I found the poem my 11 year old wrote for her new baby sister.  The kids call her by her middle name, which is why there is an "A" as opposed to "K", like I will be writing. :) 

You are a wonderful baby, A.
God gave you to us as a blessing.
Your eyes are as blue as the Heaven
you came from.  You have stardust
in your eyes.  Your hair is the color of
the paved streets in Heaven, and your face is
like a sunbeam directly from God.
You are warm because you were sitting
in God's lap before He sent you
down to us.  You smell like the flowers of
Heaven.  When you are a little older, you will
smile and laugh, sounding like angel babies do.
When you get your first tooth, it will be like the
little pearls from God's palace wall.
One day, you'll grow up and have babies of your
own.  And you'll say, "This baby is a little bit of
Heaven.  I wonder if I was like that too!"
You were.  All babies are.  Even the ones who fly.

Awwww...that is so very sweet. I know your sweet little baby will treasure it when she is older. :)

Congratulations on your sweet new baby girl.

This brought tears to my eyes! I love it! What an amazing girl to write such special words - especially in an age where most 11 years olds are too busy with boy bands to notice their baby sister. I pray that these sisters will always cherish one another.
