My Dear Sweet Kayleigh,
You are 7 months old today! I can’t even believe it has been that long since I gave birth to you on that very long day in May. You have grown so much since I wrote to you at 3 months. I had fully intended to write to you at 6 months, but life got in the way… I’ll try to be better about that. Time is flying by so quickly, and I don’t want to miss out on ANYTHING!
Over the last few months, you have learned to say “Mama”. You wave “bye” to Daddy when he leaves for work in the morning some times. You are also sitting up on your own for about 30 seconds at a time!
You’ve had some fun with your cousin Morgan. I hope you two will be the best of friends when you are older!
You have become very interested in watching cartoons, and love to watch the educational videos from KidsTV123 on Youtube.
You are eating solid foods on a regular basis now. Some of your favorites are sweet potatoes, oatmeal, and Grampy’s squash soup, which you DEVOURED on Thanksgiving!
Speaking of Thanksgiving… it was your first, and you had lots of fun spending time with your family. Here you are with Great Grammie. She just loves you!
This year is your first Christmas and Daddy and I are SO excited! We can’t wait to see you rip into your presents on Christmas morning. You have definitely given us a lot to look forward to this year.
You are growing into such a beautiful little girl. People tell me all the time that you look like a little pixie, or a Kewpie doll. They all love your smile, and all of your adorable facial expressions (you get those from your Daddy).
Your Daddy and I are having so much fun with you. You have brought so much joy to our lives, are we are so thankful and blessed to call you our daughter.
Being your Mom is still the best job in the whole world!
Love you always,
