Dear baby,

If people had told me then what I know now, I would have snuggled you more than what I already do. (And I still snuggle with you every night at bedtime, and have ever since you were born). I would have tried very hard not to blink, just so I never missed a moment of your cuteness with your baby giggles and silly facial expressions. I would have done more tiny handprint and footprint art with you, and I would have even given one of those crazy baby carriers a shot, however, instead your beautiful visual impairment required you to be in my arms and to be close to my heart at all times.
Sweet baby girl, they don’t tell you just how much you will miss it when you grow out of these phases. They don’t tell you how hard it can be sometimes, and how difficult and trying it can be to raise a miniature version of yourself. They don’t tell you that the endless efforts for successful potty training will eventually finish in a victory and that you will no longer be called to help with “bathroom stuff”. One day, you wake up, and all of a sudden, like it happened in the blink of an eye, your tiny baby girl is now an independant big girl whom is ready to take on the world without fear. Oh my sweet baby girl, they don’t tell you just how incredible it is to watch a tiny human develop into a quit witted and intelligent little girl whom has the capacity to retain everything she is taught, and is even capable of teaching others. Baby girl, because they don’t tell you these things, I want to be the one to tell you about them. I want you to know that you are loved beyond measure and that the world is lucky to have you.
I love you so much Madyson.

Love Mommy xoxo
