Dear Aubrey

Dear Aubrey,

From the moment I found out you were going to be making your appearance, you have consumed my whole life. The long 9 months we spent waiting for your arrival were full of anticipation and excitement. When you finally made your appearance, it was love at first sight. 

2.5 years and about 250 replays of Toy Story later, I love you more than I ever thought possible. You've made me a better person and have turned my life around completely. 

And now, you're going to be a big sister. I know you don't fully understand what that means just now, but I promise you are going to love it. Even though a new baby is going to be making his or her appearance soon, I don't want you to ever forget that you will always be my first baby and that I will always have a huge spot in my heart for you. There may be times where you think that I care more about your little brother or sister, or that I love them more, but please remember that you will never be replaced. My heart is big enough for both of you and it always will be.

I wanted a place to write about my experiences as your "mumma", along with our favorite activities, recipes, and places life takes us so you can look back and see just how much you are loved, both before and after your baby brother or sister comes along. I wouldn't trade this for anything. Thanks for choosing me.

Love, "Mumma"
