Another month gone..

Sweet Baby Girl,

How can I make time stop? I cannot believe it is already your four month birthday! Time is passing so quickly and you are growing up so fast. I love the little person you are and cherish each and every moment with you

During this past month of your life, your little personality has come shining through. You are such a strong-willed little girl - and while that sometimes makes life difficult, I know it is something I am glad you will have as you get older and learn to fend for yourself.

Your smiles and giggles are one of my favorite things about you. It absolutely melts my heart when I get home from work and walk in the door and see your face light up because Mommy is home! So many things make you laugh these days and it is fun trying to find new ways to entertain you.

You had a tough month this time around - we spent a couple of weeks in your "scared" phase and I must say I'm thankful we've more or less outgrown that. You now like to look around when you are out and take in your surroundings. You are also getting better at recognizing people even when you aren't in a familiar place. I'm so thankful you are getting excited to go places - we like taking you out and showing you the world!

That being said, you are becoming more social! It's fun to see you examining new places. One of your favorite places to take everything in is church. You are quite the little entertainer, laughing and smiling at those around you. Not only that, you are finally happy and content enough that we don't have to sit in the cry room or take you out in the middle of church! You have been such a good little girl in church the past two weekends and I've been so proud of you! Along with hamming it up, you are talking now! Your little mouth seems to be constantly running and I'm excited for the day that you can actually say words. For now though, I just want to enjoy every moment of you being my little baby.

I cannot tell you how much joy you bring into my life. We have our ups and downs, but there has never been anything I've enjoyed more than being your mommy. I love experiencing new things through you. Seeing you accomplish something new gives me such extreme satisfaction and excitement! I'm so proud of who you are and all you can do! You are truly a blessing, Ava.

As the months go on, I can only imagine what lay ahead of us. I thank the Lord everyday that we have been blessed with such a sweet, precious daughter. You are our beautiful firstborn baby and will always be so incredibly special to us. As much as I hate to see these days pass by so quickly, I'm so excited to see what the Lord has in store for you and your life!

I love you sweet baby girl!


  1. What a sweet letter to your precious girl. :) I love that picture of Ava... she's grown since we saw her two weeks ago! Such a lil cutie pie! We love her. :)

  2. Oh Sarah...what a sweet note for Miss Ava...she is so precious!!

    Get ready and hold on because now is when it starts FLYING (in a good way, though)...they just get more and more fun from here on out. I never think it's possible for me to love Kate any more than I do in one moment and then the next moment happens and I somehow do. Parenthood is so wonderful!!
