Mallory Kate,

For the last several months I have looked forward to each Thursday with anticipation. Each passing Thursday meant I was one week closer to holding you in my arms.

Now that you are here I don't want it to be Thursday. I want to stay in this first week forever. I marvel at your tiny little body. I wonder how it's possible that you are real. Although I carried you inside me for 9 months, I still can't believe that you were in my belly a week ago. I held you across my stomach on your very first night and you got the hiccups. They were the same hiccups that I have been feeling for months. Even then I couldn't believe that you came from me. How are you even possible?

You are a beauty. You are wonderful. You are precious. Your mama loves you. Your daddy loves you. Your sisters adore you. We are so happy to finally have you here. Thank you for choosing our family. I love you, Mally-girl.

Love,  Mommy
