How do people make it through life without a sister?

As everyone know from a previous post, Lauren and Aaron had their baby about four...five weeks ago. He is adorable. Aidan is so cute and fun to cuddle...when he doesn't spit up on you. He's not very chubby which I'm sure will soon change but he is still such an adorable little one. Shifting gears, kinda. This isn't really about Aidan it's about Lauren. She's such an amazing sister, mother, friend, therapist (guessing about that last one) But she is such a hard worker and she never doesn't anything half way. Can you imagine being a mother to a baby that can't go out into the world, taking classes at BYU for you doctorate, being a loving devoted wife, and best friend to your needy little sister? She is such a great person. Yeah we don't hang out as much as we used to but I understand. She does her homework reading while feeding Aidan, cooks while he's napping, and prays that his naps will be more than 5 minutes so she can maybe take one herself. She runs on such little sleep and food but she doesn't show that she's tired or that she feels ugly that day. Lauren is an amazing mother and I love her. She is my best friend and I'm so glad that I am able to share the experiences we have had with each other. So Lauren, I love you and you're amazing I hope you know that.

Having a sister is like having a best friend you can't get rid of. You know whatever you do, they'll still be there.
