An Answered Prayer

When we found out I was pregnant with Reese, Jackson and I prayed throughout the pregnancy that she would be a laid back baby.  Half joking, half serious we would say "Lord, please give us a chill baby."  God answered our prayer!  Parks is great fun, but I would not use the words laid back or chill to describe him and I am so, so thankful to have a child who is a bit less...maintenance, shall we say? Because I use this blog to document our family life, I'm going to brag on Reese this time. 

My Darling Reese,

You are an absolute delight.  You have completely captured my heart and I love you more than I could even describe.  Your daddy is smitten with you and adores you.  Parks thinks you are pretty awesome and likes saying "Hi sweet girl" to you when we get you out of your crib in the morning.  All three of us are in love with you. 

You are such a little beauty.  Your long, dark hair gets everyone's attention and it's the first thing they comment on when they see you.  Your sweet chubby cheeks and pink lips are perfection.  You have an adorable little button nose and big eyes.   People say you look like Parks, but Daddy and I think you look different.  

Your personality is divine.  You are happy and content and you enjoy observing life around you.  You are sweet to cuddle with and you love smiling at mommy, especially after you eat!  You are an outstanding sleeper, you slept 7-8 hours in a row at 1 month and now you sleep 10 hours continuously at 7 weeks.  Amazing!  You are just a dream come true and only fuss when you are tired and you rarely really "cry".  

You are a gift from God and we cherish you.  I'm so thankful God chose me to be your mommy.  We are blessed to call you ours.  I can't wait to watch you grow. I love you my little laid back baby! 

Love, Mommy
