Another letter to my baby girl on Christmas Eve...

Maybe this will become a tradition. Here is last year's letter.





Dear Samantha,


I just read the letter I wrote to you last year when you were still in my belly. I am still in disbelief that you have been here with us for 9+ months. You have brought so much extra love and life into our home. Mommy and Daddy love you so much that it hurts sometimes. You are growing so fast and everyday brings something new. We were so excited to start celebrating your first Christmas that we got your first Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving! Since then you have been sporting many cute Christmas outfits and dresses. Your sweet face was the star of our family Christmas card. And you got to meet Santa! Today is Christmas Eve and Mommy is so very excited. To be honest, these past few weeks have been a dream come true celebrating the season with you. I dreamt about my little Christmas baby for years. Tonight we will put out cookies and milk (and carrots for Santa's reindeer) and read The Night Before Christmas. The very same book that was given to Mommy for her first Christmas. You also have a really cute pair of Christmas jammies to wear to bed tonight. This is just the beginning of many more wonderful Christmases with you. I feel so blessed to be your Mommy.

I think I hear reindeer on the roof...

Merry 1st Christmas baby girl...

Love
Mommy & Daddy

So sweet! Isn't it so fun starting new traditions and re-living old ones with your baby? I love it!
