10 Weeks Already

My Dear Sweet Isabella,

I can hardly believe that you have been with us for ten weeks now. Yesterday marked your ten week birthday. It still feels like yesterday when I first held you in my arms and felt love like I never felt before. There are no words to describe the feeling a mother has when she holds her very first child in her arms. I waited so long to meet you, hold you, kiss you, snuggle with you. And when that moment finally came, my heart overflowed with so many emotions. I still feel those emotions now. 

You are so different now than you were in the very beginning. Like all babies, you have already taken on a personality so unique. You are my little cuddler. You love cuddle time with Mommy and Daddy. Those moments are marvelous! I love cuddling with you. You are so full of smiles and giggles now, too. Your smile melts my heart. You are ticklish, too. I love to tickle your tummy and watch you smile. 

My heart is a little broken with having to go back to work in a week. But Sweet Isabella, I have enjoyed my time here at home with you. I'm so glad we had the extra snuggles, cuddles, kisses, and bonding time. Now, you'll get that time with your Mom-Mom and Poppy. I know you'll enjoy spending time with them while Mommy and Daddy work. You've made my life so special and I am forever changed because of you.
