Dear Sadie Beth @ 5 Months

On another blog I read often the dad writes a letter to his son on the blog each month. I thought this would be a great way to list all the things the girls are doing each month and to help me and them remember the cute things they do.

Dear Sweet Sadie Beth,

It doesn't seem like it has been 5 months since you were born. You are starting to do so many cute things and I am falling in love with you more and more each day (didn't think that was possible).

I LOVE.....

  • the way you smile all over your face

  • your sweet coos (even in the middle of the night)

  • the way you wake up with a smile on your face (even in the middle of the night)

  • the way you and Mili laugh at each other

  • the way you pull off your bib and chew on it

  • the way you cross your feet

  • the way you look when you are with your daddy (and the way Daddy looks when he holds you)

  • the way you touch my face with your soft, fluffy hands

  • the way you grab my hair as if you are trying to hug me

  • the way your cool cheeks feel on my lips as I kiss them 100's of times a day

  • the way your hair sticks up

  • the way your long black eyelashes look on your pale skin

  • the small dimple in your lower right cheek

  • the way you tilt your head to one side when you get excited

  • the way you hold your hands when you drink your bottle

  • that you are starting to grab things

  • to kiss your bare feet

  • the way you hold on to my arm or hand while falling asleep

  • the way you put your hands on your knees when sitting in your chair (but it looks too much like a big girl, so stop it)

  • it when we sleep together (shhh don't tell Daddy since we are suppose to be training you to transision to the bed from your

  • the way you already love me!

Sadie will appreciate this very much when she is our age. I found a letter my mom wrote me a few years ago in my baby book and also one from my dad. I will cherish those forever.
