What can I say? I have no words. Absolutely none.
Okay, I have a few.
There are precious few people in my life that I can claim as truly a part of me. You have been one of those people from the very start.
There are so many memories I could go back through…but I won’t. Just thinking of them now is enough to make me smile.
I wish I could be there with you today, to bring your babies squawky toys that speak three languages and to marvel at what will no doubt be pristine pastel baby perfection. I love you, love you, love you.
I wish you the smell of two fuzzy heads asleep on your shoulder.
I wish you milky baby kisses.
I wish you tiny hands gripping your fingers.
I wish you the glimpse of first smiles.
I wish you clean clothes when you’re running late!
I wish you lavender baby soap and bathtime with bubbles.
I wish you whatever the English equivalent is of Pop Tarts.
I wish you blessed peace-filled naptime when you least expect it.
I wish you joy.
I wish you peace.
I wish you love.
Those bitsy babies will have what no other children on Earth are lucky enough to have – you. You are beautiful and wonderful, and I hope your English baby shower is the most wonderful day yet.
I miss you, and I love you and your beautiful babies.
