Eleanor, Meet Your Big Sister
Well, it looks like you have a big sister looking out for you. Her name is Leah, and when she heard about your story in the NICU about a week ago, she recreated you using a baby doll, a toy stethoscope, and... a Scuba diving regulator? That's ingenuity, right there. Anyway, she's been taking close care of you since then.
It's curious to see her watching over you in this way: a young girl giving generously her concern to another little girl that she's never met before. It's a beautiful thing, and its a story I will tell you well before you read any of Dad's boring letters.
Oh, and did I mention she likes the name Eleanor better than Ellie? I think I do, too.
