My Sweet Baby London,
I love the way you look me right in the eyes and smile when I sing to you. I’ve sang Billy Joel’s Goodnight My Angel to you every night since the first day we brought you home and it still brings me to tears. I’ll forever think of you every time I listen to it.
I love how you can hear my voice in another room or across the house and you can instantly find me. You love being carried and held.
I love how you always have a smile on your little face and you can light up a room. Your laugh is everything. I hope you’re always so happy in life.
I love how you eat anything and everything, so you can grow big and strong.
I love how you are the best sleeper and have slept through the night since you were 2 months old. You love your rest and the only time you ever cry is when you are tired. You always wake up so happy and I love opening your door in the morning and seeing that big old smile!
I love how determined you are to keep up with your big sister. You try so hard to walk and will be flying around the house in no time.
I love how you suck your little thumb. You’ve been a thumb sucker since day one and I know I’ll have to break you of that one day, but for now I love how you comfort yourself and you look so cute too!
I love how you are going to get to be a big sister! You will have such a special bond with your little baby sister or brother since you will be so close in age and I can’t wait to see you both grow up together.
I love seeing you grow but remember you will always be my baby. This has been one of the best years of my life because of you. Thank you for choosing me to be your mama. I hope I can always make you as happy as you’ve made me. Happy first birthday my angel. I will love you forever!
