Dear little Amelia,

You turned two months old yesterday and are growing like a little flower.  Ever since you first lifted your head up at the hospital when you were just a day old, we knew you were going to be a strong little thing, and we were right.  These days, you love to lie on your back and stare up at objects, usually a toy or a ceiling fan, kicking those little legs in excitement. Our favorite is when you flash that gorgeous smile that us.  Your eyes will sparkle and you’ll coo little “oohs” and “ahhs” with such purpose… I have no doubt that you and I will always have a lot to say to each other, and I can’t wait for those days.

Your big sister is incredibly smitten with you.  Every chance she gets, she is peeking over my shoulder as I nurse you, or asking if she can help care for you, or putting her little face up to yours to plant a tiny sister kiss on your cheek.  The other day, Everly was taking a bath and I decided to dip you in with her for a few moments.  Everly thought it was the neatest thing ever.  While you’re much too tiny now, I see plenty of bubble baths with you two in the near future.

My little love, you bring so much joy to this family of ours.  Thank you so much for choosing us to be yours.

Your Mama
