Dear William (5 months)

Blue and green

Dear William,

Today you are 5 months old. I can hardly believe it. The time has gone by so quickly. It seems like it was just yesterday that you were born. You were this tiny, furious, man-- squirming and crying in my arms. The moment I first saw you, it felt like I'd known you for my whole life.

It has been so hard, William. Nothing could have prepared me for how hard it would be. You poor sweet thing, you just cried and cried all the time. Your dad and I didn't know why. All we wanted was for you to be happy. We just kept loving you with all our hearts and doing the best we could until one day you smiled and then one day you laughed and little by little you have been smiling and laughing more and crying less. We're still working on that though.

I want you to know that I think you're the greatest thing in this world, and I look forward to every day that we have together.

Love always,

I always wanted to write my girls a letter each month, but I never got around to it. :( I'm sure William will love to see this when he gets older!
