Growing up is Hard to do

Yo, yo, yo!! 

Just to let you all know - this blog post is kind of a way for me to put off reading German lit. So... you should probably all just yell at me right now.

In other news... Elsie turned three months on Saturday! I seriously can't believe it's been that long already (I know, I know... I say that all. the. freaking. time.) So... here's a little letter to my little girl!
Dear Elsie bear, 

I still can't believe you're mine to keep forever (well, until some handsome dude decides to sweep you off your feet, but let's not talk about that). I look at you and I see a beautiful, smart, curious, and strong little girl. You're always so happy - I'm not really sure how I ended up so lucky. When I wake up in the morning, there you are, ready to greet me with a big, toothless grin. When I tell you I love you, you smile up and me and growl (I'm convinced it's Elsie-language for, "I love you, too, Mom"). When your dad and I sing to you, you look up at us with those big blue eyes of yours and start to coo along. I can't wait until that cooing becomes actual singing - if you're anything like your dad, you will have an amazing voice.

Every day I fall more and more in love with you. Sure, there are days where I wonder what the heck I'm doing, but for the most part, you and I make a pretty good team. I love absolutely everything about you, and I am so excited to watch you grow and progress. Part of me wishes you'd stay little forever, but then I wouldn't get the opportunity to teach you, and that would be pretty lame.

Elsie, you are the best thing that has ever happened to your daddy and I, and we thank God every day that He brought you into our lives. I love you, you little turkey!!

This is so precious. She is amazingly cute, and I CAN'T believe it either. Don't blink before ya know it she'll be 15 and getting her driving permit and then so on and so forth!! Miss you girl. Love the pic btw. Motherhood fits you like a glove, like I knew it would.

Aw how sweet. I love this!
She's so adorable!

RadiantKristen said...

You two are so great together! She is adorable, and you are such a caring, loving momma =)

Kym said...

There isn't much that beats a baby in a basket. Oh yeah, unless she's wearing a tutu. Bam.

Sarah Shumate said...

Hey, you've got a gorgeous voice yourself, missy! She's going to grow up pretty, and kind, and talented - just like her momma!

Jane said...

So sweet :) Elsie looks adorable in the picture. Happy 3 months!

Eve Myers said...

She's so cute!!!!

rooth said...

She has seriously grown so big so fast. You guys certainly do make one stellar team

Kassi Mortensen said...

Aw!! Happy 3 months precious girl!!!

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

Yay, happy 3 months!

Andi of My Beautiful Adventures said...

She's so beyond gorgeous!

Vapid Vixen said...

It feels like she's been a part of your life forever. Like she was always just part of your family. I can't believe she's only been here for 3 months.

I'll Love You Forever said...

Can't believe she turned 3 months already, she is so darling!!

Kelly said...

Bah she is so freaking adorable :) Beautiful note!

Nikki said...

She is just the cutest! I'm so excited for you and all these new blessings in your life. It's really beautiful. Anyway- jetzt musst du lesen! Was liest du gerade? Viele liebe gruesse an dir und dein Mann und die kleine Elsie!

I meant to comment on this before now. I get way too distracted way too easily. Good grief.

I cannot believe that she is three-months old already! That is insane. Why does time fly so quickly in the lives of babies?! Totally not fair.

Lady I LOVE the letters you write. I really need to get into gear and start doing that. I've been meaning to for so long. What a great, great thing. She will so love these when she's older. :) (So will you, I suspect. The things we're bound to forget, even if we try really, really hard not to.)

Diana, Down Home Traveler said...

So incredibly sweet!

lori said...

She is soooo precious, I love that picture! Now that carter is here I can appreciate how quickly the time really does pass!
