Dear Emma Jean..........

Dear Emma Jean,

I can't ask for anything more in life than to be able to see you and your brother grow each day.  You are still the light of my life and you amaze me every day. I love you more than I knew possible and it's hard to put into words how the smile on your face makes me feel.

It is still very vivid to me how scared I was when I brought you home from the hospital.  I wasn't sure I'd be able to handle being a mother.  Although at times you test my limits, you have made it more joyful than I ever thought it could be. 

You are so smart and funny.  Just this morning you held your brother's hand and rubbed his head saying "you're fine you're fine" as he got changed for the day. You are the world's best big sister.  You always make sure Matthew has a binky in his mouth and a smile on his face.  You have also been making sure he doesn't grow up too soft as you give him an extra smack or take away his toys if he's getting too comfortable.  Always looking out for him ;) haha

You are talking up a storm and sometimes too much.  You love to repeat what we say and make up words that don't exist at the same time.  You melt my heart when you say "I love you Momma" and daddy is just a lost cause when it comes to your cuteness.  You are his little girl forever and he would move the world for you if he had to.

You test your limits with the best of them and although we are still trying to figure out exactly how to reel you in, I know we'll get there someday. 

You LOVE to be the entertainment in the room and it seems as though nothing makes you happier than a laughing audience.  It makes your momma proud.  You've taken to your older cousins with undeniable obsession and whatever Savannah does must be copied by you.

It's so funny to see how things change as bathtime was a struggle a year ago, now it's a struggle to get you out of the tub.  Having Matthew start to be able to be in there with you is a treat you love as well. 

You could eat spaghetti and waffles for days and treats light up your face in a way that makes it way too easy to give you more. 

You've given me the feeling of knowing of contributed at least one thing great into this world and I thank you for that.

I hope nothing but happiness and giggles for you and as I said before.  It may be unattainable but I'm going to do my absolute best to get you as close to it as I can.

I love you with every particle of my being.

- Your Momma
