Dear Emily

Dear Emily,

Today is your 2 month birthday, and I have to leave you to go back to school. Even though I keep telling myself there are only 14 days of school left, every time I thought about over the weekend, I’d tear up. I know that you’ll be fine with Daddy, but I’m going to miss you!

I’ll miss all the smiles and coos,

“talking” with you (you’ve learned so many new sounds in the last two weeks),

snuggling you,

tummy time,

watching you sleep,

and seeing your excitement about your flowers (what is it about them that has you so entertained?).

Oh, I know I’ll be able to do all these things when I get home from work. I know you’ll still turn towards the sound of my voice. I know you’ll still make your superhero pose. But I love that time in the morning when we have girl time while we let Daddy sleep in a little. Be good for him and nap well. And I’ll be home as fast as I can.

With all my love,
Mommy

    Aaawww, this makes me tear up. I remember all too well the tears and longing when I had to go back to work after Natalia. It is great that you can leave her with Logan though! 14 days will pass in no time!
