I received the following email from my best friend after emailing Skylar's two month letter. It is the most heart warming thing ever and I can't express how it has made me feel.
OMG Love, your expressions are truly amazing. Right when I began reading your letter to Skylar I got tears in my eyes....I can "feel" how close you are bonding to one another. In the begining of your letter you were stating how when someone else is holding Skylar she will look around until she sees you and then she will feel comfort. Remember, this happened tonight when I was holding her in the office?! I remember she was a little fussy in my arms, but then right when she made eye contact with you she settled her little self right down.
There is no doubt how much she loves and appreciates her Mommy! She will always feel this love you have given her....even from the day when she was curled up in your little tummy! Stephanie, you are beyond words of an absolutely wonderful Mother! The way you hold Baby Skylar, look into her eyes and comfort her when she is happy and sad are only expressions of your love for her. The things that get me are those things we can't see, can't touch, but can only be felt from the heart! These are deeper than words can say, but you "say" them so well. I can "feel" how much you love her but I can only imagine giving birth to a beautiful, healthy baby and having her be your everything! Oh, how lucky the two of you are....to have each other's love.
I know when she gets older and reads these letters you have written for her, she will get a deeper understanding of your love for her. I only wish my mom would have done the same for us. And just remember that as your letters pile up, and time passes by, she will always be your little girl!
Skylar, Auntie loves you with all my heart! Thank you for letting me hold you and not getting too fussy, and for letting me burp you and spitting up on my pants :) and maybe one day feed you (when you're on peas and carrots....yummo). I really cherish all those little moments with you! You have brought so much joy into my life for the little amount of time I have known you. But even when I'm not at your house I can feel your love! You are always in my heart little niece! I am so grateful to have you both in my life....beyond what words can say.
I love you, I love you, I love you!
Love, Tara & Auntie Tara
