Dear Baby Girl – My First Born,
As I sit here writing you this little letter, I am more aware than ever that these will be our last few moments of just “us two.” Soon, very soon, your little world will forever be changed.
This letter is not an easy one to write, it’s filled with bittersweet emotions. It was you, you baby girl who made me a mother. Your little hands were the first to reach for me, knowing me as your safe haven. You were the first to call me “mama.” In our 3 years together we have had some amazing adventures. You are the one who inducted me into the motherhood tribe. You have taught me how to be a mother.
My sweet baby girl, you have long lost all of your baby features. There are no more bottles or pacifiers. Your hair has grown to frame your little face. You love imaginary play and often proclaim you are a princess with superpowers, as you dance around the house. Singing has become a favorite pastime of yours. “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” is your absolute favorite to sing! Little girl, you often request songs for your Dad and I to sing as well. How could we say no to that sweet, squeaky voice?
Sweet baby girl of mine, I want to take some time to reassure you of just how much your Daddy and I love you! Over the last few months there have been several changes made within our home and I can see how aware you are. I want you to know you have always been our first thought before making each change. As I write this letter, you are currently snuggled up in your big girl bed, where you have slept the past few months. While this transition was fairly seamless for you, your soft requests for your crib didn’t go unnoticed. We wanted to give you time to adjust before seeing someone else occupy the crib that was once yours.
While you are no longer the little pink bundle I brought home, you will always be my baby. Even when you proclaim loudly, “I do it myself!” You are still my baby. Even when you put your shoes on and jump up shouting, “I’m good to go!” You are still my baby. Even when you say, “step stool please,” because you want to help me cook. Or, “I have taste,” as I begin mixing ingredients together. You will always be my baby.
So as we prepare for the arrival of your baby sister, please know little one, that I love you both so much! And you will always be my baby!
