Letter #2

My sweet Nora Joy, Hi baby! You're six months old now and so much fun! The last time I wrote to you, you were still in my belly. Now you're becoming your own little person and I can't imagine life without you in it. You fit into our family as if you were always part of [...]

Letter #1

To my daughter, Hi sweet girl! This is the first of many letters I hope to write to you, just like I've done for your big brother. We haven't settled on your name yet but we'll be meeting each other very soon! (You're due in about a month!) Daddy and I decided that we're going [...]

Letter #11

May 12, 2017 Dear Jameson, It's been just over a year since I wrote you a letter. I did write something for your first birthday but I printed it up instead of posting it and it's tucked safely inside your baby book. I hope you still have it somewhere. Today you are 20 months old! [...]

Letter #10

May 6, 2016 Dear Jameson, Almost eight months old already?! I'm not sure where the time is going. But I'm having so much fun with you. You are the perfect little sidekick! We do everything together. If I have some errands to run, you come with me. If I go to lunch with a friend, [...]

Letter #9

January 19, 2016 Dear Jameson, Hi buddy! I just have to let you know that you are the coolest four-month-old I know. Being your mom is seriously the most fun I've ever had (and one time your dad and I went on a speed boat around the island of St. Lucia, went snorkeling off the [...]

Letter #8

October 2, 2015 Dear Jameson, You're sleeping right next to me in the big bed as I write this. You're wearing a gray onesie with black stripes and you're covered in a blanket that has a bunch of cute yellow lions on it. You are sleeping so soundly, and you are absolutely perfect. I've been [...]

Letter #7 (from Dad)

August 19, 2015 In January, when I first knew that you were coming, I knew I was going to be writing this at some point. But to be honest, I didn’t know what to say for a long time. The reality just hadn’t fully sunk in for me I suppose. Then when your cousin, Madelyn, [...]

Letter #6

August 5, 2015 Dear Jameson, You and I just got back from another appointment with one of the midwives who might deliver you and everything is looking great! Your heartbeat is strong, you're at a healthy size (although the midwife did mention you're more on the small side), and you're getting in position to be [...]

Letter #5

July 2, 2015 Dear Jameson, Your cousin Madelyn was born last week! By the time you read this, the two of you might be teenagers (which makes my mind feel like it's going to explode), but right now she's a tiny little thing...only 5 pounds and 10 ounces when she popped out. And you're even [...]

Letter #4

May 13, 2015 J, Hi sweetheart! Your dad and I finally settled on your name (I hope you like it!) and we've started calling you by it. I don't want to post it on here just yet since we haven't told too many people so far, so you'll have to be just "J" for now. [...]
