my little 'num num'

Dear little fetus, I think it’s so amazing you’re inside my body and growing bigger every day. You’re only the size of a lime and your tiny little fingers can already open and close. Your big sister Elle says ‘hi’ to you most mornings. She waves her little arm in front of you and say […]

you will always be my little girl

My dear little bee, It was only 8 ½ hours ago I last saw you. Yet as I look at you standing in front of the fridge, negotiating with daddy about what to have for dinner, you seem different. You’re the same size as this morning. Yet you appear to be a little taller, a […]

Beautiful letter Amy! Congratulations! You are a great mother and I look forward to reading twice as many wonderful words of wisdom you will now be writing. I can share your sentiments. I will always remember the day I came home with my son. In one instant, my little girl shifted in front of my eyes. I knew it was coming but when I saw them side by side, it was amazing how our perception changes so fast.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts Eleana. I wonder how your perception of Brea changed? Did you not see her as a little girl anymore?

Congratulations Amy! What a sweet letter to your daughter. Yes, I tell my firstborn all the time that he’s still my little baby. (He loves hearing that.)

a letter to my daughter: life is simple when we're together

Dear little Elle, When I’m present with you, life is simple. We sing and dance, la-ing and oh-ing to music that makes us smile. We play ‘this little piggy went to the market’ with your little toes. We roll around the bed tickling each other. We play hide and seek behind curtains and under blankets. […]

Hi Amy! this is so beautiful! thank you for sharing.

I don't give you pictures or memories

Even though the air was chilly, their smiles warmed by heart.   I sat across from them, listening to her words as she read her love letter to her daughter. There were pauses in her speech as she tried to stifle back tears of joy.   As they sat side by side looking with awe at the album of photographs I so lovingly created […]
