Dear Charlotte

Dear Charlotte, 

Mummy loves you. 
Mummy will always love you.
You mean the world to your Daddy and I.

You are growing up so much. IN only 18 and a half months you have changed from a little tiny baby, so dependent on us for every moment, to an independent, cuddly, loveable toddler. 
You amaze me every day. 
New words, new actions, new understandings. Everything is new.
You are a busy girl. Active and curious.

You love baby dolls and cars, balls and shoes, bubbles and colouring. You love to feel the wind in your face, and the feeling of mummy's hair on your forehead. You cling to Mummy around 'new' people, or even people you know- but only for a few minutes- then you're ready to give anyone a hug or kiss, or have them play ball with you. 

You are fearless- if you had it your way, you'd sit on the edge of the couch and lean back, to fall, just to see what happened, you'd try to sleep with the dog in his bed, you'd go down a slide head first.

You are so loving. Giving kisses seems to be your new favourite thing- Mummy, daddy, the dog, the cats, your dolly the floor, your shoes- you'll give anything a kiss! Today while we were driving back from Chapters I looked in the back and there you were, holding your dolly like a baby, and kissing her face and smiling.

Your beauty amazes me. Your big blues eyes get comments every day from complete strangers. You radiate  innocence and hope to me, Charlotte. 

Sometimes, Mummy has hard, or bad days. Days when she really misses your brother, or really feels sorry for herself. But, you help keep me grounded, and help me remember he beauty you bring to this world. Everything when I rock you, read to you, sing to you- I watch your beautiful face become sleepy, and feel you cuddle into my shoulder. This feeling- priceless. 

You are loved, Charlotte.

No matter where life takes you, or what comes your way.
You are loved by your Mother, You are needed by your Mother, and you are worthy of everything that makes you happy. 

Love you forever,

Hello! I know you don’t know me, but we’ve got something in common. I got your blog address off the Stirrup Queen’s blogroll and was wondering if you wouldn’t mind helping me help a couple who is trying to add a little one to their family. We’re holding a silent auction for them this weekend (Friday and Saturday) on and need help getting the word out! We would love it if you would spread the word via social media or here on your blog. Additionally, we are always looking for more donations to auction off, so if you or someone you know might be interested in making a donation, all the information is under the donate tab. If you have any questions or would be willing to post a pre-written blog post about the auction and the sponsored couple, please contact Kristin at Thanks in advance for taking the time to consider this!
