Dear Laila, 

These last few weeks you have started to take a few steps on your own and you’re working really hard on saying “mama”. You’re also working on four new teeth! 

I’m starting to get really anxious about being away from you for 3 days a week starting this far. I hope it isn’t as hard as I think it will be.

Your first birthday is coming up and mama is a busy bee planning it all. You will have so much fun.

Love you through and through baby boo.
