|This is you, only two days old!|
|This is you now! So big!|
Sweet, wonderful Eisley- you have been the biggest blessing in our lives, and your daddy and I adore you more than you will ever know. Especially now that you have started sleeping through the night! *wink* But seriously now, I have so many hopes and dreams for you. I hope that you will know God so much more deeply than your father and I do. I hope that you will be confident, happy, and humble. I hope that you know so much joy in your life, and feel incredibly loved all the time. I hope your daddy and I do a good enough job of letting you know every day how much we love and adore you. How special you are, how beautiful inside and out. I dream that you will have so many good friends that you will have to schedule play-dates two weeks in advance. I dream that you will find a passion at a young age, and cultivate it throughout your life.
You have so much ahead of you, and I am so excited to cheer you on, kiss your boo boos, and teach you how to ride a bike. I can't wait to watch you get excited over the swimming polar bear the first time we go to the zoo. Seriously kiddo, you make this life a million times more beautiful. Even though you can be a big old crab sometimes, watching you change from a squishy little newborn into an adventuresome little toddler has been one of the most incredible experiences of my life.
Mommy loves you, so so much. I can't wait to watch you dig into your very own, very first birthday cake. It will be amazing and exciting. Just don't be surprised if I shed a tear or two. After all, you are my baby, and you are growing up.
