Happy 1 Week Birthday Isla Rae!

Dear Isla Rae,

Happy 1 week old birthday!

This week has been the fastest week of my life. I literally feel like I’ve only had a day with you, let alone a whole week. 

Your Dad and I are taking in every single moment with you. Breathing in your sweet baby scent, snuggling you close to our hearts, rocking you to sleep, touching your silky soft skin and kissing your chubby cheeks hundreds of times because we know pretty soon you will become stingy with your kisses. But doing this every minute for the last week does not seem enough. 

Time is already going by so fast and we can see you changing and developing every day. Growing, becoming more alert, learning what your different cries mean, the things you love…the things you hate and Daddy can tell by the increase in all the diaper changes every day. Your Dad has become a pro diaper changer and burper! I've been so proud. You already have him wrapped around your little finger.

You are already a Daddy’s girl. You love it when Daddy bounces you and holds you over his shoulder with your tiny hands dangling down. You look up to us with such love and vulnerability. It melts my heart. You are the most precious thing that I have ever experienced and I thank God every day for blessing me with the opportunity to be your mother.

You have forever changed our lives and this first week is just the beginning. We know with each day, week, month and year our lives will continue to grow and be centered on you...Miss Isla Rae, the love of our lives.
Thanks to God for blessing us with such a precious little being that has made such a profound impact.

We love you to the moon and back,

  1. Sooo sweet! Little girls are amazing. I remember the newborn days with Evie, when it went by too terribly fast and I wanted to hold on to those. It continues to go crazy fast, but in my experience, each new phase is just as awesome as the one before. I was pleasantly surprised by that. It's so incredible to watch them grow and learn and become precious little girls. Evie melts us, even more to this day than her first days! It's an incredible gift to be a parent:)
