Sweet Emma Kathleen. …has it really been 2 months since we met you for the very first time? It seems like only yesterday. ..yet, at the same time, I cannot remember a time when I did not love you more than life.
You are a shining promise that there is still hope, and innocence, and perfection, that there is a reason to keep believing in the good in this world, in spite of the pain, anger and violence we see all around us.
I am in awe with each change we see in you every day….the smiles, the alertness, the way you gaze at the people who love and nurture you…as if you are taking in every detail, and memorizing every moment, just like we are.
I wish we could protect you from all of life’s realities…I wish we could pause time and keep you just the way you are right now. But we cant, and the truth is, we wouldn’t truly want to, because we love each and every milestone.
So instead, I will simply take in every moment and hold each memory close to my heart. Know always that you are loved deeply. …and that we will always be here for you.
Happy ‘two month’ birthday Peanut. Grandma loves you…to the moon and back. ..yesterday, today, tomorrow and forever. ❤
