To My Family

Dearest Dear Ones,

I have realized that I haven't written you letters in quite some time. It is high time.

My Darling Libby,

Oh how I love you. You have been so easy and fun. You are so fun to watch grow. You make me laugh when you try to suck on your fingers while breastfeeding. It kind of hurts though, so could you please knock it off?
I also love snuggling with you and snuggling is great -- but could we stop the all night nursing business? Oh and naps longer than 30 minutes at a time would be a great addition to our day.
You are so fun with your rolling over and reaching for toys -- especially mid poopy diaper change. It's my favorite.
Keep singing to me, will you? When nothing else can, that, and your huge smile, makes me smile.

Thanks baby. Love you forever and ever,
Mama

Missy Mae Mae,

You are getting so big. I LOVE that you have completely learned how to use the potty. You have only had a couple accidents and none of them poopy. I can totally handle that. You are doing so fantastic telling me when you need to pee, thanks. If you could please stay on the toilet when you're done pooping instead of walking all over the house dripping poo on my carpet and floors looking for me to wipe you, that would be great. Thank you especially for getting me out of that sticky situation at Sams when I was just checking out a laptop and the alarm started going off. Great timing on your part to say, "Mama! I gotta PEE!". You rock.

Thanks for loving your sister so much. Could you please stop riding her like a horse though? She doesn't like that and I don't either. If you could also stop screaming when Libby is down for a nap and waking her up, that would rock the house!

You're my best girl! Love,
Mama

Bubs,

Oh how I love you. I love that you are loving going to preschool now. It was so fun to go watch you and your cohorts sing to the "Grandma's and Grandpa's" today at the Senior Center. You were so cute singing, "Hace Calor o Hace Frio". I loved it. And your little girlfriend Maya? She's a cutie. I'm glad you two have fun playing together at school.

Thank you for taking care of your sisters for me. I love how you make Libby laugh and sing "I Am a Child of God" to her when she is sad and I can't get right to her. It is such a huge help when you take Amelia downstairs and play with her so Libby can have a nap. It is not a huge help though when you tease her, causing her to scream and wake up Libby. Really irritating. Just thought you'd like to know. Also, telling me over and over and over that you want to do something isn't going to make it happen any faster. Nice try though.

You are getting so big so fast and I am going to miss you so much when you go to Kindergarten next year. It will be good for both of us, but I will really miss you.

I love you my Bubs. You're my best bubs in the whole world.

Love,
Mama

Emma,

I still miss you. I still love you. Every day. I can't wait to see you again. I love that your sister talks about playing with you. Do you come and play with her from time to time? I bet you do.
I hope you know what you're in for when you are reunited with this crazy family. Your brother and sister have grand plans for playing dolls and Star Wars and swinging and tag and and and...yeah, they have big plans.

I love you,
Mama

My Darling Dearest Love of my Life,

Oh how I adore you. As you know, your birthday is next Tuesday. You are going to be the big 3-0. I want to do really amazing things for you on your 30th since you gave me the BEST 30th I could have asked for. But, sadly you are just stuck with me on that day. I am staying home on Tuesday night and will make you a great dinner. The house will be clean and the children well behaved. Ok, the house will be straightened and hopefully the kids won't throw any tantrums.

Know that I love you more than anything. You make me laugh, hold me when I cry and are my best friend. You are my favorite.

Love Love Love You!

Me

What a great idea, and what a precious keepsake for your family!

I love these letters Kim. I think I just might have to "borrow" this idea sometime soon.

Kim, this is really sweet. Ivy sucks her fingers while nursing, too! It would be so fun if they can play together sometime. :)
