Christmas is Coming!

Dear Isabella,

It is still so hard to believe that you have been with us for so long already. Time surely flies in the blink of an eye. It feels like just yesterday, I held you for the first time, kissed you for the first time on your rosy little cheeks, snuggled with you for the first time, and nursed for the first time. Yet, it's been almost 5 months already. And so much has changed!

Every day, you just amaze me. You're doing so many neat new things and watching you grow and develop before my own eyes is just such a delight. I could listen to your baby talk all day long. Your giggling makes my heart melt. You are just so delightful! You're always smiling, always happy, and always seeking something to entertain yourself. I think you're going to be my little adventure seeker before long. 

So with Christmas coming, I just wanted to tell you some things I am looking forward to this year. I'm looking forward to letting you play with your stocking (and of course, the things in the stocking). I'm looking forward to you opening all of your presents. Mommy and Daddy are going to wrap them up and you get to help unwrap them all (just like you did with the present Uncle Nic and Aunt Malinda sent you). I'm looking forward to our first family picture with a baby by the Christmas tree at Mom-Mom and Poppy's house. Last year, it was Daddy and Mommy and you were in my belly but nobody could tell. So this year, we get to hold you for all to see. I'm looking forward to taking you to church for your first Christmas Eve service. 

My darling baby, I love all the new adventures we are going on. I love watching all the new things you do. Each day is so wonderful spending it with you. There is nowhere else I want to be than wherever it is that you are. I love you very much and this Christmas will be so much more special because God has blessed us with you!
