Dear Laila 

Last Monday (3/21/16) I felt your first little tooth nubbin. It was bittersweet for me as I am going to miss your contagious gummy grin. We had an amazing time visiting Grammy, grandpa, and aunt Syd in Palm Desert and you got to see the ocean for your first time in San Diego. 

Friday dad and I leave for Florida again. I am getting everything packed up for you to stay with all of your grandparents while we are gone. The thought of leaving you for four nights makes me teary eyed just thinking about it. You are my world and I don’t want to miss anything. I am going to miss you so much. 

I love you to the moon and back. I think about you every second that I am away from you.

Dear Laila

Dear Laila, last night you slept through the night… in my arms. I am hoping we can figure out how to get you to sleep through the night in your crib too! Every day your smile, laugh, and funny little noises make me grow to love you even more. I never knew I would be able to love like I love you and I am so thankful that you have taught me to love in such a deep way.

You are my world and I love my life as your mama.
