#31day writing challenge >>> DAY 3 /iiley's monthly photo shoot >>> 4 months!!!

Dearest Ireland, 

Four months? It feels like just yesterday I held you for the first time. You are such a big girl now! You've suddenly developed such a spunky personality...girl, you love to smile! Anyone and everyone that looks at you, you smile! Being your mom is such a JOY!

Baby, this month I'm doing a writing challenge. For 31 days (straight) I'm writing about "focusing on the 5 senses". Don't worry, little one, I'll teach you all about them! 

Today, I'm focusing on sight. 

As I look at these pictures, I'm in awe. Ireland, I think you are beautiful. Actually, the most beautiful human I've ever laid eyes on. I'm so blessed to look at you EVERY DAY. From your head to your toes, you're beautiful. Remember to always love yourself, be kind to yourself. Believe you're stunning, because you are. And mostly, remember that intensely loving others makes you MOST beautiful. It's not about the outside, little one, it is the HEART. One day, insecurity will haunt you. It will knock on your door and wait for your darkest hour. Don't let it! Pray it away. I will forever be HERE. I will forever tell you you're beautiful...and mean it. 

I pray now for the things you see.
The honorable and the faulty. 

Be careful little eyes what you see. 

Daddy and I will teach you but your wisdom will guide you. 

You've made my life glorious
Happy 4 months, iiley Grace Gums. 
I love you.
