I was inspired to write this letter after reading Suprise Mama’s post to her child. What a great idea and thank you for the inspiration mama! So now I would like to share with you the letter I wrote to my 9 month old daughter. Enjoy!
Time has moved so quickly. It seems as though just yesterday you were this tiny little dancing bean inside my belly. Now you are 9 months old and have become this beautiful little person.
I’m realizing very quickly now that you are crawling and climbing about to take in every moment. Especially the peaceful, quiet moments like this one as I watch you napping with your tiny lips quivering about as if your still nursing.
Life is filled with distractions and now with you I have a clear direction and purpose, when life started making me question my place.
When I look at you I am filled with a love I have never felt before. Don’t get me wrong bug, I love your daddy so much, but a mothers love for her baby girl is indescribable and magical. You are teaching me every day to be more patient, live in the moment and embrace the time we have been given to share together before you are all grown up and ready to discover the world on your own. Because as much as I don’t want to think about it now, there will be a time when I won’t see you every day.
I know you are going to do great things in life. You are already such and incredible little lady and I will support you and help you to grow to be everything you want to become.
I will cherish all the moments I get to enjoy with you. I love you beyond measure, and I am honored that I was chosen to be your mother.
With lots of love,
