Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Psalm 127:3 NKJV
My Precious Baby Girl,
It’s true what “they” say. Time flies!! You’ve grown SO much and I can’t believe you’re 3 months old today! As I gently laid you in your bassinet last night, I took some time to watch you sleep. There are times that I look at you and feel as though I’m dreaming. It’s easy for me to be mesmerized by your sparkling eyes, tiny hands and feet, and unforgettable gummy smile. Your laughter warms my heart and puts your adorable dimple on display. I still wonder how I played any part in creating such a beautiful human being, and we are tremendously blessed to know that you have your health and happiness. In the midst of my euphoric moments reality sets in, and I know it’s not a dream. You really are my daughter, and my life has been forever changed because of you. I thank God for you Alexandra and for all the ways you’ve made me a better person. It’s amazing how much you’ve already taught me, and I know we’re still at the beginning of our long journey ahead.
One day your daddy and I will tell you about the love we have for each other, and the decision we made to expand our family from two to three. In this story you’ll learn that we had hurdles to jump and mountains to climb before we decided to become husband and wife. Our love had to grow, develop, and mature before we were ready to make a life-long commitment to each other. It was a process and one that will last until the Lord calls us home. But with you, sweet child of mine, it was different. The love your father and I feel for you was instantaneous!! From the moment we discovered you were growing in my womb, until the day we met our Baby Tay, (and could finally give you a name!) you had our hearts. I don’t know that I can answer the age old question that asks “how can you love someone so deeply that you only just met?”, but I can completely relate! Even when you cry, scream or holler, poke out your bottom lip (who taught you that?!) and leave me special treats in your diaper, every moment is one that I cherish. Daughter, I can’t promise you that I’ll be perfect. I guarantee I’ve already made some mistakes and there will be plenty more to come, but I will give you the best of me each and every day. Never question or worry about how I feel toward you. You make me proud to be a mom and unconditional love is given a whole new meaning when I hold you in my arms. I love you Alexandra, and like one of our favorite books says, never forget that you are the one and only ever you.
Happy 3 month old day!!
