Juliet, my sweet little girl. One month ago, at this time, I was still pregnant. My heavy hard belly contracting every ten or so minutes, reminding me again and again that you would soon join our family.
That night was a whirlwind. At 6:00 pm I sat with your daddy and James having a hamburger for dinner and only hours later you were placed on my chest for the first time. Oh my, I will never ever forget that night. You were finally here, my daughter. And I was so so in love with you.
I told you right then that I love you. I told you happy birthday. And then we looked at each other, for a long time. You, with your wide little eyes, me with tears clouding my vision.
Over the last month my love for you has grown ten-fold. You are an amazing little girl already. You are a snuggle bunny. You love your brother and boy oh boy does he adore you.
I can't wait to see you grow. I can't wait to show you the world. I can hardly wait to one day play dolls with you and make fairy houses. But I don't want to rush away the right now. You are tiny, and perfect, and wonderful, and you'll only be a newborn for a fleeting moment. And oh I just love it.
I love you my sweet Juliet. Forever and ever.
