last day

Hailey Lane,

Today is mommy's last day to spend with you before I go back to work tomorrow. It's strange how quickly these 7 weeks flew by. It seemed like it took forever for you to reach 2 weeks of age, and now you're already 7 weeks (tomorrow). I am grateful for the time we got together to bond, just the two of us. We will never stop growing that bond (well, maybe until you are a teenager and decide that I'm uncool). I am going to miss hearing your coos, grunts, whimpers, cries and sweet breathing in my ears all day. You have already grown a lot right in front of my eyes - you are already almost 11 lbs and you must have gotten taller too, because you're about to be too big for your 0-3 month clothes (already?!?!?)!

Of course, Daddy and I will still see you and your big brother as soon as we can every day. I have fallen in love with you baby girl!! I will love every minute I get to watch you grow up. Now I'm going to get back to holding you as much as I can today!

You started smiling at us last week! It's really hard to catch on camera and the pictures don't do you justice (I remember thinking the same thing when Tyson started smiling)

There's nothing quite as peaceful as a sleeping baby. Especially when she's yours :)

Oh, sweet post Ginny. I hope you have a great day back at work. I can't believe how fast the time flies. She's a cutie!

She's beautiful and seeing her smile makes me smile automatically!
Can't wait to see her and all of you again. Love you all, Grandma

She is gorgeous and your letter almost made me cry. Time flies too fast with children.
