Sweet Baby Girl-
I cannot believe how fast time is going by. I cannot believe you are already 9 weeks old and growing bigger and stronger every day. I feel like just yesterday I was complaining that I had another 4 weeks left and you were wrecking havoc on my back! But now I look at you while you’re sleeping with your angelic face and chubby little hands and can’t imagine my life without you. Sometimes I have to put you down because I just want to kiss you so much I could squeeze you! I feel like I want to freeze time or at least just slow it down to remember all these small things. Maybe thats why I’m writing this – just a way for me to remember the sweetness of my baby girl..
I love the way you smile in your sleep when I watch you in the middle of the night as the light of your brothers monitor softly lights the room. I love the way you sleep with your hands folded together like little prayer hands – it looks so peaceful. I love the way your smile puts a twinkle in your beautiful blue eyes that can light up an entire room. I love the sweetness of your baby breath. I love the way you wiggle when you smile. I love the way you look at your daddy. I love the way you let your brother give you hugs and kisses (even if he’s a little rough sometimes!) I love the way you look up to him – as if you already know he’s going to be one of your best friends. I love how long and beautiful your eyelashes are. I love the way you snuggle close when you fall asleep in my arms. I love the way you kick your piggies when you’re happy. And most recently – I love the way you tell me stories with your sweet little voice that just melts my heart… I wish I could bottle these memories up and save them for years from now when you’re grown up and it’s hard to remember how little and pure you were!
I love you Molly Lillian. These first 9 weeks have been amazing, I can’t wait to see what’s waiting for us in the future.
And to my first sweet baby..
I cannot believe how big YOU are getting too! Everyday you ask me something or tell me a story that I just cannot believe you are big enough to know or understand. You have grown into such an amazing little two year old. Your questions about how the world works reminds me of your innocence yet your witty remarks remind me that you are growing up so fast too! Your beautiful smile and adorable voice is enough to make me want to bend any rules just to make you smile! Your inquisitive mind is constantly at work always figuring out the next project. Your chubby little hands have grown into strong little boy hands that you love to trace on paper – I am going to frame your handprints so I always remember just how little you were. Your smile can warm a room more then anyone I know. Your giggle is so contagious and so precious, I can’t imagine a day without it! You are so caring about your sister it makes me incredible grateful to give the gift of being siblings. I love the way you tell me about your day and all your favorite parts. And most of all, I love the way you look at me when you run up to me in the middle of the day just to say ‘I love you Mommy.’
I love you too Jackson David. Thank you for being such a blessing to our family.
sweet baby girl. sweet big boy.
