10 weeks

Dearest Grae,

It has already been ten weeks! The most precious ten weeks of my life, I might add. I have wanted to be a Mommy for as long as I can remember-but Motherhood has proven to be even better than I ever imagined.   I still have a hard time wrapping my brain around the fact that you are really mine.  You are a part of me, and a part of Daddy.  You grew inside of my belly. I am still replaying your birth in my mind at least once a day.  It is such a natural part of life, yet when I look at you- its hard to comprehend, and even harder to put into words.

You are growing. Fast.  And I couldn’t be happier…Even if there is a part of me that already misses the tininess that you were.  It still wants you to fit into your newborn clothes that you outgrew so quickly.  It wants you to fit comfortably into the nook of my arm with your body curled up fitting the length of my forearm… thankfully, however; the rest of me delights in watching you grow and learn new things.

Today, you giggled in your sleep. I am sure these giggles are soon to follow the smiles that you are generously blessing us with already. They’ve been coming for a while, but it’s only recently that I am beginning to feel that they are more recognition and less instinct.  When Daddy and I laugh, you grin from ear to ear.

You might be growing out of your clothes everyday, but you will always be my baby.  You already have a personality that does not ask for much but is very clear about your needs.  The headmaster of my school tells you that you are already a great self-advocate. ;).  I absolutely love it.

I don’t know how you could be anymore perfect, but you find a way every single day.  I cannot wait to grow with you, my darling. You have already taught me more about myself, about life, about family, about love than I learned in my whole 27 years before you were born.

Happy 10 weeks, my angel!

I love you more than life.

Your Momma
