Forever Changed

Dear Isabella,

I cannot believe how much life has changed since you arrived three weeks ago. I used to wonder how new parents did it, how they just changed their life around when a baby changed their world. But it's just one of those things that changes itself. Life will never be the same since you have come into my life.
I love to spend my time with you. Even though you are still so little, and there's nothing that you play with yet, you've started to recognize the sound of your name. Whenever I say your name, you look in my general direction. You know my voice so well. You and I have shared many conversations, of course I'm the only one doing the talking right now. I love how you can sleep for an hour or two just laying on my chest, wrapped or covered in a blanket. There is no better feeling than snuggles and cuddles with you. 

Your daddy is forever changed, too. He's a pro at changing your diaper already. He loves his snuggles and cuddles from you. When he snuggles with you, he likes to nap at the same time. There's nothing sweeter than a little Daddy/Baby nap time. I love to see how content you are just sleep in your daddy's arms. Some little girls never get to meet their daddy, whether it's because those daddies choose to leave or because they are longer here (like your Uncle John). I hope and pray that you grow up to cherish the moments you get to spend with your daddy. He's so in love with you and I know you already love him. 

I just wanted to thank you, Isabella, for coming into my world, for giving me so much joy. My life is unbelievably changed and I wouldn't ever ask for it to go back to the way it was. My sleepless nights are worth it. Yes, Mommy gets frustrated sometimes when you won't go back to sleep easily after a middle of the night feeding, but I dreamed of these days for so long. And now you are here and life is forever changed. Thank you for changing my life!
