FC: Emma Lee | 2012
1: Dear Emma Bella, You are growing into such a beautiful and independent little girl. It is amazing to see the child that you are becoming. You already are so caring and love to share. Everyday you are happy and content and you love to explore and try new things out by yourself. Your laughter and beautiful smile lights up our hearts. We both remember the day we found out we were having a baby. Daddy was at work and mommy found out very late at night. She was was so overwhelmed with excitement that she woke your daddy up in the middle of the night. We both talked about how our life was going to change but we both could not have imagined how much. You have made our family complete. We hope that you grow up loving life. That you love to cook, swim, create art, build things, play sports and try new things. We promise that we will do our best to make sure you feel loved every minute of every day. That you never, EVER doubt that your parents love you. Love, Mummy and Daddy
