Savannah Jo – FOUR MONTHS OLD!

SJ 4MO_6

Savannah JO,

You’re now FOUR months old! It’s amazing how much life can change in the span of four months. The other night, your dad and I were remarking on how we can’t even remember what life was like without you now. You’ve truly changed everything. Savannah, we may not have much of a night life anymore, we may be drowning in dirty diapers, and we may have said goodbye to “sleeping in” forevermore, but, the truth is – I wouldn’t have it any other way. You have made me the happiest woman in the world. I feel like being your Mom has completed me. Did I even know how to “love” someone before you? The love I feel for you is different than anything I’ve felt before. It’s fiercely protective. It’s all consuming. My heart feels like it has exploded. Your dad and I cheer with the most insane enthusiasm over your most minute developmental achievement. Everything you do excites us! We’re so proud of you.

In a a few weeks, we will celebrate Valentine’s Day, and you my little angel are Mommy’s Valentine. In the years to come, I will do my best to teach you what unconditional love is. I will tell you about your Creator. I will remind you that “we love, because He first loved  us”. And, because you will be raised in a house filled in love, because you will give love to others without hesitation, there will be times where your little heart will break. And, in those times I will hold you, like our Heavenly Father holds us. In fact, in a small way, I am beginning to understand how God loves us. The way a Father loves His child. What an indescribable love.

Know that I will forever love you. Forever and ever.
