Baby's First Valentine's Day

Hi Sweetheart,
Mommy loves you! You are Mommy's little valentine.. I wish you were here so I could give you so many kisses. You're too little for the chocolate kind, although I bet your sweet little teeth that are growing would chomp on them happily! Yes you would baby, you would think chocolate was so sweet and yummy! You would have to settle just for Mommy kisses though. Gram bought you a pink teddy bear for Valentine's Day. She bought the same one for your cousins Will and Aaron in the brown color. I put your K Bib on the bear and I've been snuggling with it on the couch all week. I bought you a little pink puppy since pink puppies make us think of you. Then I found a Mommy pink puppy and a Daddy brown puppy with a pink heart and I just had to have the family of 3 puppies! Daddy fussed at Mommy and said we had too many puppies! But then he bought another one for Mommy anyway since he knows I love anything that reminds me of our little princess.. that's YOU! The most beautiful little pink princess. I wish I could set you up between all your pink puppies for a picture. You would be six months old and just sitting up by yourself~! If you fell, it would be ok because you would land on the pink puppies and they are soft like clouds in heaven! Are you six months old where you are, baby girl? Or are you a newborn baby forever and ever? Remember Katie, Mommy doesn't understand what it's like where you are. You will have to tell me sometime.

I also gave Gram a card from you today. I put the card on the pink bear's lap and when Gram saw it, she said "OH! Thank you Kathlyn!" I "signed" it from you and put scribbles on it like you would have. I wonder if you would have written those marks, or just tried to suck on the pen! Probably both, silly girl! Putting everything in your mouth! So I also ripped a piece off the tip of Gram's card where you would have chewed it. Mommy can't leave anything alone with Kathlyn or the doggies because they will all get chewed to pieces. Oh no, baby girl! Oh no! Oh no! I can just see you laughing when I say "oh no, oh no!" over and over again. Your cousin Reed used to laugh when Mommy said "Oh no!" So I would say it over and over again and he would just laugh and repeat it after me. It was so cute, and I wish I could enjoy those moments with you, my precious daughter.

I also made you your own valentine and so did your friend Josh. He spelled your name wrong! He is too little to spell, so he just put the letters wherever he wanted. I guess he is your little boyfriend. Uh oh! Daddy better watch out!

Oh Katie-cat... we would have had so much fun together.

Kiss Granddaddy for me and for Gram.. let his mustache tickle your cheeks and your sweet fingers... and give Jesus a hug every day because He loves you so much too. You are such a special girl, and you are still my baby.

Love you forever,

Tell Ciaran that his Mommy made this for you!
