St. Patrick's Day

I was so excited about Leighton's St. Patrick's Day outfit this year. It's the little things right? As soon as we learned that we were expecting a girl my mind raced with all the adorable things I would be able to learn to make for her. I was even more excited when Gigi got a sewing machine that does monogramming and embroidery. Below is the result of mommy and Gigi working together to make a cute St. Patrick's Day outfit for Leighton.

Now on to ideas for Easter outifts...

I have so much catching up to do with this blog. This weekend i'll get caught up.

Dear Leighton

Dear Leighton,

This evening as I rocked you to sleep I couldn't help but wonder if you will ever know how full of love my heart is for you. You have brought such joy into my life. Your daddy and I are already so proud of you. You are growing up so fast right before our eyes. Tonight I wondered if I will be able to recall every moment that I want to tell you about one day. I decided that I would write you letters. Letters to you, from me, chronicling our life together. I want to tell you everything so that you always have it and never forget. So as you dream tonight, so begins, Letters to Leighton. Sweet dreams baby girl. I love you.
