Dear Paige

Dear Paige,

I feel so blessed to have you. I thank God for you everyday. All I have to do is look at your sweet face and I melt. Even with all your screaming and little fits, you only need to smile at me and I'm all yours. I am so very happy that you are a part of our family. It's funny how I didn't think I would need a daughter, but now I can't imagine my life without you. I love your laugh. I love how the littlest things bring you pure delight. I love the 7 tiny freckles on your nose. I love the intensity of your eyes. The blue, the aqua, the green and the grey bits. I love that they are doe-shaped and that your lashes seem to go on forever. I love your pink lips and how you let me kiss them. I love your rosy cheeks and how you let me squeeze them. I lOVE your curls. Oh how I love those curls. Every last, crazy, stick straight up, amazing curl. I love that you're obsessed with your pink crocs and will only wear the pink crocs. I love that you love your precious "dog dog" that Uncle Brad gave you. I love that you drag it around the house and everywhere we go. I love that when you are looking for it, you call out "DOOOOOOG DOOOOOOG" in a sing-songy voice. It's just really the cutest thing...ever. I love that you love books. But if I start reading one you don't like, you push it away. I love that you like to flash me your tummy on all occasions so I will tickle it. I love that when I hold up my phone you say "cheese!" I love that you suck your thumb just like I did. I love that you rub your little nose with your middle finger while you suck that delicious thumb of yours. I love that you hold my finger when we walk. I love that you let me hold you. How long will that last? I hope forever. Oh my sweet baby girl. Thank you for letting me love you. Thank you for being you. I LOVE YOU. ALL OF YOU.
