Dear Baci,

Baci

I love you dearly my baby boy! I know I tell you every day, but I think writing my feelings down might show a bit of my appreciation for you. You’re the most adorable creature on the planet and you have made my life complete. You are so rambunctious and have such an outgoing personality! You show me every emotion so clearly that it makes me treat you like my child. When my spirits are low you raise me up with a kiss or two and that big, shining smile on your face always brings one to mine! I hope I make you as happy as you make me, and I will work hard each day to make sure you live the fullest life possible! You are my family and you are cherished. I can’t wait to spend the next hopefully 15+ years of my life taking care of you.

Love Momma <3

Dear Paisley,

Paisley

You are my little ray of sunshine each morning. From the moment you ran on your awkward puppy paws towards me, I knew it was love at first sight. I remember holding you for the first time–you were not even a pound! You fit in the palm of my hand, your tiny nose sniffing the air, your little button eyes looking quizzically at me. You had that “puppy smell” for probably a month straight, and that beats “new car smell” in my book!

You bring so much joy to me and everyone else who you come in contact with. If only we all could approach each person we meet with your kind and gentle spirit!

You have much to teach all of us about being human. Enjoy the simple things. Take a brisk walk around the neighborhood. Relish the scent of freshly fallen leaves. Splash in the puddles after a good storm! Delight in the joy of an afternoon nap in the sun. And of course, never turn down a game of fetch or a treat!

Paisley, you are my fur baby, my little angel, my little teddy bear. I am so blessed to have you and pray that God keeps you on this earth for many more years to come.

Dear Payton,

Your love is truly amazing and inspirational. You’ve been with me through so much. You’re the silliest guy in the whole world and I will always love you. You helped mommy make it through daddy’s deployment and losing something so great. You were the only constant. Mommy loves you and I’m so thankful for you.
