it.
I love you Isabella and I promise this will get easier for all of us!
