I have been undertaking a very special personal project for about a year and a half now. Early last year when I was approached about taking on this unique and special endeavor with a circle of crazy talented and special women I couldn’t help myself. There are admittedly months where I just haven’t been able to keep up or life has gotten in the way but I have some very special keepsakes for my little ones and am so excited to continue on in this project. I in fact also write letters to my sons as well so essentially it is more of a letters to my children project.
Some of my past letters can be found here and here and even here. Of course there are many more scattered throughout the blog here.
And please follow the circle to my amazing friend Kirsty Larmour Photography. You can find her letter to her beautiful girls right HERE.
Dearest Lillian and Sophia,
A new season has crept up on us in more than one way for sure. Your littlest brother will be joining our family in mere weeks, and I know that things are slowly changing to accommodate his arrival. For you Lillian, that may mean taking on a very new role. You will be so much older and most likely someone that not only nurtures him, but an almost maternal figure to him. Sophia, you are used to be the baby in every sense. Soon you will have a new playmate. You still feel very much like the baby and I am a bit apprehensive at how not only you, but I will handle a slight shift in our roles around here, but more than anything I am just so over joyed and excited to watch the two of you with your new baby. Every morning, you make sure to hug my belly and greet your brother by name, and then tell him you love him. I was a bit apprehensive you might have a hard time having to share some of the attentions with yet another sibling, but you have matured so much into a little girl these past months that I know you will be more than okay. Lillian, I have you to thank especially because you have really set a shining example for what and how a big sister should be. We are all really growing around here aren’t we? I know it has been years since there has been a baby in this house, but I am more than ready to welcome this little boy into our home and our arms, but most importantly into our hearts. He is going to have two very special big sisters to watch over him.
I am so proud of the two of you.
Love you girls so incredibly much,
