6/52


"A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2013."

SOFIA:  You are my goofy child, my prankster.  You are the spitting image of your Papa, though every now and again I find some piece of myself in you and it makes me pause.  You are my lover, and you are my fighter.  You greet me in the morning with sweet, breathy kisses that only the mouth of a little girl can give.  I hope you will look back on this blog and find strength when you're feeling kicked-down, confidence when you're doubting your abilities, and daily reminders of how much love we have for you, for our home, for our marriage, for this little life we've made.  I am thankful for every day I get to be your mum, and you are certainly becoming the most beautiful soul I could have hoped to raise.

This photo was a stand-out favorite, but you can find more from our day here.
