My wish for you... {Orlando Newborn Photographer}

Dear Willow,

Mommy loves you more and more with each passing day. I didn’t really think it was possible to love you so much. The past month did not seem to fly by like your first month in this world. With our entire car buying adventures complete, I have had so many more hours to just sit and stare at you while you sleep. I know, it might sound a bit goofy, but when you are asleep I just want to eat those little cheeks and nibble on your nose! From the very beginning, you have dreams and nightmares that awake you in little screams. Your little screams, make my heart hurt for you, I just want to comfort and protect you. I am very curious to know what it is that makes you smile while you sleep.

“You are so beautiful. You are so cute. You are so pretty.” Anytime your daddy or I say those words to you, you smile from ear to ear. It makes me happy to see you so happy. I promise to protect you from the evils of the world and to keep you always close to my heart whether you are near or far.  

You are starting to discover more and more about yourself. Your hands are your favorite thing, it is so cute to watch you try and stick your long fingers in your mouth. Poor thing, you have choked yourself once or twice with them.

You are a momma’s girl, is what everyone keeps telling me. Secret is, I love that. I love that sometimes you simply just want mommy to hold you. I love when I come home;I am greeted with a big smile from you. I think I enjoy cuddling with you, just as much as you do. Resting my face against your soft little cheeks while you sleep, is pure heaven.

I feel so blessed that each day is just the perfect amount of time. Yes, of course you are getting big so fast, but I feel like each day is just the right amount of time, to give you lots and lots of love!

When a baby is brought into this world, we all have expectations for what they can be. Well of course, we have a few suggestions: a little athlete of some sort, playing ball with your big sister Lily, becoming the best at whatever you choose for this life. But most of all, I want for you, sweet little girl is be happy and to know you will always have a safe and loving place in your mommy and daddy’s arms.

It is my wish that you are able to feel the never ending love that I have for you. I look forward to the days of mommy daughter dates, whatever you want to do, we shall. But for now I will enjoy each and every smile.

Mommy loves you so much
