2 months.

My dearest Abigail,

Yesterday you turned two months old. On Christmas day, we dropped you off at the Grandparents house for the evening so we could have a party with all of our friends. Occasionally I'd look around our house wondering who was holding you, only to remember you were safe and soundly sleeping in a house a few miles away. When your father and I finally called it a night, we both agreed that we barely could stand that you weren't here.

Saturday night, like I figured, you didn't sleep through the night like you normally do. I got up around 3:30 when your fussing became too much and groggily fed you your bottle. That's when I realized as much as I thought I'd hate not getting enough sleep and being woken up in the middle of the night...I absolutely love it. In fact, I prefer it. Staring at your beautiful face with only the orange glow of the light in your room is all I need to survive.

Love you much,


  1. What a beautiful little angel! That smile! It just melts my heart! I completely understand how you cannot stand to be away from her... I even suffer with separation anxiety when I'm away from my Frankie!
    I am with Greg and Sheila in SF, and you should see their boys! WOW!!! They are a handful, darn cute!!!! If you want a quick lesson on toddlers, spend a couple of days with these guys.
    Exhausting ~ But also fun! I truly don't know how they do it, although Peek-A-Doodle is definitely a blessing sent from Heaven. I'll send you a video, and then I'll be expecting one from you guys of Abby, RIGHT??
