One of the greatest joys in my life is you! I cannot tell you how amazing it is to be your Mama! I dreamed of the day that I would get to meet my first child, and from the moment I saw little, tiny you, I have been in love!
I love how you love me and need me. I love how you turn your eyes toward my voice when you hear me come into the room. I love how you snuggle right up under my chin--like that space was made just for you. I love how your sweet breath smells. I love how your hair smells after a bath. I love rushing home from work to hold you and smell you and hug you. I love how you fit just perfectly on my lap. I love how sometimes the most comfortable place for you is on my chest listening to my heartbeat.
I can't wait for all of the things we will get to do together... watching cartoons, playing in my classroom, going to movies, painting our nails, playing dress-up, dancing. I can't wait to teach you all of the things I want you to know... how to love Jesus, how to be a friend, how to serve others, what it means to love, how wonderful your family is. I am so excited to see you grow and become a beautiful young lady! ...let's just not do all of those things just yet, though. I'm kinda enjoying holding you in my arms right now. :)
Thank you for showing me what it means to be selfless and to love unconditionally! I am amazed each day by you... you are my world, precious girl.
I love you!
