One Month

Grace,

In just one short month you have managed to capture our hearts. Your big brothers adore you. Your daddy is smitten. And I feel like you have been with me all my life. A little angel that has come to life. You are a dream come true. An answer to all of our prayers.

You have grown so much, and have accomplished so much for such a young lady. You've been to the county fair. You've been to church, school, and all the local parks. You have had your first bath, your first smile, and you can hold your head up like a champ. You eat like a pro and are gaining weight like a good little girl. And just recently you slept for 5 and a half hours in a row at night. Thank you.

But more than all of that you are Grace. I can't believe I have my baby Grace. I knew that was the perfect name for you the minute I saw you. You are patient and sweet. You are engaging and social. You are like sunshine. Everyone melts in your warmth. You are all smiles all the time. You have so quickly become a part of this family that it is difficult to remember a time when you were not with us. Perhaps because you were always in our hearts. What a blessing you are.

Happy one month birthday, darling. It has been one absolutely precious month to me.

Thank you, Grace, for being my little girl. I love you so much.
Love,
Your Mumma

There ya go - the very best kind of baby. Fat, sassy and just plain beautiful! She's so cute -just want to reach across the screen, into the monitor, pick her up and snuggle and cuddle the living daylights out of her. At that perfect age too -where she's beginning to develop a tad of her personality, smiling and all that good stuff but yet, small and undeveloped enough still too where you can put her down and know she'll still be in the same place when you come back to her too!
Peacde and enjoy every single minute with her now.

So sweet! I can't believe it has been a month already. I hope the next few months go that quickly for me, and very slowly for you. Why does the time have to go by so fast when they are so little?

Did I ever send you an invite to my blog when I went private? If not, please email me at kelleybirrelli@yahoo.com. I also started another one that's public, but with code names. Anyway, I'm thrilled you are so happy with your sweet little daughter. I feel exactly the same way about Rachel. :)

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
