Dear Sweet Baby Girl



Dear Sweet Baby Girl,

I cannot tell you how blessed I am to have you in my life. Your constant smiles and cheerful disposition light up my every day. You are not selfish with your happiness; you share your joy with everyone around you. The snort in your laugh makes me want to squeeze you tight and never let go. Your sweet baby smell invokes such strong, warm and happy feelings in my memory and I wish it would never disappear. Your eagerness to stand up and walk breaks my heart just a little bit; please don't grow up too fast. Last night when you awoke for the third time in less then as many hours I wanted to be angry but I couldn't bring myself to feel it. Instead I brought you into bed, nursed you again and snuggled with you for a good 10 minutes. The fact that I can console your crying just by picking you and cuddling with you makes me feel like superwoman. I held you and created yet another memory that will last me a thousand lifetimes.

Whether I have been gone for 10 minutes or 2 hours, the smile you greet me with when I walk in the door melts my heart. I can never entertain a negative or depressing thought when I am near you.

I love you baby girl, thank you for coming to our family. You have changed it forever and for the better.
