A Letter to My #2...

Dear Madelyn,

I really want to write you this letter to document all of your amazing baby behaviors so far. I have been mesmerized by you since the day I met you. It's like this rush of love came and flooded me and I love it. Everything about you makes me smile more, laugh more and best of all?

Love more.

You are such an amazing baby.


You are so mellow and calm that I sometimes worry if you are okay! You rarely cry--and when you do it's usually because of something that Isabella has done to you (don't worry, I know she doesn't mean it. She just doesn't understand yet--although she is getting better each day!).

Your sleeping habits? I'm still amazed!

For a little one who kept me awake so much during my pregnancy at nite you are definitely letting me start to catch up now.

Like last nite? You woke up just for your paci and didn't wake us up until 5 to eat. I was shocked! And proud of you at the same time.

Now lets talk about eating...girlfriend, you were made to be an eater! You take the bottle like a champ--you literally chug it and gulp it down.

Take today at the doctor's office--a few important pieces of information for the Madelyn record books.

1) You have gained 1 pound (on the dot) and 1 inch (again, on the dot) in your two weeks and one day of life outside of the womb. The ped? Was so impressed with those stats, honey!

2) At your hearing test you were hungry (surprise surprise, honey!) and the doctor performing your test cracked up at my little piglet chugging away. She asked me if there was tequila in your bottle--although personally? I don't know too many people who chug tequila...

I love you so much, Miss Madelyn Reese. I know how blessed I am to have you as my little girl.

I want to raise you to be a loving, caring and compassionate girl. One who is able to forgive people, share with others and as someone who knows how truly lucky they are to be in such a loving home.

I love you, sweetheart, and thank you for the 2 amazing weeks so far. I'm looking forward to so many more with you.

Your proud and adoring Mommy
