Dear My baby Ava, yes you are still my baby no matter how old you are 💕 you will always be my first baby who taught me how to be a Mum. How to care so much (and worry), how to be patient and most importantly how I can love you and your caring nature so much. This love is on an insanely new level I have never experienced in my life until your dad and I had you.
You lay here sound asleep in my arms, it makes me feel so blessed that you have been so patient with me over the last 6 months since Lewis was born. You have stepped into the role of a big sister so well, we are so proud of you. It use to be the 3 of us and all eyes were on YOU and everything about you, it still is baby it’s just that my eyes are now ALSO focused on your baby brother Lewis who needs me a lot at the moment. Thank you for giving Lewis lots of mummy time just like you had with me... xxxx you may not quite understand why I am constantly holding baby Lewis, feeding him and sometimes needing to run to him first... but I just want to let you know that this stage won’t be forever, Lewis will be just like you in a year or two, walking around, asking lots of WHY questions a day... but he looks up to you and is learning from you and how patient, funny and caring you are. The day will come when all the attention will be back on you and we can cuddle more, play more, spend that 1 on 1 time with you without having to stop in the middle of a game to feed your brother. I promise you we will have more quality mum daughter time soon 👩❤️👩 As I watch you asleep in my arms on this rare occasion, I lean over and kiss your cheeks that feel like soft little pillows, as I did so when you were a little baby... I just want to tell u again how proud I am of you and how much I love you and your growing bubbly personality everyday and thank you for being patient with me xxx Love you always, in all ways, Mummy
