A Letter to Elliana


Dear Elliana,

It's been a while since I've written you a letter. I know I write them monthly, but I feel as though these kind of letters are different. Just my thoughts... to you. At this moment in time. At this stage in our life.

The now.

And the now? Is me sitting on my break at work with a large cup of ice in hand and this strong urge to write. To you. My sweet precious baby daughter.

I can't ever stop thinking about you. I'm with you all day. Every moment of every day. We are each other's best friend. And yet... the minute you are sleeping, I think about you even more.

I think about how you're sleeping. Whether you are nuzzled up at the far end, or closer to the door. Whether you are cradling your blanket or your stuffed animals. If your mouth is open or closed. And your sweet baby cheeks. Oh those sweet baby cheeks.

If I could just hold you forever and kiss on those cheeks, I would be complete.

I love you so much Elliana. You are my world. Our world. You have done things to us, our lives, and our hearts, that I never thought would be possible.

Every day with you is a new adventure. Every day with you is a challenge to make it better than the last. Every day is so special, unique, and everything I ever hoped and dreamed of in motherhood.

I could kiss you all day. I could hug you for eternity. I could spend every minute of every day showing you just how much I love you.

So that's that. That's all I wanted to say.

I love you.
I love you.
I love you.

May I always show you just how much.


p.s. Happy 1.5 years old my tiny precious baby

  2. First the comment above is too sweet. Second, loved this letter! And glad to know I'm not the only crazy mama who thinks about their child even MORE after they've gone to sleep. Happy 1.5 to Miss E, she's so blessed to have you as her mama and best friend!
