dear sweet little isla,
i love you more than i could ever hope to describe. there are no words good enough for how deep, and strong, and forever i will love you. i've been able to hold your tiny body in my arms for 231 days and those days have flown by. you are growing, and learning, and changing by the minute. it seems like i blinked my eyes and you are 7 1/2 months old. it would be silly of me to believe that time will slow down. it will continue. you will keep getting bigger, smarter, and more beautiful.
i am writing this because you are asleep in your crib upstairs. i am downstairs on the couch watching the monitor. and i miss you.
this love is something i first experienced with you. and i am forever grateful for you, my baby.
