Dearest Lady Bug,
I wanted to write to you so that you would always know, this week (you turned 1 1/2 yesterday!) was the first week you slept with a blanket and pillow. Your head snuggled in and your limbs curled up in the warmth were enough to keep my heart beating hard. You’re precious, amazing, and growing up too fast. I love you. There is nothing more to be said, but these are just a glimpse of the things that bring us joy:
You adore Elmo, and dancing to whatever he sings.
You love to play “boo” with Daddy, and it is amazing to watch you learn how to hide and play games.
You wave and smile at almost everyone near you. You’re not afraid of people staring at your beauty.
You make me wonder what I enjoyed about life before you.
We are so blessed to have you.
Sweet dreams, angel. May you someday understand how beloved you are.
~Mom and Dad
