  1. Letters to my Daughters | Dearest Sophia

    Every month I write a letter to my children. I have been a part of an amazing group of women for over two years now and treasure these letters and these ladies I share such a special project with dearly!

    Please continue on to my amazing friend Stephanie of Lifeographer’s blog HERE to read her letter.

    Dearest Sophia,

    The winds of change are upon us. Daily you seem to grow just a bit more. Change just a bit more. You are so bright and so incredibly receptive. You soak up life and wonder like a sponge. You have that same curiosity about every little thing possible and yet you have a bit of an old soul and the mature way in which we can have our little chats and conversations warm my heart.

    You are so vibrant. So full of life. So beautiful and so incredibly amazing. We spend so much time together and I am realizing that the fall will be here before I know it and you will be heading off to kindergarten with a backpack overflowing with dreams and ideals. I won’t be able to go with you. I will have to let go of my grip, finger by finger and watch you fly. I have given you those very wings. You will do just fine.

    Even so, I will miss our impromptu day trips to your favorite store (target) and our Starbucks runs. I will miss our frolics in the mountains and our cuddle sessions while I work and the other kids are in school. I will miss being the center of your world. As selfish as that sounds I will miss that almost the most.

    I just love you so much Jelly Bean.

    And I am trying not to rush so far ahead I forget to live in the now and get all the extra snuggles and hugs and time alone with you. That is the hardest part of all.

    Stay Little Please,

  2. Letters To My Daughters | Dearest Sophia

    Sweet Sophia,

    It has been quite a while since my last letter and I admit this is somewhat overdue. Our family has undergone a bit of change and you have really began to grow and adapt and live right up to the challenges that have come your way. We welcomed a little baby boy into our family, a little brother seemingly just for you. You were the baby for many years and we all held our breath with anticipation as you met him for the very first time. Since that fateful moment it has been nothing but love behind your eyes. You want to help with every little thing.. and I let you. I let you because you are truly helpful but I also let you because I know that you see how important you are and how much you are coming to mean to your little Ezra. I watch how you coo over him and how his very first smiles are often aimed at you. I see how when you hold him you are careful to support his neck and you whisper in his tiny ears little bits of love and affirmation just as I do to you.  You are another little mommy to him.  I am always in awe of the dynamic and how sweet it is to watch you two.

    I also know that despite your brave face there are moments when you need me all to yourself and I do my very best to accommodate you there. Not out of duty, but out of love. I want you to know you are just as special if not more so, and I am proud of you. I am so proud of you. And I love you. And you will always be our baby too.

    Love you!

    Now please head to my amazing friend Emma of Emma Wood Photography HERE and read her letter to her sweet girl!

    Also as a special note thank you SO much to My Little Jules for sending this beautiful dress. It made Sophia feel so special!
