Dear Davilyn ~

18 Months! That’s 1.5 years… how is that possible? You are so very much your Mama’s girl. You are attached to me in a way that I never thought possible and it has me wondering just how hard it will be for you to accept a new baby in my arms. I know that, eventually, you will. You will never remember your life without a baby sister, but those first few days, weeks or months will be a big transition for us.
You are talking so much and I am able to understand so much of what you want. This helps me out so much! You have so many words in your vocabulary and the most recent one is “Santa”. You know who this is, although I doubt you know exactly what he does. You soon will and it will be great fun for us all!
Our Elf, Marcus, joined our family this year. He pops up in a new location every morning and we have even seen his colourful masterpieces after playing with crayons! I suspect next year is the year that you will really be involved in his visits.
The other night as I rocked with you for a few minutes before bedtime, you were singing “Twinkle, Twinkle little star” (not quite so clearly, of course.) and you would put your tiny, warm little hand on my face and turn me to look at you. Then you would lean in for a kiss. I love these moments between us. There is not a word that has the power enough to tell you just how much I love you. My only hope is that when I tell you that I love you, you will know the enormity of what I am saying.
I am really enjoying watching the bond between you and Piper grow. You are becoming little playmates and that makes my heart sing! I love when the two of you venture off to her room and all is quiet… when I check on you there are toys or books every where, but you are playing so nicely. I don’t let the mess bother me. I just close the door and enjoy the silence.
I am hoping for you that you have strength in the future, the feeling of seeing a prized dream come true, a bright carefree spirit, but also the wisdom to know in your heart what is most right for you. And always, I am hoping that you will remember the thing most important by far: how much you are loved, how proud I am, always, how truly wonderfully special you are.
Mama loves you Boo,
Love Mama
